Cindy, I have a slightly overweight, yet insecure teenage son who is taking my doctor prescribed Adderrall without permission, as an appetite suppressant. Is this dangerous?

Cindy, writes:
Abigail, what your son is doing is a lot like playing Russian Roulette. Many factors are taken into account before prescribing a medication, including current condition and past medical history. Your son is depriving himself of these considerations and leaving himself vulnerable to a host of problems, some of which are fatal. He should stop immediately and perhaps even enter treatment.
