Well... You kind of were doing "drugs" if you want to get technical. That does rather suck.
The thing about this particular case is that OP was using a controlled substance that was obviously not prescribed to her. If it were, the adderall (an ADHD medication) would have calmed her down, as opposed to "help stay awake" as it does for people without ADHD. In short, she was using a partly-legal substance that was not prescribed to her to achieve a purpose opposite of what the drug its used for. It was illegal, hands down, 100%. YDI, OP.
@3 People with ADHD, like me, take these stimulant medications to get our focus just to normal levels, which is a small thing to ask. Then theres f-wits like you who use it for unfair advantage. And btw, dexamphetamine doesnt do shit except make your brain run faster, even if you snort it,Enjoy being the clown who thinks hes cool by overdosing on meds his GP gave him. You're probably dont even know where to get coke or much less have the balls or the money to try it. Drugs my ass. Give the meds back to the doc, so someone who needs them can get them. Idiot.
That's DEXTROamphetamine, and Adderall also has amphetamine in it. And for someone like me, who has most of the symptoms without ever having a diagnosis, it actually does do wonders. About the "unfair advantage" go whine about something more worth-while, if as you say it does nothing more than make your brain run faster then it's not much of an "unfair advantage".
Adderall (or whatever you called it) is a drug. And overdosing is drug abuse, so the school got it right for once.
66, I once had an experience with an overdose on pseudoephedrine, one of the major components of meth. My sister had purchased Sudafed for me for a nasty sinus infection, and I didn't know my mom had told her to get the controlled stuff with the pseudoephedrine in it. A week after the infection, I woke up at 3 AM and started sneezing from my allergies. Facing work in a few hours and desperate to get back to sleep, I took 4 Sudafed and 1 Benadryl. The Sudafed cleared my sinuses, the Benadryl helped me sleep, and all was well. A few hours later, I woke up and took the new allergy med I was starting that day: Allegra D. That also has pseudoephedrine in it. I realized my mistake about an hour later, when my body went into overdrive at work. For several hours, I was jittery, tachycardic, and unable to focus or even sit down. I cleaned the entire office from top to bottom between customers, and talked so quickly people couldn't understand me. I felt like garbage until it wore off, and have been exceedingly careful to never do that again. tl;dr - the feeling meth would give you is bad, I would never drink or take anything that can be described as "legal meth".
