  1. answering whether or not you think it’s good for people to use Adderall is hard think to answer cause i am not really sure what the effect would do a person cause i never new people would try to do that.Julian Savulescu said The reason why so many are diagnosed with A.D.H.D. is that one of the most important determinants of success in life, economic and social, is self-control or impulse control. If you can’t withstand temptations of small rewards now for bigger rewards in the future, your life goes worse, whatever you want to achieve. Ritalin and other stimulants improve impulse control.
    A lot of times people think that you can take what ever pills you want and nothing bad would happen. You have to be very careful what you take cause the side effects can be horrendous to our body’s. Julian Savulescu says Like everything in life, impulse control varies across the population. Some are lucky, some are unlucky. Drugs like Ritalin offer the prospect of correcting natural inequality and disadvantage. This complies with any pills you take if your Doctor does not give you cause the drug can kill you or hurt you lot. So I say you should only take pills your doctor gives you to be careful.

  2. Attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a chronic condition which includes attention difficulty, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. Savulescu states, “What defines human beings is their extraordinary cognitive power and their ability to enhance that power through reading, writing, computing and now smart drugs”. Drugs should not be an option when it comes to any non-medical situation. There are many other tips to build confidence and success within an individual and it should be used for medical purposes only.
    Consuming drugs for non-medical purposes should not be allowed. It is stated that millions of individuals around the world use amphetamine-like drugs such as Ritalin and Adderall to help build success and use as anti-depressants. Savulescu states, “Ten percent of children are diagnosed as having A.D.H.D. and placed on stimulants, amphetamine-like drugs such as Ritalin and Adderall. If you can’t withstand temptations of small rewards now for bigger rewards in the future, your life goes worse, whatever you want to achieve”. There are many non-harmful ways people can use to accomplish their tasks or goals, but drugs is definitely not an option. For example, a college with ADHD taking drugs for their condition is acceptable because they have a condition that needs to be treated, but if a student takes drugs for succeeding in school that is completely unacceptable because there other ways to be a successful student. Some ways that are helpful are studying, doing homework, etc. All these components will help build confidence and success without any harm done to the body and brain.

  3. Poison when used in small amounts can be used as a medicine, reversely when to much of a single medicine is used it can be detrimental to your health. What I’m getting at is if we always used medicine correctly there wouldn’t be any problems giving people Adderall. However, since there is no easy way to police the people who would misuse it should we legalize it for the use of everyday people it shouldn’t be for them.
    Man kind has many difficult situations they must face in life. learning is one such thing, it comes easier to some and harder to others. Only those who have extreme issues in these areas should be allowed the use of drugs to help them. If everyday people turn to drugs to solve their problems it takes away our humanity and our ability to face adversities. Eventually we will spiral downwards to where we are addicted to these medicines and others that make even the most minuet difficulty in our life easy. That is not the way humans should live. We should grit our teeth and face our hardships head on, because believe it or not these hardships will make us stronger.
    Martha Farah said it best “First, you will probably not get killed or lose a war if you are late with your PowerPoint presentation. On the scales of risk and benefit, the risks of stimulant misuse weigh more heavily against the benefits in most work contexts than against survival in war. Second, frequency of use is a major determinant of addiction risk. Regular use on the job is an invitation to dependence. And drug dependence is a problem that makes ordinary workplace pressures look delightful in comparison.” (Pills’ Outweigh the Benefits) Man simply doesn’t need a pill that helps them focus, they should be able to do that and get their job without the use of drugs. Drugs are also highly addictive and the results are sometimes death, and at what price. Maybe you wanted to get your presentation in early or you had to stay at work late to get something done. There are other alternatives to this drug, for instance coffee, which millions of people drink everyday.
    Next I would like to talk about what drugs do to us on a personal level. “However, he avoids taking those drugs outside of the workplace for one major reason: The drugs alter his personality. His creativity, energy and happiness all decrease dramatically when he’s on A.D.H.D. medication, causing him to seem very focused but emotionally flat. Others have reported similar side effects, and Hunter experienced them more intensely when he was previously taking Concerta, a different kind of A.D.H.D. medication that releases slowly over time.” (Heather brady, With Adderall There’s Greater Productivity, But at What Cost?) At what costs will people go to get ahead? Everyday people taking this drug is going to far, risking our happiness and personality is just to great of a sacrifice for being able to think more clearly. What if everyone started taking it and we all became smarter, but we were dull and unhappy. That would be a pretty sad world to live in, certainly not one I would want to live in.
    In short, the drug is to dangerous and has to many risk factors to be considered when debating whether or not to release it for everyday use. Not only that there would be no way to find violators of the drug and punish them in an efficient way. the drug would take away our personality and happiness with little reward. It’s for these reasons that this drug should be limited to the people who legitimately need them and no one should use them for their own personal gain.

  4. To start with, ADHD are listed among many other notorious mental disorders but it is being viewed as the one that hinders the potential of one person the most. People with ADHD find it hard to concentrate in study, work..etcetera. Consequently smart drugs have been made for the patients to use. Julian Savulescu believes, “ADHD Drugs are Equalizers if Used Properly”. While I agree that smart drugs will do good with proper regulation; there are some other factors to consider. Firstly, Adderall is still amphetamine after all. Temporary usage of this kind of drug may work wonder but for the long term usage there are many side effects. For examples, hyperactivity and the dependence on the drug. Secondly, this kind of drug cannot be safe to choose even with restriction. It is the same form that use to make illegal drug. Thirdly, using amphetamine for ADHD patients to be able to work more is rather an abuse. Therefore, ‘smart drug’ should not be encouraged.

    To sum up, while smart drug may work temporarily we should instead think about the long term and properly study the side effects.

  5. Giving people with a.d.h.d drugs to calm them down and release their stress is outrages. A lot of people have problems in life and will eventually be overwhelm with their obstacles giving them stress. people with out a.d.h.d have stress so what then everyone is going to need drugs? the main thing for people to understand is not to let the government diagnose them with diseases. “The reason why so many are diagnosed with A.D.H.D. is that one of the most important determinants of success in life, economic and social, is self-control or impulse control”. People our just overwhelm with life making them get a.d.h.d so that means anybody could be diagnose with it making them have to take medication. The bottom line is that giving drugs for a.d.h.d do doesn’t make it better but makes it worse.

    The world today believes that ever mental problem like a.d.h.d could be solved by a medical solution. A lot of people had even died from scientist and doctors trying to cure mental illness with drugs. If we are give in drugs just because we are going through stress and can’t handle it and then even give it a name something is wrong with the world we live in. we could control are problems because “Like everything in life, impulse control varies across the population. Some are lucky, some are unlucky”. At the end of the day don’t let a condition run yuor life but just find a way to overcome it.

  6. A.D.H.D. Drugs Are Equalizers in a Stressful World, If Used Properly.

    The evolution of the new drugs impact or lives, and not only for children also for teens and adults. Everybody have different reasons of use drugs, but also at the same times everybody decided to use or not. different person impact our lives like the same of drugs, ”Eighty-five percent of Americans use caffeine, Ten percent of children are diagnosed as having A.D.H.D. and placed on stimulants, amphetamine-like drugs such as Ritalin and Adderall. More professionals are using the same drugs.” And the reason of this is because we don’t have self-control, economy.
    All drugs and affect you doesn’t matter of what kind of drugs is, you can use different drugs to feel better in your life or in your work but you need to find information first about what kind of drugs you are using and what you would need to have to use the drug, and you need to have a lot of control about the drug and make you live more better , maybe if you use the drugs, those drugs can make you feel better but with the pass of the time you would be see the change in your body that this drugs cause and maybe because you say you are young you can ate or used different drugs but in the future you would we see the consequences.
    All drugs make a consequence in your body after o before a time, you would we see the consequences, sometimes your body really needing but sometimes you only use those drugs because you don’t have the control in the society and you think that those drugs give you the power to be better that other but you need to think first about drugs and find information that is necessary to understand the main reason of use drugs and not.

  8. Too much of it can make you sick. You could overdoes and it will probably kill you. And then you’ll be gone and you won’t be able to do any of the things you wanted to do better by taking the drug.

    How do you prevent people form taking too much? And will people you worry about you if you take too much of it?? It’s hard to say to a person don’t do that. You don’t know how they react. Everyone will do their own thing.

    If a person want to use it you can use reverse psychology on them. But this will not always work. So people will still put themselves in danger.
