I'd say so, else they wouldn't see a need to take that medication.

Imagine an audition with 10 people; each one masters the piece while in the study. Every one - understandably - suffers from various degrees of nervousness, or stage fright if you like. That nervousness will bring down their performance down to say 85..95% of what they'd be able to deliver.

Now three of them gulp a BB before the audition, thus alleviating their nervousness. Those three now can give it full throttle while the other ones remain at 90%.
Compared with the "sober" group, the "doped" group did improve their performance. Not by magically growing a second pinky but by removing the impediment. They did not improve their performance relatively to what they could tape-record alone in their study, agreed. But taking a medication gave them an advantage over those who didn't. That is my concern.
