Bobby Moran My Topic: Why do adolescents abuse adderall Source One- Weight loss and adderall Raymond, Joan. "The "new" diet pills." Health 21.3 (Apr. 2007): 85-86. Academic Search Premier . EBSCO. [Library name], [City], [State abbreviation]. 29 October 2007. <http://silk.library.umass.edu:2048/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx? direct=true&db=aph&AN=24533886&site=ehost-live&scope=site>. This article describes how people use adderall and other drugs as a form of a weight loss pill. It is one of the abuses of adderall. Although this article uses a middle aged women as the subject, many young adolescents are using the drug to curb weight and look skinny. It also gives information on how they got the pills by “borrowing it from a friend” which many adolescents do. The article also describes how Doctors are frustrated with FDA approval of so many weight loss pills that they are happy to prescribe medications used to treat other disorders to help curb weight loss. Then it tells that the risks aren’t worth the benefits of taking adderall for weight loss and that by self medicating “you could set yourself up for a deadly electrolyte imbalance or nutritional deficiencies. It also describes the side effects include Insomnia, chest pain, and can become a habit.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
