Re: Focalin less agitating than methylphenidate?

I have tried almost all the stims, and I considered Focalin at the dose I was on (5mg) to be like a strong cup of coffee. Like another poster here, I felt left down, worn out and tired after it wore off.

My preference is Concerta, which is methylphenidate in a specially designed capsule so that it releases some of the medication immediately, then dispenses the rest over an 8-12 hour period. I find that, taken early enough in the day, it does not interefere with my sleep. It only gives me enough of a stimulation to help with the fatigue, but doesn't do much for my mood.

I just started Strattera yesterday, so I am hopeful that it will increase my mood so that I can get some relief from the day-to-day depression.

Take good care,
