I only use to keep my weight down- HOW IS IT HURTING ANYONE?

Amphetamines It is true physicians have prescribed amphetamines for purposes such as appetite control in weight loss programs, narcolepsy, and hyperactivity disorders. Under a physician’s direction they do have their place. It is also a fact that amphetamines were once used in inhalers for allergies and asthma, but this practice was banned because of the toxic effects of amphetamines.

Prescription amphetamines produce pleasurable, elevating effects that make them drugs of choice for many people. They produce increased mental and physical energy and mild to moderate euphoria. Tolerance to amphetamines develops rapidly, which means that more of the drug is needed to get the same effect, and amphetamine abuse takes place. Since prescription amphetamines can be swallowed in tablet form or injected, the increase risk factors of infectious disease can occur.
