You're in your thirties, and although you've had reasonable success running your own business, you've always believed that you were lazy and unmotivated. You recently got diagnosed with ADHD and prescribed Adderall, and everything changed for the better. You're finally a hard worker, don't get distracted easily, and finish things you start. It's been a huge lifesaver and a huge boost to your self-confidence.

After hearing Jordan talk about his negative experiences with Adderall in high school on the Darren Prince episode, it got you concerned.

Your brother has been using Adderall for years, and said something that worried you. While on vacation, he lost his prescription and felt the need to find a doctor who could write him an emergency prescription. He regularly has to restrict towards the end of the month to make sure he doesn't run out, which signals he's taking extra doses.

Should you be concerned for your brother getting addicted?

Are you at risk of becoming dependent if you stay on it for years?

We'll talk about this and much more on this latest episode of Feedback Friday!
