In brief: Not Much At Reg Dose

If you are talking about regularly prescribed doses, not much will happen.
You might notice some improvement in alertness or concentration, even if these are not normally problem areas. Contrary to what is commonly stated, people who "don't need" these meds do not have a higher incidence of side effects if they take them.
