Sleep Schedule Interfering With Student’s Adderall Use
Local architecture major Rasmus Schlooter has found himself having to put aside his Adderall use after falling back into the pits of a crippling sleep addiction.
“I wish I could quit, but I haven’t been able to handle daily life without it,” Schlooter says. “At this point I get maybe only 1 or 2 good Adderall kicks a week at most.”
Acquaintances of Schlooter have noticed a change in their friend’s lifestyle ever since his latest relapse.
“He’s throwing his life away,” says Schlooter’s friend, Nathan Cremers. “He locks himself in his room for 8 hours a day doing nothing but sleeping.”
Schlooter says his latest relapse came about due to falling back in with the wrong crowd.
“I met up with some old friends I hadn’t seen in years,” Schlooter says. “One thing led to another, and we ended up having a sleepover.”
Schlooter admits he has a problem but worries there may be no help for him at this point.
“If I don’t kick this addiction soon, I may never use Adderall again,” he says forlornly.
