How does adderall work?
Basically by making your dopamine and your brain receptors fuck. For an extended period of time. You see, it’s not just the amphetamines — it totally is the amphetamines — that make you able to study for hours.
It’s that sometimes when our dopamine levels are low, we seek out things that provide us pleasure (read: distractions, because basically anything is better than doing work). Amphetamine molecules flood the brain with dopamine, keeping you satisfied and complacent while you read, read read.
Also, today I learned that American, British, German and Japanese soldiers were all hopped up on amphetamines during World War II. No wonder it was so awesome!
