Maybe my way of writing it wasn't correct, thanks for the correction. But a lot of college students use Adderall to help them focus in their schoolwork. I'm simply asking if anyone doesn't use any chemicals as a "crutch" to get them through Nursing School
If they're using it legally, they're using it to help them focus because they have ADHD and don't focus well without it.
Using it in this fashion is as much of a crutch as insulin is to a diabetic, since folks with ADHD have a decrease of dopamine in the pre-frontal cortex and stimulants like Adderall increase the amount of dopamine in this area of the brain.
