The term is most often associated with the illegal use of Ritalin®, Adderall®, Concerta® by people who oftentimes acquire them illegally. They are used to treat Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), which affect attention span, impulse control, self-discipline, and hyperactivity in the case of ADHD.
