Welcome to the board. You addressed some important yet often overlooked items on the ADHD control short list. Hope you don't mine me putting key points in bold.


Wow, something has changed. If you are currently implementing Hence's stuff and still no cigar, talk to your doctor about another med. Paradoxicallly, it is not uncommon for methlyphenidate to cause drowsiness. You might have to upgrade to Foculin or possibly an amphetamine class med such as Adderall or possibly Dexedrine. The more potent stimulants are much less likely to cause drowsiness.

What I find puzzling is that you experience drowsiness now, after a long Ritalin hiatus, but not before. Med management IS complicated. Guess that's why you need a license to prescribe meds. And that I don't have.
