Ole Miss students use "study drugs" to help them through finals week

As finals quickly approach students at the University of Mississippi, tension and stress levels are high all over campus. With some students having five or even six finals in one week, they are willing to try anything to keep them focused on studying in order to achieve their desired grade. One way some of these students are staying focused is with the help of some "study drugs" better known as Adderall or Vyvanse.
A prescription bottle for one Ole Miss student prescribed to Vyvanse.
Because these drugs are so popular among college students at Ole Miss, pharmacies and doctor's offices around Oxford have adopted a strict protocol about how to prescribe students to these medications. With side effects like loss of appetite and elevated heart rate, students must be very careful when taking these medications. Those who have not been prescribed by a doctor could be putting themselves at serious risk. Ole Miss is just one of many colleges where these drugs are being used and possibly abused for studying purposes. To find out more, click here.
