User :   I have never been more on task, concentrated, or positive about my work load... usually I can't concentrate on getting anything done and I'm always worrying
User :   the adderall really helped me

Doctor :   you should not take any medications on your own
User :   I know
User :   anything else?
Doctor :   you need to stop this medication immediately

User :   but I"m not a junkie
