People that want to stop Adderall cannot because of the feeling that it gives them, and the cravings their bodies get. When they stop, they can start to get jittery, and then take more Adderall than recommended, and get addicted quickly by doing this. Then they run out of their prescription, and need that same feeling. The patients then get cocaine, and sometimes meth because they both give the same effect on their minds and bodies as Adderall did. As they start to overdose on these drugs, signs of increasing body temperature, convulsions and hallucinations will be shown (Drug Fact Sheet).

Some mothers are not ready for this job, yet selfishly still choose to keep their children because they are too proud to allow someone else provide their baby with the life they deserve.

As part of her treatment plan, Ms. K was put on sertraline (Zoloft), which is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). SSRIs are associated with suicidal ideation (SI) in adolescents as it thought they causes irritation, agitation, and impulsiveness (Stuart 699). The only SSRI that is approved for adolescents with depression is fluoxetine; signs of SI should still be monitored as antidepressants in general can increase the risk for SI. Since the patient was admitted for SI she is especially at risk for this side effect. Ms. K’s sertraline medication was discontinued and she was placed on bupropion which inhibits reuptake of the neurotransmitter dopamine.

Although her mother did not recommend going to the doctor directly, she encouraged the suggestion, resulting in Allie’s doctor’s appointment.
