Do you think the fictional drug in the movie "Limitless" is actually supposed to be speed in real life?

speed is like caffine, it increases adrenaline and blood flow, causing increased energy, that has nothing to do with synaptic functions

No. Its was a SciFi. A fictional drug. Someone came with a possible idea. Its not really possible when u think about it. You cant increase you brain capacity by such large amounts and still function well. There is a reason our capacities became this way, whether we evolved into it, or God did it, it isnt healthy to do such a thing.

C'mon, it was a movie. Speed will not increase your intellect. It just artificially increases your metabolism. In the real world illicit drugs make you dumber, not smarter.
