Believe it or not, parents give their children medicine. The aim is to make efforts for the children to take the college entrance examination after two months. The problem is that parents dont know that the drug may be a drug. On the market, or in the circle, people secretly call it smart medicine.
Recently, Hu Zhongming, deputy director of psychological correction center of Liangzhu compulsory isolation detoxification center in Zhejiang Province and instructor of Zhejiang Police Officer Vocational College, received three or four parentscounseling on smart drugs; some hospitals in Hangzhou also had parents with children who had taken smart drugs and had abnormal conditions.
Consultations encountered by drug rehabilitation centres:
After taking the medicine, the childs temper is like a powder keg
Almost with Dad
A few days ago, Hu Zhongming rushed to call Qianjiang Evening News reporter, You need to pay attention to this situation - he recently connected to four or five telephone consultation calls, all parents asked whether to take smart medicine for their children.
Most of them are parents of senior high school students. They say that parents are secretly passing this kind of brain-tonic and refreshing medicine to improve their childrens attention in a short time and tirelessly.
This kind of centralized consultation, Hu Zhongming speculates, is related to the approaching college entrance examination. When I finished my class that day, I found that there were four unanswered calls from the same number. Hu Zhongming said that when he called back and chatted, the woman on the other end of the phone burst into tears because she had given her child smart medicine before the college entrance examination last year, and now the child has problems.
The family lives in Hangzhou. Her children are freshmen this year. Last April, the ranking of childrens grades dropped significantly, and the whole family was in a hurry. When they heard about smart medicine, they planned to buy it for a try.
Actually, I was worried about the side effects before I bought the medicine, but some parents around me did the same at that time, fearing that their children would fall behind in their grades, I bought it. After buying the medicine online, the mother went to consult a doctor friend. The doctor friend said that the ingredients were not clearly written on the box, and suggested that the children should not eat it.
But after more than ten years of hard study, close to the college entrance examination, so many people around are eating, At that time, I really cant take care of it.
At first, I took one pill a day for a month, and I didnt make any progress, so I doubled the dose. The child himself said that class was not as tired as before.
Stop taking it immediately after the college entrance examination? Hu Zhongming asked.
Yes, stop right away.
Hu Zhongming said that in fact, this is very dangerous, psychotropic drugs should gradually increase, but also gradually reduce, and finally stop. Because these drugs have side effects, there will be withdrawal symptoms.
The mothers idea is that the medicine must have side effects, once passed the college entrance examination, let the child immediately stop taking the medicine. However, the childs withdrawal reaction came, but the family was not sure if it was caused by drugs.
After drug withdrawal, the childs sleep became very poor, often unable to sleep, until now, a year later, sleep is not good. His temper became like a powder keg, and he got angry every now and then. From then on, he quarreled with his father and almost fought again. Mother was very sorry and worried. She urgently asked Hu Zhongming if there was any way to remedy it.
Children who see sleep problems are also taking smart drugs
Similarly, Xu ou, a doctor in the School Stress Clinic of Hangzhou Seventh Peoples Hospital, has the same concern. He is very worried about the popularity of such so-called smart drugs in the circle of studentsparents.
Xiaokai (alias), a sophomore in a well-known high school in Hangzhou, is a patient of Dr. Xu.
He came to see sleep problems. Xu Ou said Xiaokai is a typical other peoples children, tall and handsome, excellent performance. Junior high school is the private focus of Hangzhou. After entering high school, he felt that he should be top-notch, but high school master Rulin, even if Xiaokai studies hard, his grades are still only high.
Xiao Kai, who refused to accept defeat, did not relax or be discouraged. When we improve our self-demand, we also pay attention to other top students. English and physics are strong points, but Chinese is a bit of a drag, so he will make up for Chinese. Once a classmate asked him questions, he would wonder: Do you want to surpass me? Over time, his sleep became worse and worse, his attention became less and less focused, and his grades fell to a moderate level.
Children take smart medicine recommended by good friends. Friends gave him a link, saying that after taking the medicine, he was in good spirits and his study was not so hard.
Pharmaceutical theory is not expensive. It costs three or five yuan each, but the key explanation is English. Xiao Kai chose three medicines, one for 10 days each, on the recommendation of his second year in an online shop.
Xiao Kai tried for a month, and finally chose the medicine of 3.7 yuan a pill. After eating continuously for a period of time, Xiao Kai was in good condition. Class attention, the face of heavy homework in and out of class will not feel so impatient, grades have also advanced from more than 100 to more than 70. The parents noticed the change of their son and Xiao Kai told them the truth. But the parents did not object, so Xiao Kai continued to eat, and the dose from one to two a day.
But the problem of sleeping could not be solved, so the parents took Xiao Kai to Xu Ou.
Xiao Kais sleep problem is caused by excessive learning pressure, which is not difficult to deal with. The problem is that hes taking this medicine. The child is addicted to it. Xu Gu was shocked to learn.
Smart drugs are central nervous stimulants
The mechanism of action is similar to that of methamphetamine.
Xiao Kai is an American health product called FOCUS+, which has a large online turnover. The ingredients are guarana, cola, purslane, ginkgo, rhodiola and other extracts, which belong to nerve stimulants. The effect of long-term use on the nervous system has not been scientifically tested, let alone so many kinds of combination. Xu Gu said, This kind of nerve-stimulating health care products may be effective in the short term if they reach a certain dose or maintain a certain period of time, but ultimately will cause brain organic changes, which will bring about devastating damage to brain functions such as intelligence, memory, logical reasoning and so on.
The smart medicine mentioned by Hu Zhongmings parents is more complex and lethal than Xiaokais health products.
The so-calledsmart medicinedoes not really mention IQ, but helps to concentrate on something for a long time without feeling tired, and improves work efficiency and results. Hu Zhongming said that the smart drugs currently circulating in parents and studentscircles are not only the health care products of Xiaokai, but also the Ritalin and Concentrated Da. The main components of these drugs are methylphenidate, a central nervous system stimulant, which can promote the release of dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain. These substances are directly related to ones own self. Control and attention are related. It is mainly used in psychiatry to treat childrens attention deficit syndrome.
In particular, it should be noted that the drugs containing methylphenidate have long been listed in the first category of psychotropic drugs for strict management by the state. Their mechanism of action is similar to that of amphetamine, i.e. methamphetamine, which we often call methamphetamine. Their chemical structure and composition are similar, and they are extremely addictive. However, compared with methamphetamine, the effect of Ritalin is slightly weaker, but long-term, high-dose use will produce addiction.
The mother who cried to Hu Zhongming stopped taking drugs immediately after the college entrance examination. Her child was in a bad state of mind. Apart from being interested in drug-seeking behavior, many other things could not bring up her spirit. That was the problem of addiction in drug acute detoxification.
Hu Zhongming also told Qianjiang Evening News that, according to the information disclosed by his parents, most of these smart drugs are Rui version or Ba version of Ritalin purchased by foreign agents. The corresponding drug in China is sustained-release tablets. After taking them in the morning, the drug will release slowly in a day, and the effect of the drug is relatively mild. Ritalin is not a sustained-release tablet in foreign countries. It has a short half-life. It is easy to use it repeatedly in a day and is more addictive. Therefore, it is very dangerous to take drugs without the guidance of a psychiatrist: And some of the smuggled drugs purchased abroad may have new drug ingredients. Many children used to be addicted to games, but now they are addicted to drugs, which is more terrible than the latter. The pressure of learning is great, and the relief of learning pressure depends ultimately on good sleep, the right way to relax, reasonable self-awareness and other dimensions to solve. Xu Ou said.
