Women and Prescription Drug Abuse

Women have been abusing prescription drugs throughout the years to help them deal with stress, frustration and anxiety compounded with the responsibilities of being a mom, wife and career woman. ABC News says that in the past decade there has been a 750 percent increase in the use of Adderall (a drug for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) among women 26 to 39, and not all of these women have the ADHD. Adderall can give you a huge boost of energy, allowing you to get a ton of tasks done while still smiling as serenely as a Stepford wife.
