Psychostimulants, such as Adderall or Ritalin, are one of the most abused legal drugs on college campuses. These drugs have become very prevalent within the college culture nationwide, particularly in high achieving students in professional schools. Although they prove to be helpful when properly prescribed to ADHD patients, they can also be very dangerous to those who misuse them. Dr. Holly Peek and Dr. Mordecai Potash discuss the good and the ugly of psychostimulants on college campuses on the first episode of Psych Gumbo.
