Ritalin worked well for me but I did delepope a toleranne and kept bumping my dose without authoritaion form the doc. I definiteltely became addicted...at least I the craved the drug.
Lately, I've been using Provigil. It is a marvekous drug. It is not quite as effective as the Ritalin but does not built a tolerance...nor do I bump by dose.
Provigil aslo helps with deression (I am also on Paxil and Remaron) VERY significantly and helps my short term memory and to stay on task and focused at work. It's not magic or a panacea! But I believe it is a low risk, faily harmless drug that is worth a try.
Best wishes and good luck!
