    I used to when I was in high school to treat ADHD (or at least what some quack suspected was ADHD :doubt: ), however after sophomore year of college I ceased intake cold turkey.

    What about you?

    I've taken AD's before, but not for clinically-diagnosed depression.

    I took one for a couple of weeks to try to stop smoking. I didn't stop smoking, but I was a happy little camper. Problem was, I was tripping. "Oh, look at the pretty clouds, how the light is pink, and bends...oh! shit! the ROAD!" I'm a weenie, but I had little flashbacks, slide backs, for a year after I stopped taking it.

    My favorite med of all time was a pain med, a narcotic. The hospital gave it to me after my son was born. Happy, happy, happy pills. Never did find out what they were, but DAYum! they were the shit.

    Odd, Ritalin was the kids version of Coke. It was a stimulant, because there's a backwards effect for ADHD. I gave my son a cup of coffee every day and he was fine. Learned that trick from my friend's pediatrician, because he told her to give her son coffee after his breathing treatments, which make people hyper. I think the drug in the breathing treatments is Albuterol.

    Nope, but I am the reason several former employers were taking them.

    I used to but I'm not sure they are really as necessary as big pharma would like you to believe. They have perculiar side effects. I used to think exercises was the best AD.
