Hi all,
Can't help but chime in--if you have bad ADd/ADHD, your brain is already a little off...I bet the primates in the study didn't have ADD/ADHD! I take Adderall, and just hope that the little damage done by the stimulant will offset the damage done by increased cortisol and decreased neurogenesis in the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus caused by how depressed I got when I couldn't pay attention to anything.

Studies like these reassure us that taking meds should really only be done inf medically necessary, since neuroscience (my field) is in the baby stages and will be for the next several hundred years...But if medically necessary, they can save your life. Who would have thought that smokers had a lower risk of Parkinson's Disease?
There are so many paradoxes in the psychopharmacology literature...

Liz
