Apparently it is a lot more common than I thought. People using Aderall or ADHD medication when they code. High school students mostly.

Do you use performance enhancing drugs? How do you stand on this topic?

I drink coffee and pair it with l-theanine which is an amino acid I'm told helps take the buzz off. Seems to work but could be placebo.

I might also tap into a beer or two and try for the Ballmer peak from time to time, but that's about it.
