Ole Miss students using Adderall may suffer the consequences

With finals week rapidly approaching, some Ole Miss students leave their former study vice, caffeine, for a new study buddy: Adderall. However, students may find the drug to be more harmful than helpful. 

The Oxford Police Department takes the use of Adderall without a prescription very seriously, and students found under these conditions will be legally penalized.

But physical consequences of abusing the drug may outweigh the legal penalties. Sleep deprivation, a common side effect from using Adderall, actually lowers test-taking performance in most cases. Additionally, using the popular drug when not diagnosed with ADD or ADHD potentially threatens the heart.
