My 16 year old daughter takes Concerta for inattentive ADD and it helps her greatly with focus. It's makes the difference between competing to be valedictorian of her class or taking six years to get through high school. She doesn't have any other psych problems (which is wonderful considering the genes she had to choose from)! You're probably aware that it's another form of high-tech timed released Ritalin (never can be sure I am spelling methylphenidate, or whatever, right).
Yes, you are right, selegiline metabolizes to methamphetamine. I forget information on a regular basis. At one time I took 60 mgs of the stuff, so 10 mg seems like a very small dose to me. I do highly recommend light boxes to anyone with a SAD component. It is my breakfast and newspaper reading companion. Mine seems to really help in the winter.
I hope you find the right combo soon.
