Students depict prescribed medication’s abuse culture at Syracuse University

by James M. Health & Medical industry in USA

It was Alicia Rivera's first semester at University, and she had three final exams. She was dazed because of exams. Her flat mate offered to take Adderall, which is specially used for study purpose but medically prescribed for the treatment of ADHD.

Rivera, who was not recommended, she took two tablets that morning and after that another before her second exam, she got tablets from a boy sitting beside her, in class. She didn’t have any information about him or about dosage he gave her. She later portrayed the medication's side effects.

"I was sweating slugs, my hands were trembling, my heartbeat was fast as compare to the normal routine," Rivera reviewed. "At a point, I was worried that these feelings were not going toward an end." 

After 18 hours, she was able to sleep and get normal. She was actually surprised by this experience.

Rivera isn't the only one. The study tells us that 12% of the college students already use this sort of medication for study purpose without any prescription.

Medication abuse is demarcated as taking an endorsed medicine without a remedy, amphetamine is specially used in the ADHD treatment but in case of college students, they take it without any specialists’ prescription.

Basic brands like Adderall, Ritalin, and Vyvanse, and measurements for those medications can run from 5 milligrams to 70 milligrams or more. Students take these medications to remain focused and concentrated.

A general health teacher Dessa Bergen-Cico at SU said she supposes that drug abusing student’s number is greater than DEA reported. Each semester, she asked students to raise their hands if they are taking Adderall, and the same number of students raised their hands and almost 50% students are used Adderall without prescription. 

"It's crazy," she said. "This is how students make efforts to maintain the things with medicines.”

College students comparatively more than the non-college student. The second most prominent medicine is Ritalin, 2.4% students use this medicine to achieve the target.

Peggy Compton said, “if you’re a college or university student then, there is stimulant addiction chances are very high.” She also added that “this drug abusing is becoming the “normative” issues among the students. Students with the drug history, addictions and depression are more at risk, than other. 

And, Bergen-Cico agreed that taking medicine during the study is not a new thing, as, in the 1980s, students were used to NoDoz, for exams and study purpose.  

After a year, her kid also told her about the students’ end after taking Adderall tablets.

"Individuals are taking whatever they can get their hands on keeping in mind the end goal to remain conscious and complete their work, without understanding the full impacts of the medication," If you want to buy adderall 30mg online without prescription from health pharmacy. visit the above link
