ADHD and other prescription drugsJuly 21, 2012 0 Comments
If you haven't heard by now, children are taking ADHD meds and using them non-prescribed to get a high. Things like Adderall and Ritalin have been used for speed like highs and often used as a dieuretic in an attempt at weight loss.
The most recent drug that has seems to have come along in this category is Vyvanse. Vyvanse is a stimulant. Misuse of stimulants may cause sudden death and serious heart problems. Vyvanse has a risk of abuse or dependence.
Selling or sharing Vyvanse or any non prescribed prescription drug may harm others and is illegal.
Basically, a neighborhood kid will show up at your home and raid your medicine cabinet. It is usually someone you know, but never in a million years would you think he would be stealing your family's prescriptions.
Please make sure ALL prescription drugs are put up so that this doesn't happen to you!
