Study: ADHD drugs do not improve cognition in healthy college students

KINGSTON, R.I., July 19, 2018 – Contrary to popular belief across college campuses, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) medications may fail to improve cognition in healthy students and actually can impair functioning, according to a study by researchers at the University of Rhode Island and Brown University.

I was given a ADHD drug in high school for over a year then college when I became schizophrenic and it made things worse. I used to blame it for the initiation of the schizophrenia but the medical community where I lived didn’t back that up. So I guess the drugs simply made a bad situation worse. When my Mom left town a few years ago I found out the doctor that prescribed the ADHD pills who was born in the town she was moving to had just died. It’s OK because I’ve forgiven him. RIP.
