> BK, I agree that it's important to give a medication a significant amount of time to be effective but I've been doing that with meds for years and so I thought I might try something different. My hope is to get different results -- hopefully good ones! Dr. Jensen's method seems somewhat logical and I'm willing to give it a try because if it doesn't work at least I didn't waste too much time with it. In any case, thanks for the words of encouragement! I hope the best for you as well! Am I correct in assuming that you have had a somewhat similar history of response to medication as me? I would be very interested in learning what proves to be effective for you. Please keep me posted on how things turn out for you. Thanks again! I wish the best for you.

I'm currently on Adrafinil, 300 mg, and have been taking it for a little over two weeks. I did experience headaches which seemed to be helped most by Ibuprofen. I also notice episodes of anxiety which I have had in the past, so I'm not really clear if it is related to the Adrafinil. Insomnia and some sexual dysfunction have also been noted. I'm still depressed and have noticed little if any improvement in my cognitive abiilities, but i think its way too early to give up yet.

Its always been my rule to try a med for a significant period, regardless of side effects, so that I may cross it off my list with confidence. This has proven to be a painful experience, but a necessary one as far as I'm concerned.

My experience with AD's are similar to yours. The only one that really worked, albeit short lived, was Nardil. I felt tremendous on it, but after a few months it actually made me feel worst. That was 14 yrs ago and i've been searching for a new med ever since.

Just recently, I'm feeling light headed and experiencing insomna which i attribute to the Adrafinil. Still no positive effects to speak of. I'll keep you posted and you do likewise.
