Prescription stimulants continue to be misused on college campuses. Medications such as Adderall®, Ritalin®, and Dexedrine® help manage symptoms of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). Using someone else’s stimulants to help study or to avoid boredom is very dangerous.
These drugs are unsafe for misuse; although they have been cleared by The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), they can have serious side effects when used incorrectly. Taking stimulants with other substances, especially alcohol, can be harmful and deadly.
