Study: Adderall doesn't help kids get better grades

from The Atlantic

More than 1 in 20 American children between the ages of 4 and 17 are medicated for attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder — up nearly 500 percent since 1990. Drugs like Adderall and Ritalin have a reputation as "good-grade pills" and "cognitive enhancers" that produce near-immediate improvements in the ability of children to pay attention in school. The thing is, studies tracing the impact of ADHD meds report no improvement in academic performance in the long term, as Nature reports in a new review of existing research, and kids taking the drugs are in some cases more likely to drop out of school. more
