Would you take a pill that made you smarter?



Its marketed under the name Pro-Vigil, and is very expensive! If you can get your GP to give you a private prescription it will set you back approx £150.00 for a months supply (one tablet per day).
Most doctors are reluctant to issue it on the NHS.

I'm wondering if the "learning effect" might have something to do with the fact that the people taking the drug are not as tired (as their sleep is much improved). Some more study required, methinks.

That said, I might consider it as I'm already on enough drugs to sink a (toy) battleship... Alright,,,,, a small one.
