2. "Medical experts" don't blood test you or take brain images. They give you a survey and if you're in a certain range, you get amphetamines. If you go back and tell them, "it seemed to be working a bit, but still am not all the way there", they'll give you more. If you go back and say, "I'm way too hyped up, I can't concentrate", they'll lower your dose or change you to a different drug.
1) You're also mildly retarded.
2) A trained, ethical medical professional will only prescribe stimulants if you have a condition that warrants their usage, and even then, will pick from a variety of possible drugs based on your own personal circumstances. They have the knowledge/wherewithal to assist you if you're "not all the way there" or "way too hyped up."

Or you can not be condescending and judgemental, look to the multitudes of people who use it w/o a script that it helps, and maybe conclude that it 'melting your brain' isn't the norm.
Long-term amphetamine usage can have dire consequences. Multitudes of people do multitudes of stupid things. You cannot deny the fact that for an FDA-approved drug, Adderall has an extremely high rate of negative side effects. But if you want to take the risk, that's your prerogative.
