The Dangerous Effects Of The Hyper Focus Drug

The Dangerous Effects Of The Hyper Focus Drug


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 performance. 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? Let me know in the comment section below. We’re taking suggestions for future videos. Curious to know how dangerous and addictive
sugar really is? Check out this video! 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 ones. As always, my name is Blocko, this has been

  1. I take Adderall because I legitimately need it, but I don't take it unless I go to work that day. It is, in a sense, a performance enhancing drug. If I didn't take it, my performance world plummet and I'd probably get fired. The trade off is that my personality is dulled, so I'm very quiet.

  2. could you make a video on antipsychotics. like quetiapine(Seroquel) or risperidone, that would be very awesome if you could do that

  3. I have adhd and my parents force me to take adderall because they want me to get better grades but I’ve started to notice that when it wears off I feel more calm, relaxed, happy, and a ton less anxious and stressed. I’m also better at making decisions and completing tasks when it wears off as well sometimes. I don’t know what to think of it. Is this normal?

    P.S. Wrote this comment while adderall was worn off, if that’s of any importance.

  4. I was prescribed adderrall for adhd when I was 6 i took it right for awhile when i got older I took it sometimes it made me smaller I couldn't gain any weight because I didn't have an appetite it made me have a very high heart rate and a high risk for heart attack and i couldnt sleep at night I started smoking weed when I was 14 it was the best decision I got an appetite I could sleep well and it helped me calm down enough to be able to focus enough at least lol I'm 17 now and that's all I do and I've gained a lot of weight and grown a lot and realized that just self medicating is a lot better for my health than the doctors chose In this case

  5. I have adhd BUT I don’t take pills I’m thinking of taking a tiny bit for exams? Is that okay

  6. Jeez blocko i gotta take my meds now im scared
