Are you asking about: neuropsychological effects of chronic misuse/ overprescription of amphetamine or methylphenidate or chronic use of methamphetamine or cocaine ? Was did brain MRI show? Have you seen an ophthalmologist? Chronic misuse of amphetamine causes low levels of dopamine in the prefrontal cortex , associated with cognitive deficits diagnosed by neuropsychological tests. Beta blockers won't reverse this.
