I am a female who had perfect grades until 4th grade. At that point I had a hard time paying attention although I do not feel I was hiper (but I did have outbursts occationally.) I remember I would look at the teacher, here her, but my mind would be thinking about something else so I never got what she said. Today, I find this true many times when in a conversation with someone, I miss words or even sentences when my mind, I think, thinks "This is boring, lets think about someting else." Its like I lose control. The same thing happens when I read. I can read a whole paragraph and realise I was actually thinking about someting else and have to reread it. Even if it is someting I'm interested in, my mind has a mind of its' own, it seems.

Currently I'm taking 200 mg Wellbutrin 2 x day, plus 15 mg BuSpar 2 x day, and 20 mg Celexa a day. The Wellbutrin has helped, but not enough. My Psy Doc does not want me to go to stimulants because of the need to increase dosages after a while to get the same effect. I have a feeling that reboxetine will be useful for me and will be the first in line when it is released.
