This issue is the real bear about stimulants--I have struggled with it for a long time without finding a reliable solution, so if anyone has one please let me know.

The night stimulant dose trick that works for some guarantees that I will be up all night, and sleeping pills leave me with an icky sleepiness the next day even after taking a stimulant.

Letting the drug wear off a couple of hours before bed is a good may be able to get through the anxious period before you lie down. A glass of wine is helpful in my experience. Of course if you happen to be cranking through family life (or something) until the second you rest your head this may be impractical.

I gather there are plenty of people out there who can take their Pstims daily with no ill effect and never need to increase their dosage, but for many of us they are kind of a devil's bargain.

I struggle with feeling like a drug addict, and with the recognition that I spend a lot of mental energy on stimulant management, but on balance I usually feel it beats the alternative.

Does anyone else struggle with stimulant guilt?
