> Question, what do you mean when you say it has no effect? Do you mean to say that you don't feel any anxiety (because stimulants can possibly perpetuate any vulnerability or feeling of anxiety), or even your heart rate being faster? Does it keep you awake, make you feel less sleepy when you are tired, or make you sleepy, relaxed, calm, put you out like a baby that just had a bottle? Effect, of a drug it not all or nothing, it works for some symptoms and not others (it rarely works for all ADD symptoms), similarly, it will not "take-away" symptoms for you, it cannot make you concentrate, all meds can do is allow/help you help yourself!!!
> I myself was discouraged by the results of Ritalin when I first took it (also when i was 21), I noticed a difference but thought that it would do more (i.e., since it took care of most symptoms I thought that this would directly translate into tasks being easier, concentration being better etc.) it wasn't until a few months later that it I really started to see how it benefited me and how it helped me to help myself. It was months later that I noticed a change in my own behavior, even though others noticed immediately!
> I hope I was of some help to you. Hang in there!!

Hi, THank You Both!

It actually seems to of late have some less than positive effects on me, I have felt less content or excited, or happy, My heartbeat has been going quite fast for about 2 or 3 weeks before I began the adderall, I have been unable to concentrate on any books, and have found difficulty reading, as well as some difficulty now with organization, almost seems that a bit more than before, do you think its possible that this might only be the medication? and that if its either: I havent been on it long enough, or the medication isnt for me, then is it possible that another medication might work for me?
And May I ask you a question, How has Riddalin changed you? how has your behaviour changed? Please if you could, be unbiased to your previous.I am most most curiouse about this!!

Thanx Again!!
