Within an hour, his attention sharpened. So did his memory. He aced a series of mental-agility tests. If his brainpower would normally rate a 10, the drug raised it to 15, he said.

By the time Brenda Oathout had finished chemotherapy for her breast cancer, the Caledonia, N.Y., woman noticed a distinct change in her ability to think. "Everything was a struggle. I couldn't remember things," she said. "Forgetfulness is not a strong enough word. My thought process was clouded. The more you struggle to think and remember, the more fatigued you become. By 3 o'clock, I was exhausted, overwhelmed with life."
