When I started on meds — Dexamphetamine — my wife objected.
She insisted that I talk to a school principal we knew, and a psychiatrist friend of ours. They knew nothing useful.
My doctor told me that I would be a safer driver when using the meds. My work productivity improved a lot. With some work, my output was doubled.
I am not addicted. I never have been addicted to anything. I have to set reminder alarms to take a pill!
