    This type of stuff is obviously prescribed for people with ADD or ADHD. I read somewhere that says people with these conditions are often more creative (I forget the reason why) Now I might be getting a script for this stuff cause I guess my doctor feels I have this condition. My question for you guys is do any of you feel this stuff has a negative impact on your creativity when it comes to music or writing or whatever you guys do for fun???

    as long as you take it as prescribed you should be fine, a vast majority of people who do get no negative side effects. however it is possible to experience depression, loss of appetite, and any other side effects you may get from any upper.

    some intresting reads:

    do some more research, and find out if it's right for you. as for the "creative" side effects the only way to find out is to try it... sorry.

    I think your creativity will be somewhat affected because I believe that using amphetamines or ritalin relieves only the symptoms of ADHD (and especially the symptoms that irritate your environment) and creativity is in most cases a symptom of ADHD.
