Your PDR Moment of the Day

I don’t expect Max knows or cares enough to track down a copy of the PDR but for his edification (and ours) this is what branded ADDERALL® (mixed salts of a single-entity amphetamine product) looks looked like:


I say “looked” because its manufacturer divested itself of ADDERALL in 2007 “and no longer owns, manufactures, or distributes ADDERALL or any of its generic forms.” The manufacturer still produces an extended-release form of ADDERALL but it’s in capsule form.


So any non-extended release form of ADDERALL being currently sold in the US is a generic.

I also expect that Max is unaware of the side effects, adverse reactions and drug/drug interactions of ADDERALL so he won’t know to fake, oh say, dry mouth, blurred vision or changes in libido. Psychotic episodes, on the other hand, may just come naturally to him.

    I hope that the pill is a placebo…
    I believe Bobby is too smart to give Max the real thing…

  2. Bobby”s line in panel one changes everything for me. Bobby is for sure going to dope Max up. He’s studied this whole amateur basketball coaching gig and is going into it with his eyes wide open. You get the players what they want and then you get the players. Bobby’s only surprise is he didn’t think the first time he had to sell his soul would be for a low stakes no-hoper like Max Bacon. Jeez, maybe Malik McCall needs to be steered to the ‘right’ shoe company and he could get in on that action.

  4. What gets me is that I don’t think Adderall would really help bacon’s game. It’s a time release so all it’s going to do is keep him awake after the game. If he really wants to get the full effect he’d have to crush it and take it just before the game.

  5. I’m laughing, wondering how many of us are trying to pretend we have no idea what we’re talking about. Except for my friend Lester here, he’s not hiding it at all.

    Dealers always wear the man-bag, and the dopers usually sport the backpack. Looks like Whigham did his research.

  6. In the interim…
    Max Bacon snorts lines of crushed up Midol in the boy’s room stall.

  7. I am older and I truly have no clue, g. My kids grew up before this became popular. Or maybe I was lucky, just MJ, alcohol & tobacco. So I looked it up—from wiki “The way Adderall XR works is that half of the medication is released instantly, and it lasts for around 4 hours. The second half is then released around that time as it is contained in slower dissolving capsules.”

    So thanks for the heads up, especially about “Dealers always wear the man-bag, and the dopers usually sport the backpack. “

  8. This Adderall thing is all based on the idea that Max has trouble with focus. But as far as I can tell his issues have to do with running out of gas, not focus. But we could not really have Bobby supplying amphetamines. I still think Bobby finds Bacon a pain in the ass for nagging him for drugs and is giving him aspirin and hoping for a placebo effect.
