ADHD Drugs BAD for Healthy College Students

  Neuroscience researchers at Brown U and URI found that healthy students taking 30 mg of Adderall daily did improve in attention and focus (as expected in those taking a stimulant) but that effect failed to translate to enhanced performance on a battery of neurocognitive tasks that measured reading comprehension and fluency as well as short-term memory.
  The investigators concluded that not only are individuals taking stimulants not benefitting from it academically but in fact they could be negatively affecting their performance.
