My room mate has used it a couple times. He told me it really helps but I don't know how good your memorization is while you are on it but it makes you focused as fuck

that's the only reason why i would even consider it, i tend to doze off while studying and find myself having read only 1 page in half an hour and i just recently heard about this drug. truth is i don't do drugs and the thought of me abusing something like that scares the shit outta me.

Be careful though because I heard some schools are doing random drug testing after exams.

I am not going to try and tell you to drugs but it could be beneficial. I would honestly try and work on being more focused but if you can't then you could try it. Of course don't do any drug without reading up about it before hand, it will make it easier to try it.

I have never heard of that, nor have I ever experienced it

Adderalls are decent.

You won't sleep though.. for the next 12 hours or so at least.

I have been somewhat tempted to try (I have no adversity to drugs per se and am under a lot of pressure wrt intellectual performance) but my experience is that those students who do try it typically become somewhat dependent. At the risk of sounding a bit new-agey, I would say that you should try to tackle the core problem, not treat the symptoms with drugs.
