Aren't they just the perfect fit for people on the spectrum? I mean, alcohol can act as a 'lubricant', sure, but it can also make one vomit and/or stumble upon the person one wants to talk to.

But entactogens... they were made for people to talk with each other... stimulants alone may go too much in one direction, but entactogens provide the oxytocin to also listen.

Yes when I was on Adderall XR for ADHD it pretty much corrected most of my social deficits. I found I could think of what to say a lot easier and I enjoyed socializing a lot more. I couldn't tolerate the side effects of the drug though like appetite loss, change in taste, or the crashes in mood when it wore off so I stopped taking the drug. I didn't find other amphetamines like Dexedrine, Vyvanse or other stims like Ritalin to have the same effect though, only Adderall.

I would like to try Oxytocin itself. I was in an autism Oxytocin nasal spray drug trial but I think I got the placebo because it didn't do anything.

As far as I've read Adderall is purely stimulant. I haven't tried it myself, so don't know if it might have entactogenic qualities, or perhaps it does in a few people, but as far as I know to have such effects dopaminergic agonists need to be combined with serotonergic ones.
