Hey there!
Welcome to Life Noggin!
Did you know that nearly 7 in 10 Americans take prescription drugs?
That's what researchers from Mayo Clinic and the Olmsted Medical Center found after
conducting a recent study.
While prescription medication can certainly help people manage their health, sometimes
people misuse prescription drugs to enhance some part of them, either mentally or physically.
For example, sometimes people take adderall in the hopes that it will boost their mental
But just what exactly is adderall?
Adderall is a prescription drug that's primarily a combo of two drugs: dextroamphetamine and
amphetamine, which belong to a class of drug known as /central nervous system stimulants/.
Adderall can help you out with things like paying attention and staying focused on an
activity, and as such, is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD.
Adderall is also used to help treat narcolepsy — a sleep disorder that can cause you to
be super sleepy during the day and have sudden instances of sleep.
But taking Adderall for non-medical purposes can be dangerous.
According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, taking prescription stimulants for
reasons outside of treating ADHD or narcolepsy could lead to negative effects on your health,
like heart problems or psychosis.
It's also possible to become addicted to Adderall and even overdose on it, so it's
definitely not something to mess around with.
Some students may misuse things like Adderall since they think it can help them get better
grades, but there's not really a lot of evidence to back those claims up.
In fact, research from recent study found that while non-medical use of Adderall may
improve attention ability, it had minimal, or even a negative impact on other cognitive
processes and did not enhance academic performance.
But still, people are misusing Adderall to try and have a mental edge, similarly to athletes
misusing certain medications to enhance their athletic performance.
Like insulin, for example.
Insulin is a hormone that your pancreas makes which allow your cells to use the glucose
in your blood.
But when your body isn't making enough insulin, or using it effectively, man-made insulin
can help control your blood sugar.
Taking insulin can help people with Type 2 Diabetes manage their condition and may or
may not be needed for different people.
However, it's an absolutely necessary part of managing Type 1 Diabetes, with people needing
to take insulin multiple times a day — sometimes even in the middle of the night!
While insulin can literally be a lifesaver for these conditions, sometimes athletes and
bodybuilders misuse it for non-medical purposes to try and increase muscle gains and aid athletic
performance, similarly to why people take steroids.
Using insulin for these purposes is super dangerous, because getting too much insulin
can result in a coma, brain damage, or even /death/ — risks that Diabetics face on a
daily basis as they try and walk the tightrope between high and low blood sugars.
At the end of the day, prescription drugs can help people manage their health when they're
prescribed by a doctor and taken under medical supervision, but you shouldn't be taking
them outside of those guidelines.
It's really not safe!
Are there any other specific drugs you'd like us to talk about next?

Drugs can alter your brain, both in how it works, and it's actual structure, and those
changes be long lasting leading to harmful behaviors, sometimes even self destructive
