wtf is Vyvanse? and does it increase memory retention by increasing production of synaptic pathways inside your cortex?

if not... then no.

Why would use use this to help you study?
It's Adderall (basically). Ironic that this is an Organic Chemistry test and Vyvanse is a different enantiomer mixture of the same drug that makes up Adderall with another ingredient that makes it inert until it's metabolized (so it can't be abused).

Adderall is commonly prescribed as a psychostimulant treatment for children and adults with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Other recognized uses include:

Idiopathic Central Nervous System Hypersomnia established by recognized diagnostic criteria
Drug-induced brain dysfunction
Epilepsy
Senile apathetic behavior
Psychiatric differential diagnosis of depression


ok... again..

WHY are you taking this to study.

I think you're a drug addict and are abusing a prescription you were given for other than it's intended purposes (if it is even your prescription).

Mods... lock this up and call his mom.

Someone woke up on the wrong side of the fucking bed. College students take Adderall and Ritalin to cram. I've never tried it before, but could, and I'm wondering if it's worth it.

Drug addict? I stopped taking my prescription painkillers when I was given them for a broken collar bone because I was no longer in pain, and I still had a whole lot to go in the bottle. I'm not trying to get high, I'm trying to cram.

so i was right. you are abusing a prescription that wasn't written for you (if you didn't obtain it illegally) for something other than it's intended purposes.


College students also do alot of other illegal things? if they jumped off a cliff, would you jump off a cliff?


lol he's trying to justify doing something illegal, lock it up.

Get off your high horse. I'm looking for advice for anyone that has tried studying on Adderall.

as someone who's been here for a while, you should know that looking for info on illegal matters is a violation of the forum rules.

stop trying to justify illegal actions. that's the first sign of an addict.

Jesus Christ, do you have repressed issues with drug addiction? A quick search on Adderall or Ritalin, as broken as FT search is, shows that it's been discussed freely around here. You make it sound like I'm snorting a line of coke off a fat doobie and chasing it all down with some vodka.
