It finally occurs to me that perhaps you good people could help me with a difficulty I am facing in terms of my medicine. I feel like a major neurotic when I write all of this down, but here goes.

I have, in the past, taken stimulants to help with my ADD. They help. I take 2.5mg of dexedrine, I can concentrate for a few hours. It's a good thing.

On the down side, I rebound horribly. I turn into either a total space cadet or an overgrown toddler once it wears off. And, if I take it less than 14 hours before bedtime, I don't sleep. Oh, and then sometimes I skip meals, because in the complete absence of appetite, I can't make myself eat.

It's possible the side effects would get somewhat better if it took it regularly instead of only when I have something extremely difficult and important to do, but I can't imagine putting up with it that long. I can't bear the thought of being a crazy person every night when my sweetie gets home for days or weeks on end.

Also, I'd like to be able to focus in the afternoons sometimes, but I can't take the dexedrine that late in the day.

A few years ago, I didn't have this much trouble with my medicine!

I still have that free sample of Strattera lying around. Does that work for anyone?
