My doc said that 1/3 of folks don't see any improvement at all so don't feel excluded.

I'm only on my 5th day at 40mg but I definitely feel a little something....I mentioned in another post that I can judge effectiveness in myself by an improvement in my typing and handwriting.

I tried it with a positive attitude since Ritalin and Dex worked so well for me...I think I have the kind of ADHD that can respond to drugs more easily and I don't have stomach problems or other side effects.

I gotta mention the strangest effect of Strat on my sleep...each of the 4 nights on it I have awaken consecutively at 3, 3:30,4, 4;30. Exactly... to the minute when I looked at the clock. It's giving me an extra half hour as I get used to it...but the internal clock is weird. I just had to tell someone else who has taken this stuff. Brain meds are weird stuff!!!

Each night I have gone back to sleep and I got 8 hours total, last night. But after the wake-up I have the most fun dreams...I'm starting to look forward to them!!! It's like a "trip" from the 60's, I imagine....cuz I never did drugs then!!!
