Adderall Part of the Evolving Amphetamine Abuse
SAN FRANCISCO, April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Wellcorps International, one of the nation's leading social, health and environmental advocacy groups, today released a major paper on the history and evolution of amphetamine and anti-depressant use in America. The paper can be found in its entirety at http://www.wellcorps.com.
Authored by Wellcorps Founder and President Tony Rich and clinical medical anthropologist Meg Jordan, PhD, RN, the paper delineates the history and widespread, medically-prescribed use of amphetamines by Americans and offers alternative, holistic approaches to kick starting the brain.
"From 1935, when Benzedrine Sulfate first appeared to entice doctors to prescribe amphetamines to housebound women tired of their daily drudgery; to the chemical manipulation and rebranding of it into the fastest selling drugs to children and young adults, the history, evolution and morphology of amphetamine use in America is disturbing and eye-opening," said Rich.
