Chemotherapy patient Melissa Norber took part in a study led by Dr. Elyse Lower at the University of Cincinnati. It's the first trial to test a drug's effect on Chemobrain symptoms.
The drug under study is Dexmethylphenidate and is in the Ritalin family.
It also improved memory. It works, but Dr. Lower isn't exactly sure how. For patients like Melissa, how it works is not as important as that it works.
