The FDA raised eyebrows over the past couple of years with the speed at which they’re approving smart drugs. However, experts observed that there is often little to no proof that these drugs work. Nuplazid is one example associated with Parkinson’s Disease but there’s no evidence of its effectiveness (via PBS).
One massive problem is that unintended users attempt to hack prescription drugs’ perceived benefits and use them as nootropics. The FDA has a responsibility to ensure that they’re legalizing safe substances. This also includes educating people about the myths regarding certain smart drugs.
