My sophomore year of high school I discovered my brother's ADHD medication, Adderal. My first experiences with Adderal were pure satisfaction. Take enough of the drug and you will sit in one spot for 8 hours talking your head off and it will feel as if it was only one hour....   [tags: Cause and Effect, Hallucinations, ]
