A stimulant prescribed to treat children with hyperactivity and attention-deficit disorder (ADHD) and occasionally prescribed for treating narcolepsy. It's also used in combination with heroin, cocaine or both to produce a potent euphoria. Teens most often crush the tablet and inhale the drug or take the tablet orally. Some users dissolve the tablets in water and inject the mixture into their blood stream, which can easily cause blockage of small blood vessels, which can quickly lead to a stroke or death.
