I came across the use of amphetamine when read about narcolepxy. It is used to keep narcoleptic awake by manipulating the receptor-hormone interaction. Yet, i found that it is also used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity. And also, i was found that this is done by helping those hyperactive to be able to concentrate. It seems to me that the latter effect is somehow contradict with the previous one. I am curious of knowing the mechanism behind it. thanks...
