Some teens even think a prescription drug, regardless of whom it was prescribed to be safer than an ordinary street drug. Cynthia may take her brother’s ADHD medicine to curb her appetite because she had been told how bad diet pills could be. Cynthia thought the ADHD drug would be safer. After all, it was prescribed by a doctor for her brother - - but not for her - - and not for the condition in which she is taking the ADHD drug.
