Adderall for Studying and Lectures

How effective is this stuff? I've heard stories of academics taking several adderall pills per day. I had a brief stint in college a few years ago, and the reason I believe I did poorly in one of my classes was because I would often lose focus. The professor would be discussing a topic for 20 minutes, and I would start thinking about something else 5 minutes in, and then regaining my focus 2 minutes later, being completely lost. Studying at home would remedy this, but would adderall also improve my studying, making my time more worth while? To me, and I don't know if this is true, the more you focus on a subject, the more connections you make, and the better you understand it and remember it.

    textbook adhd or even early cognitive decline, I would suggest you go into an easier field of study instead of coping with drugs.

      I literally got through algebra, trigonometry, calc 1, and calc 2 in just a couple months before I burned out and got bored. I believe I'm destined for some field in STEM. It's just been a while since I've gone to university. I was there only part time and only for a couple semesters.

        Dude, drugs aren't going to make you better they will just frick you up more in the future. Just learn healthy coping skills like working out, going on walks, and meditation. If you stugle to focus and youve made it through all these classes take a break and try to revelauate things.

          Drugs fricking work. You just don't want to take them frequently enough for them to actually frick up your brain. ALL drugs that change brain chemistry will do this. Now, if adderall could give me a massive boost in life, then it would be worth keeping around. I just wouldn't take it every day.

            It gives a massive boost for a day or two, but pushes you below baseline for 3 more

              Tons of people with ADHD take it daily with no issue, and it always works for them. I just figure I wouldn't want to take it on a daily basis to avoid gaining any significant tolerance to it.

                I have experience with stimulants. They help you focus immensely. I'm certain adderall would help me get through lectures without losing focus and begin thinking about things that have nothing to do with class. I remember teachers getting pissed off at me because they noticed that I lost focus during class and would ask me stupid questions. Teachers in primary and secondary school do this all the time, but they often single out students they perceive as not paying attention.

      This is a topic about drugs and their effect on the brain and body. It's a STEM topic. There are studies on this.

      have a nice day.

      IST used to be dominated by threads about school, and I remember having tons of successful threads about school-related topics years ago. Through many years, IST has literally been established as the go-to board for such threads, and the anons on there are definitely the most likely to actually reply to you with valuable advice than on other boards.

    Consider that it's a medication for those with ADHD. Though potentially over-diagnosed, the drug is made to "correct" a fundamental difference in the patients neurochemistry.

    Also consider that your lack of focus isn't necessarily ADHD induced, and you could just have garden variety tiktok zoomer brain. If it's in fact the latter, the easiest thing to do is just figure out how to manage your focus more effectively and dialing back on the dopamine roller coaster that modern society offers. Go to /adv/ if you need more than this.

      I'm also a fitness nut, and it was very noticeable that my attention was severely compromised after having a hard leg day today. I've done cocaine before, and I instantly noticed how I was able to hyperfocus on things. I'm not a druggie. Cocaine is bad for multiple reasons, but I'm open to having a little fun sometimes. I don't want to ruin my cardiovascular health which I work so hard to strengthen.

        Go get diagnosed then. If you've got 80HD, then you have your problem solved. If not, you know that it's not that difficult to get your shit together. Wrong board for further discussion.

    Anyone know of a source for ADHD medication? Anything from adderall to strattera. Assume that cost is not an issue.

      If you're still following this thread, then you can get them off dark net markets. You'll get ripped off big time trying to buy them locally, and you're way more likely to get something cut with cheap speed or meth through buying from some slimy low-level drug dealer. Even if you get the real stuff locally, you'll likely end up paying way more per pill than you would if you had just bought off the dark net market. Many low and mid-level drug dealers buy through dark net markets from mid and high-level drug dealers.

        Are you speaking from expirience? Never bought from DW but I assume all the pills are just meth from what drugfeel says about them

          >Are you speaking from expirience?
          Yes. Dark net markets are the best and safest option for buying drugs. They are well managed, and tons of people do big business on them. For example, if someone is selling product laced with fentanyl, they will get taken off the market. If you're serious about making money on DNMs, you won't lie on them. I've seen someone listing coke that looked a little funny, and he stated honestly that he got it cut. They hate fentanyl on DNMs, so it's expected of vendors to test their own products, but you should always do fentanyl strip tests yourself. If you want some indirect proof that people will be taken off for doing BS, then also consider that many of the top buyers are mid-level drug dealers, and they contribute a lot towards the profits of the markets. If you want to learn more, visit Dread through one of the onion links listed on dark (DOOT) fail.

            Good perspective, thanks for sharing. I know theres real drugs, just never sure of what Id get. I was going to find some kind of pressed amph for Adhd^ purposes but just went the legit way.

        This is because of the dopamine boost these stimulants result in. You enjoy doing whatever you're doing, and you want to continue doing it, rather than trying to latch onto something else to focus on to increase your dopamine.

I'm not an expert, but this is just from some reading. I've experienced being able to hyperfocus on cocaine. Cocaine's effect is so massive, that if you're really drunk, cocaine will effectively result in a very noticeable massive jump in IQ. It's large enough, that you can still read about and understand high-level topics while simultaneously being really drunk.

    Are you just some Pakistani kid who is obsessed with "studying" because your parents are buttholes?

    Taking more pills doesnt make you smarter. Taking pills is not going to gaurentee that you get any better grades. The fact that you were even aware that you could lose focus, and refocus, tells me you dont have ADHD at all. I think if you got them, you'd just be the exact same and honestly probably dumber.

    If you can focus enough to take a college class or study, you genuinely wont even feel a difference when you take the pill, you already are "stimulanted" enough to work on stuff. I don't take it when I know I'm capable of doing something, it would just make me really tired and less thoughtful. It would make you dumber because it limits your thoughts, ADHD, and you would just be a drone copying down things without retaining them.
