I remember reading a story about where everyone used cognitive enhancement drugs to perform intellectually. The main character had a daughter that used them (in law school?) but they were earlier drugs that had negative consequences (burning people out, making them stutter, other cognitive problems with their long term use.)
Eventually, the drugs became better. People would take them, and work without stopping, to "get ahead." There were many social problems due to people not slowing down to have families, not sleeping, and had generally dystopian elements. It was also difficult for the people on the earlier set of drugs to compete with those on the later drugs.
I remember one part, how when people would finally take a break from their job, they wouldn't sleep. They'd party, skydive, or bungee jump, or drink and dance.
It was in a sad tone, where the narrator/main character would talk about how his daughter's life was messed up, because she tried to get ahead.
The software company I own is meeting with a nootropic supplement (not evaluated by the FDA...) company tomorrow, and I'd love to be able to ask if they've read this story. This will probably not be helpful for the sale, but it will make things interesting if they have read it! I'd like to be able to identify this by title, author, and Internet Archive link, if possible.
