Psychiatric Medicines for ADHD patients- Should a student take these medicine to improve concentration......?

My brother is preparing for competition exams. .......... He is asking that is it safe and right to use these medicines for better performance in study? ........... Medicines are: Adderall or Ritalin. ........... These medicines help to improve concentration very much. ............ Many college students take these medicines to improve their concentration during exam times. ........... He says that he finds it difficult to concentrate for long time, and many useless thoughts keep coming in his mind.
He will take these after the advice of a psychiatrist.

Do any of you know about these medicines? Or have you used these? What is your experience?

A friend of mine took similar medication for years and now has on-going back and muscle problems. A relative of mine took "helpful" mind tablets for ages and now has Parkinsons. Personally I think it's a big money-making racket and a good multi-vitamin would help you more. As well as drinking more water and eating healthier, and exercise. As far as distraction goes, what if he keeps a pad with him? If something's on his mind, he can jot it down and then study in peace knowing he'll get around to it later.
