its an amphetamine.

speed.

its banned the same reason coke and meth are.

unlike coffee or b-12 "energy" drinks, it is most likely banned because of potential for abuse and long term detrimental effects (coke or meth will help keep you up and study as well, but lives are ruined once addicted),

Well, there's no caffeine in Gatorade (just sugar)...but adderall is obviously a stronger stimulant than coffee. I can see it from the doctors perspective. It's basically like being coked up.

And Tony, read the article I posted. The doctor quoted there seems to believe that it could actually enhance physical performance as well.

Well yeah its a narcotic, I'm just saying I don't think it really enhances your football playing abilities, if anything id take a few percocet before the game so it doesnt hurt so much when I got hit.

Past chairman of the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Prohibited List Committee seems to disagree with that sentiment.

And percocet would just be horrible to take before anything that involved physical activity lol. It might not hurt much, but you aren't going anywhere very quickly either.

no doubt. im sure lawrence taylors performance was enhanced when he was coked up on the field.

and im sure everyone has heard of the people all twacked out on PCP or meth, who get shot multiple times by cops, but still keep coming like zombies.

wes saunders was full of shit when he blamed his use on ADHD.

he was using it recreationally. its the new thing just like sizzurp "purple drank" was a few years ago.

most of these atheletes are full of shit when getting popped for it.

joe hayden is the only one ive heard so far (sirius radio- "Blitz" w/ adam shein) who owned up and said he was using it to help stay awake during meetings and get that extra lift.

Adderall is speed. It's usually in a time-release formula. Players and addicts crush it for instant and greater punch.
