In principle, smart drugs improve cognitive performance. In detail, the following factors are supported and improved:
In an interview with the Süddeutsche Zeitung, three students reported their experiences with a very well-known smart drug called Ritalin.3
They described that their thinking performance improved improbably by taking it.
A Swiss pharmacologist had also tested the effects of another well-known smart drug with the active ingredient modafinil himself in order to form his own opinion. He reported feeling exceptionally alert, focused and motivated some time after taking it.4
As promising as the effects are, the frightening side effects must by no means be disregarded.
