Not So Smart Drugs: Stimulants and Academic Performance | Amelia Arria, MD

Clinicians who treat adolescents and young adults with ADHD should be aware of diversion of prescription stimulants. There should be a greater understanding regarding the overlap between nonmedical use of prescription stimulants and other drug use. Finally, nonmedical use of prescription stimulants is not associated with improved academic performance, but rather lower academic performance because of its association with marijuana and other drug use.
