Tempted? You bet!

This sounds like exactly the sort of thing I need. I wonder what it might do to creativity?

let's us know how this works out. I'm certainly tempted.

Johann's article was a sensationalist piece of fluff, written for an English tabloid. I wouldn't take his account seriously, because he's wrong about what the drug does and his account doesn't agree with other published accounts. All the stuff does is keep you awake. It doesn't increase your memory or intelligence. It's the sort of thing that kills creativity. Good if you're an infantryman on an overnight combat mission, not good for people who need to think deeply or broadly.

There are safer and more effective ways to do that, discussed here.
