This note is toward the end of the article:

A note on medication: When I take medication I feel these skills being dulled. I can't think as quickly, I'm not as outgoing. ADHD medication also contributes to an increase in anxiety, and so for me it's not worth it. If you're struggling you should absolutely try it. For some people, medication is a must. Don't ever feel bad about taking it if it helps you.

The other thing you have to realize about medicine, is that effects can car drastically person to person. For some, it makes them think quicker and makes them much more social.
