> > Thanks, Kazoo. Let me ask you another one. Let's say that you take it exactly as prescribed (20 mg 2x/day) That's 40 mg. I realize that tolerance will set in and it will take more to make me feel 'normal' eventually..Just want to know what you think about non-abuse of it. In your opinion, is it safe to take it basically forever,as prescribed, because I understand that symptoms usually return when especially adults stop taking CNS stimulants. Have you ever taken Adderall, ritalin, dexedrine etc.? I appreciate you taking the time answer my questions! You are one of the cool one's out there!

I don't feel very "cool." In fact, I'm really not.

Also, I'm no expert in these matters. I just draw on my own personal experiences. I've taken, at one time or another, all those drugs mentioned, including some which were yanked off the market declared by the AMA as "irrational mixtures" (a stimulant and depressant combination). I never had a problem with any of them but I, too, was aware of the "potential" for habituation.

As always, medicine, when used within the proper perspective works wonders. A problem arises when the "wonderment" wears off and you start to increase the dose to get the same effect (or "kick"); however, this may or may not happen. Drugs work on an individual to individual basis.

What I think you're doing is worrying about this too much, and you shouldn't. Take the medicine the way the doctor wants you to and keep him informed of any changes in your behavior that may cause you to do otherwise.

You'll be alright.
