3 things parents of high schoolers need to know about 'study drugs'
from U.S. News & World Report
The second half of the school year can be a stressful time for high schoolers with the SAT, ACT, final exams and other important academic events on the agenda. Some teens may resort to using so-called "study drugs" — often prescription amphetamines like Adderall — to get it all done. These drugs, sometimes called "smart drugs," are often used to treat attention deficit disorder or narcolepsy, but students without these conditions sometimes take them when they study to enhance focus and concentration, says Selina Oliver, a school psychologist with Anne Arundel County Public Schools in Maryland who works with high schoolers.
