    Default Cognition-enhancing drugs?

    Sometimes we talk about how we've had our MS moments or about brain fog or about just slowing down mentally. It seems there are cognition-enhancing drugs that can help you to be smarter or at least to be more likely to win at chess.

    I wouldn't take one of these drugs for this purpose but just wondered how others feel about them.

    This article in JAMA (August 16, 2017), "Chess Study Revives Debate over Cognition-Enhancing Drugs," tells about them:

    MS diagnosed 1980. Avonex 2002-2005. Copaxone 6/07 - 5/10.
    Member of this MS board since 2001.
