I went on Adderall just before the start of this semester with a gpa of about 2.8. Not very good and certainly a huge drop from the 3.9 I carried in high school. Anyway, this semester I managed a 3.7 and made dean's list. I took 16 hours and had the heaviest workload I've had in my 4 years of college. I'm not saying Adderall is a miracle drug, far from it in fact, but it did make the difference. I can't even begin to describe the improvement in my test taking ability. It's amazing how much more easily I could recall information as the semester went on. Actually remembering the things I studied. Reading a book and being there while I'm reading it. I think everyone here can understand what I mean by that. I'm still a little floored by this, so I thought I'd post it here.
