Greg Case Study Video Transcript
Off Camera: Hi, nice to meet you.
Greg: Hi, uh, doc.
Off Camera: How can I help you today?
Greg: Well I need some Dexedrine for my ADHD.
Off Camera: Uh-huh, have you been prescribed Dexedrine in the past?
Greg: Since I was little, but Iâ€™ve been off it for a while. I need to get back to it.
Off Camera: What kind of difficulties are you having?
Greg: Uh, poor concentration, poor focusing, getting distracted, forgetting things, Iâ€™ve been feeling hyper all the time. I just, I canâ€™t sit still. But when I was on Dexedrine, it worked great though.
Off Camera: Are all of these difficulties you had previously?
Greg: Since I was five or six. I was always out of control, driving my parents up the wall.
Off Camera: Mm-hmm, how did the medications help?
Greg: Well, it controlled it all. Um, all the symptoms vanished.
Off Camera: Did you have any side effects?
Greg: No, no, no side effects.
Off Camera: Such as decrease in your appetite?
Greg: No, I donâ€™t think so.
Off Camera: Uh-huh, trouble going to sleep?
Greg: No, I sleep well. Yeah, sleepâ€™s good.
Off Camera: I mean, um, sleep difficulties when you took medications for ADHD.
Greg: Oh no, no, I slept good, too.
Off Camera: Mm-hmm, what age did you start the medications?
Greg: Five or six.
Off Camera: So you were very young.
Greg: I donâ€™t know, I donâ€™t know what age children normally start. Is five or six young?
Off Camera: Uh-huh, fairly young. But children that age sometimes are started on medications. And did you try any other ADHD medications, other than the Dexedrine?
Greg: No, no, Dexedrine worked really good, so I just, I stuck with that.
Off Camera: And when did you stop taking it?
Greg: About a year ago, yeah a year.
Off Camera: What did you notice after you stopped taking the medication?
Greg: Well all my symptoms just, they came right back.
Off Camera: Did that impact your studies here at the university?
Greg: A lot, actually.
Off Camera: How are your grades?
Greg: Theyâ€™re terrible. Um, Iâ€™m getting Bâ€™s and Câ€™s, and I really need to be getting Aâ€™s, at the very least Bâ€™s.
Off Camera: What made you decide to come in at this very moment in time to restart the medication?
Greg: Iâ€™m just, Iâ€™m struggling. And um, I wanna get back on track. Iâ€™m tired of not doing well.
Off Camera: Do you have any friends taking ADHD medications?
Greg: I mean, half the campus is on some kind of medication. I donâ€™t know if thatâ€™sgood, or if itâ€™s bad, but I donâ€™t know, I just know it works for me.
Off Camera: Would we be able to get you to sign a release so we can get your old medical records?
Greg: I have to ask my parents, um, cuz I think the doctor I actually used to go to died, or moved.
Off Camera: Uh-huh, what was your doctorâ€™s name?
Greg: The doctor who prescribed the Dexedrine?
Off Camera: Yeah, uh-huh.
Greg: He wasnâ€™t like my family physician. He was a child specialist, like a shrink that my mom brought in. Iâ€™d have to ask my mom.
Off Camera: Uh, could you do that? Uh, ask your mother and then sign a release so we can get your records? Itâ€™d be really helpful.
Greg: My mother and I arenâ€™t really seeing eye-to-eye on anything right now.
Off Camera: Oh.
Greg: So if I could not have to involve her, Iâ€™d rather do that.
Off Camera: Uh-huh, well do you remember the name of the clinic? Then we could maybe track your records that way.
Greg: This is exactly what I need Dexedrine for! I canâ€™t remember shit. Iâ€™m, sorry, is there any way that I could maybe do like a trial of Dexedrine? That way you could see if I have any symptoms. I know Iâ€™m not going to, but you know, for your sake. Um, I would know, you would know, you know, could we do something along those lines?
