> I feel more confident, maybe a bit more introverted, but in a different way toward Anafranil. I'm not social phobic at all but a bit less interested in people while more confident at the same time when talking to them (don't know if this is clear : ). A bit obsessive (but for me being a bit organized means "obsessive" ;-), less sense of humour, maybe less sharp, anyway it's only my second day therefore it's too early for generalizations.
> Motivation is very good, focus is the overfocused kind, if this is the Rit I think it's ten times better than Anafranil for me. I feel like I were an organized Francesco which is a very strange sensation. No drastic changes of personality, hope I found the one ;-) I think also that it "normalizes" me, never been normal so, I don't really know what to do : )
> Let me know what you're doing ... I don't see your threads anymore !

Ah, yes. I was wondering what you were up to, Francesco. :-) I've been working part time this week and have had less time to 'babble'.

Are you sure the Anafranil is out of your system right now? When did you last take it?

I dropped pemoline again after I gave my original morning dose of 37.5 mg another try and my ability to focus *dropped* and then a crash set in during the afternoon. I notice no real difference on 18.75 mg tid.

I am having encouraging results with 3000 mg/day L-tyrosine and 300mg/day 5-HTP plus my sundry vitamins and minerals. If it keeps up I may drop the notion of seeing a psychiatrist.
