It's sold over the counter as the active ingredient in bronchodilators. It opens up your lung cells basically for increased oxygen intake. Heck, it could be just the oxygen alone that helps maintain focus and concentration...but it's also a stimulant, so it's doing multiple things at one time. I never take more than half a pill in one day, because it has a strong affect on me, but I think it's effects vary greatly from person to person, based on a person's existing natural neuro-chemistry.
