On what basis? Neither methylphenidate (MPH) nor cocaine (which are
pharmacologically very similar) appear similar to amphetamine in animal
studies of neurotoxicity. At low doses, MPH even appears mildly
*neuroprotective*, but that's mostly from memory and I certainly
wouldn't leap to speculation about what happens in humans.
