Adderall suppresses all spontaneous behavior. In healthy chimpanzees and other animals, this can be measured with precision as a reduction in all spontaneous or self-generated activities. In animals and in humans, this is manifested in a reduction in,
(1) exploration and curiosity;
(2) socializing, and
BUT, you ability to interact socially is essentially gone. GONE!!! Sentances or thoughts that flew out of your mouth before will be like trying to put a sentance together with two hands and a flashlight!
Adderall stifling creativity?! Hello?! "Amphetamines gave me a quickness of thought and writing that was at least three times my normal rhythm," Sartre, once remarked. When people write on the drug, it is like they have a choir of angels sitting on their shoulders. Lots of talented people like Auden and Kerouac have taken amphetamines precisely because they find them inspiring. Kerouac and the Beats ingested the drug in such heroic quantities that it didn't just make them more focused, it completely transformed their writing. According to legend, "On the Road" was drafted in a 120-foot-long single-spaced paragraph that burbled down a single continuous scroll of paper.
Unlike steroids Adderall has no long-term health consequences. Provided that is not snorted, injected, or taken in excessive amounts, it's not addictive.
