Ever heard of smart drugs? I've researched them but wanted to reach out to hear from you all what you know. Smart drugs are drugs which usually are prescribed to those with ADHD or Dyslexia, Dementia, Alzheimers, or people with impaired cognitiion in general. Looks like some healthy people have been using them to do better in school and at work.

Do you or anyone you know have actual experience? I honestly knew nothing of them until this weekend when something online kind of caught my attention on the topic, then low and behold this seems to be some sort of popular, world-wide University-student thing (I must be out of touch - most of these drugs have been around for years, but I never heard of using them to do better on exams, increase memory retention, or even increase creativity - LOL, perhaps I would have done better in school!).

For those who know nothing of this topic but might be curious to read about it, I found a few links:

A Dose Of Genius - washingtonpost.com
Smart drugs for straight As - Times Online
Mail&Guardian Smart Drugs (broken link)
Neuroscience for Kids - Smart Drugs?

Be careful what you wish for. TV will no longer entertain you if get really smart and cognitive. Most people will bore you. You might discover the real reasons some people wear tin foil hats. Harry Potter will put you to sleep. The only things you will be able to talk about are the paintings of Salvadore Dali, quantum mechanics and bio mechanics.
