We live in an age where more and more kids seem to have ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), which makes them restless and inattentive in class. Nearly one in five high school age boys in the United States and 11% of school-age children over all have received a medical diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, according to new data from the CDC.
Instead of just wringing their hands and letting these kids fail, some physicians are giving them a dose of some powerful medicine: Adderall. This drug increases the amount of dopamine in the brain, and can be addictive. It’s commercially available and legal ONLY in the US.
