No, methamphetamines are abused drugs and I have never heard of them being perscribed for add/adhd. The treatments for add/adha are amphetamines and are similar to methamphetamines, but not exactly. Are you sure that is what your prescribed? What is the drugs name?
i am not prescribed methamphetamine. while yes methamphetamine is highly addictive and highly abused. IT CAN BE PRESCRIBED FOR ADHD AND WEIGHTLOSS. Meth is a schedule 2 drug which means that it has a HIGH POTENTIAL FOR ABUSE but HAS MEDICAL USES. I dont believe it is used much at all but it is out there under the brand name of DESOXYN. i was curious if anyone out there was taking it. cocaine is schedule 2 as well. They can be prescribed. Cocaine not for adhd its used as a numbing agent for thinks like nose and throat surgeries. So i was just curious if anyone has a prescription for it. No you dont smoke it you take it orally
