Limitless film, sounds familiar

I caught a trailer for the new film Limitless the other day - guy takes a pill which makes him smarter and uses that to make himself successful.

I thought "That sounds familiar, haven't I read that story somewhere before?"

The film is based on the novel The Dark Fields by Alan Glynn published in 2001. Which would answer my question except I haven't read that book.

Picking through the memories I finally reach Lest We Remember by Isaac Asimov a short story published in 1982 in which a guy gets an injection that aids his memory recall and which he uses to push his way up through a company to make himself successful.

I'm sure they're two very different stories, just been bugging me.
