You could argue that his brilliant dancing was a kind of hyperfocus. That being the case he might have had great difficulty accessing it. His reported severe insomnia would fit in too.

Aminorex? You can't even get that by prescription. It was only available in Europe and taken off the market in '72. So he must've gotten that off the street.

Re: Michael Jackson took Desoxyn

I dont think he had ADHD. I think he was taking stimulants to counter the next morning hangover effects of the tranquilizers and sedatives he was taking.

Plus talking 4 different types of stimulants does not show that ADHD treatment is what he is after. More of a high.

Re: Michael Jackson took Desoxyn

Yup. That's what killed many people in the 1960's and 70's: Brian Epstein, manager of The Beatles; Jimi Hendrix, due to some stronger-than-expected German sleeping pills; eventually Johnny Cash, who was up to 500mg/day of Dexedrine at one point around 1966; Jack Kerouac; Judy Garland, Bryan Jones, and more. Elvis felt he was a pharmacologist and used the PDR like a Kelley Blue Book. They all needed energy to stay awake either to drive safely, perform more than was naturally possible. For example, The Beatles played 7 hour sets ever day in Hamburg...aided by Dexedrine and Preludin. Without that practice they may never have become what we know them for today, to those familiar with the "10,000 hour rule". They were an exception to the rule. Many couldn't handle it.

Historians believe Hitler's use of stimulants made him overconfident, believing he could invade Russia. That didn't work out very well, thank God. He even slept in on D-Day because of his medication, ordering others "do not disturb."

Anytime someone who is highly powerful and controls the livelihood of those closest to them has a major problem, getting them help becomes difficult.

He wouldn't be resting if he wasn't on any drugs.

Re: Michael Jackson took Desoxyn

Michael Jackson took Desoxyn

I don't think this will be what he's remembered by.
..........although, meth is starting to be remembered by hitler.


stimulants explain things better than downers....
....he looked peppy

Re: Michael Jackson took Desoxyn

He is one of the greatest singers and dancers of all times. he has a category of his own.

I dont think that he did what people sued him for.

He felt let down and betrayed by the law suits from people whose main goal is money. All of them settled out of courts for financial compensation.

If my child gets molested, I wont settle unless I see this person in jail. no money in the world would make it even for me.

Do I want to live and buy houses, and yachts.....with my child's molester money?? If I do take his money, does that make me me a parent who sold his kid? The only difference is i got paid after. The ones who didn't settle because they thought that they can get more if hey was found guilty. They were asking form money not jail time or justice. even so he got acquitted.

he felt let down by these people's action. People only remember the bad things claimed against him. Forgotten that he changed the map of the music scene.

He escaped, went to Bahrain and Dubai. But still stigma followed him and he couldn't just hide.

And he went to drugs thinking that would ease his pain and sadly he was mistaken. As a result he died trying to escape reality when he escaped it permanently.

Re: Michael Jackson took Desoxyn

I think he was taking drugs looong before going to Dubai.

Still surprises me that the word "Scientology" isn't mentioned more when talking about his alleged child molesting - sounds amazing like their usual dirty tricks:

"Hey Ms Presley, try and get Michael into an Org. What's that, he's not interested and wants to keep hold of all his money? Then he is an enemy and must be suppressed by any means. Mwahahahaha.....".

I could just be paranoid of course!

Re: Michael Jackson took Desoxyn

As I said who gives a sh*t whether he was on drugs or not, it's his business and to me he was the King of Pop and if you look into it he was referred to as that in the musical sense.

Re: Michael Jackson took Desoxyn

...actually he specifically insisted that he was referred to as that and declined to deal with anyone who refused.

What anybody says on this board will not affect how he rests. It does, however, obviously affect you. I would suggest just allowing people who want to have a conversation just get on with it. It's sad that he's dead (to some people) but that doesn't mean we can't discuss his circumstances.
