Well look at it this way 35% of American secondary school graduates are quasi-illiterate. Perhaps taking less drugs and focusing more on studies etc. might actually bring their marks up. Adderal taking in decent quantities because it's a stimulant may infact let some of these over partied kids stay up longer. Besides if your not smart enough for university and you don't think you can make it with out the help of pills perhaps you should re-think what type of education you want if you can't keep up.

Doing some research on the web and found that many college students are now taking ADDERALL to aid in their studies. It appears this substance helps to focus attention on their school work as well as increases memory capacity.
Does anyone have experience with this drug and its effects?
I am most interested in hearing form those who use it for this particular purpose.
It is clear it is primarily used to address ADHD/ADD in kids.
However according to a recent news report I saw on FOX or CNN, college students are using it during their studies.

AMPHETAMINES HAVE A HIGH POTENTIAL FOR ABUSE. ADMINISTRATION OF AMPHETAMINES FOR PROLONGED PERIODS OF TIME MAY LEAD TO DRUG DEPENDENCE AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PARTICULAR ATTENTION SHOULD BE PAID TO THE POSSIBILITY OF SUBJECTS OBTAINING AMPHETAMINES FOR NON-THERAPEUTIC USE OR DISTRIBUTION TO OTHERS, AND THE DRUGS SHOULD BE PRESCRIBED OR DISPENSED SPARINGLY.
MISUSE OF AMPHETAMINE MAY CAUSE SUDDEN DEATH AND SERIOUS CARDIOVASCULAR ADVERSE EVENTS.
During World War II, over 72 million amphetamine tablets were given to soldiers on both sides of the conflict to keep them alert and awake. The amphetamines also caused psychosis-like aggression in some soldiers. Hitler was also known to have taken amphetamines daily, by injection, which probably increased his psychotic aggressiveness, as well.
In 1965 all amphetamines became illegal in the U.S. unless a person had a doctors prescription.
In 1970 The Controlled Substances Act severely restricted the legal production of injectable methamphetamine.
In 1971, there were 31 amphetamine preparations being distributed by 15 pharmaceutical companies. Legal production was over 12 billion pills a year.
