Is it okay to take Ritalin or Adderall if you don’t have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder? Both are stimulants prescribed to treat ADHD and similar conditions, but more and more college students are taking them to stay awake, suppress their appetite, or just because they say it makes them feel smarter when they’re taking a test. They’re buying them from fellow students who have prescriptions. Is this safe? Is it legal?

Join us for a discussion about the sharing of ADHD medications on college campuses. A panel of experts will explore this issue, and the event includes time for audience Q&A. The session will also be recorded as a live podcast.
