Prescription Drugs

Most "study drugs", like Adderall and Concerta, are available by prescription only.


Drug Abuse

Using prescription medication outside of doctor's orders is considered mis-use and abuse.



Adderall is an amphetamine salts-based medication prescribed for the treatment of ADD, ADHD, and narcolepsy.

Adderall and Concerta, the drugs most commonly used as "study drugs" are legally available by prescription only for many reasons. The most important is that they have many dangerous side effects. These drugs should only be taken after a doctor has screened the patient. Then the doctor should monitor the patient's use of the drug. Taking prescription drugs for any reason other than that for which they were designed and prescribed is illegal and dangerous.

The short answer is "no, it is not safe to take 'study drugs'.
