    I wouldn't think so. It makes your heart beat faster meaning that you can't push yourself harder without running the risk of heart trouble. It also interferes with your concentration and the effects don't really last that long and you quickly build up a tolerance.

    If you were looking at something that lasted longer then you'd go with meth or ordinary amphetamine.
    They say Burt Lancaster has one, but I don't believe them.

    There are footballers playing who have a clinical ADHD diagnosis and take dexamphetamine medication for the purposes of increasing their executive functioning ability. The medication is necessary to help them generally, in life.

    It doesn't assist you physically in any way but your ability to organise and focus go though the roof. It makes you super alert and your brain works quicker. ADHD medication provides and unseen cognitive advantage on the footy field no doubt and this is a topic that has been afforded zero air time.
    But then again, I'm an Internet poster and Bevo is a premiership coach so draw your own conclusions.

    I used amphetamine a lot when I was younger. Melbourne was awash with high quality and relatively cheap speed in the '80s. We'd buy it by the 1/4 ounce, none of this point nonsense.

    But I always used to wonder why my friends would be bouncing off the walls after a taste but I'd be sitting in the corner chain smoking and doing crosswords.

    Then in my mid 50s I was diagnosed as being ADHD and I almost felt the penny drop. I'm medicated nowadays and my life has improved no end.
