Study on stimulants as treatment?


Question from Jashery: In the 2002 conference, it was mentioned that there was a study that was going to look at stimulant-type drugs in helping with attention and fatigue. What were the results of this study?
Answers - Patricia A. Ganz, M.D. There has been a study underway being conducted by investigators in Toronto. As far as I'm aware, it has not become available either in a scientific presentation or published paper.
Marisa Weiss, M.D. Until we know more about the role of stimulants, be careful with their use. Stimulants, which include coffee and other medications, affect people in very different ways. I would only consider their use with careful medical management.
