Presumably there’s been many deaths from people who have abused amphetamine. But as far as I know it’s very rare for anyone to die from taking them as prescribed and at clinical doses. The only cases of people dying that I’ve read about relate to patients that had a genetic heart murmur of some sort, and as I said, I think it’s only been a very small number of deaths. They must be pretty safe if they give them to kids as young as 5! I had no end of trouble trying to find a GP that would prescribe me any sort of stimulant. Which country do you live in? If you’re in the UK then I can probably give you some help in how to go about getting the right treatment and medicine.
