  • adderall vyvanse junkie

    so… those adderall/dexies pills and even now vyvanse ( and even some other colorful pills on the market like various xanax generics) could actually be causing the very thing they are supposedly treating? That little blue pill for erectile dysfunction may be fun for the night but could most likely attribute to headaches next morning due to that blue artificial dye.

    This is very disturbing news indeed.

    Long live Michael Greger M.D.
