I work at my high school. I recently found some adderall in a classroom that I guess a student had left/forgotten. Anyways, there were two of the little tablets and they were 10mg. I've heard a lot about what it does, I've never done it so I thought to myself, "why not"... I wanted to see what it was like.
From what I've heard about it is that it makes you think much quicker, it's good for studying, and basically turns you into some superhuman learning machine. That kinda intrigues me.
I did a bit of reading up on it to see it's effects, and some side effects were dry mouth, loss of appetite, etc.
So I took the two pills I found, and I'm just wondering... does it actually do anything? I guess I don't know what I was expecting, something like a magical lightbulb to go off and suddenly I'd become a mental superman. I felt the same (I think). I DID get the dry mouth thing, and I had the empty feeling in my stomach (knowing I hadn't eaten anything all day), but didn't feel a desire to eat... and then suddenly many hours later I got REALLY hungry (maybe the effects wore off)?
My question is: how much does adderall actually work? I feel like it's kinda a placebo. Perhaps it really didn't do anything and I just imagined the stuff happening because I had read about it? I mean I felt/acted completely the same as I always would. I was working on physics, and I didn't particularly feel some magic understanding awaken inside me - I just felt normal. Is this normal? Is this blog stupid?
What are your guys' experience? It was sorta interesting for me in that I did feel the dry mouth thing going on, but other than that I felt kinda the same...
