Ladies, ladies--ease up on the drugs


In the Nov Marie Claire, Joshua Lyon reports on the huge increase in supposedly intelligent female executives banging in the performance enhancing drugs—such as Ritalin, Adderall, Ambien, Xanax, Klonopin, and others.

In this story, this included air traffic ontrollers. Shudder.

This not for a condition such ADHD, but for a competitive edge at work.

Great—the Sixties are over, people!

For one thing, these can show up on drug tests. Is this worth losing everything? You can also develop a tolerance and end up scoring on the street or internet.

Docs—this says—prescribe this stuff more for women because they consider women to be inferior to men at making it the workplace.

Pretty picture? No so much. Try dialing back some obligations--gym, travel, work, partying--something! Sleep more.
