> Um, no, they're suppose to make your room very clean and your class notes very detailed. I still have to force myself to walk to the library, but once I'm there, I do work. Try that. It'll have you focus on whatever you're doing at the time-- taking notes, watching tv, or sitting in class. Change your setting, not your dose, and you'll do fine.
hmmm... i don't feel motivated to clean my room at all.. (or get out of bed, dress, shower, cook, etc)
it does seem to improve focus but i don't get a real sense of pleasure ... not like SSRIs
i thought SSRIs were supposed to cause apathy, not stimulants ... ??
