> >I also have problems concentrating and remembering simple things, like words I've known for years and suddenly can't recall when use is appropriate. I'm taking effexor225mg, dexadrine20mg, and pindolol5mg. Please if anybody knows how to improve this FOLLOWUP!

Jeff, what I'm learning to do is skim the material
I don't have the concentration to read word for
word. The problem with this is missing details
and nuances, which could be dangerous if I were
trying to learn something new like building a
bomb (ha ha ha, sometimes details are important).
Yet, it seems better to get a generalization than
to get nothing.

Also, I am learning how to organize my thoughts by
writing them down on paper first. This seems to
make problem solving easier for me because some-
times it seems easier to think on paper than in
my head. It seems like my thoughts are scattered
and I lack the inability to pull them all together
in my mind. Writing helps, especially if you use a
fountain pen :=) (It's fun to write with a foun-
tain pen.) I have to capture those thoughts
before they get away, it seems!! They are
elusive, sometimes. Writing also helps if you are
forgetful, too, which I am. I write out my plans
for each day, this reminds me what I need to do
and the order in which I might do them.

Just some thoughts. You might be functioning on a
higher level than me. I'm pretty basic, right
now. Hope things pick up for you.
