I had the same question: whether amphetamine is better then methylphenidate in terms of social interaction.

Amphetamines in theraputic doses have not been shown to produce neurotoxicity, although this may still happen I don't know. There are studies showing however, that amphetamines (in theraputic doses) can speed recovery after stroke. Amphetamines, in theraputic doses, also appear to enhance hippocampal plasticity / neurogenesis.

There are often people (on stimulants) on this board who write poorly. This could be an effect of the stimulants or other underlying disorders or medications (or simply due to the fact that stimulants tend to get prescribed as cognative enhancers for those with MID.

Unfortunately, some people who are prescribed amphetamines abuse them. This can complicate the clincal picture.
