Former Adderall Addict

by Kerri Ann
(St. Louis, MO)

I'm 33 years old and have been on adderall about 10 years. At first it was great and helped me through college, however your body gets immune to the drug and you have to up your dosage. Before I knew it I was addicted and couldn't live without it and used it more as a diet pill and a recreation drug. I have never been addicted to anything in my life, besides this "so called" prescription drug.


I believe it should be banned and believe it ruins people inside and out. This drug totally took me over and my life. It ruined me. I use to be a beautiful girl and after years of abuse I looked like the pictures of someone before and after crystal meth.

I have spent the last year going to plastic surgeons just to feel good about my physical appearance the adderall aged me 15 years..... I finally quit a year in a half ago, it truly was the hardest thing I have ever had to do, and it took me getting pregnant to stop.....

Thank God for this beautiful blessing God gave me, she has saved my life! I just want people to know how horrible this drug really is, I tried many times to quit and I never could until I got pregnant.... People might as well do cocaine or meth it is the same horrible side effects and addiction. And parents PLEASE PLEASE do NOT let doctors put your children on this junk. You as a parent are preparing your child to be an ADDICT the rest of their lives.
