When I decided to go off my Straterra, my doc said that was OK since I had 3 weeks off from school. We didn't discuss what would happen when school started again!

But then I soon went back to due extreme fatigue. He suggested Concerta. I said I'd had Provigil before so we went with this. The combination of the two may be beneficial. He was willing to do this even though I have extreme GAD and insomnia.

I think my doc and PA don't fully believe the ADHD thing. They think my concentration problems are caused more by anxiety. While sometimes that is true, I do have major underlying inattentive ADHD. I just have the ability to struggle through school, make fine grads, and appear intelligent. They have no idea how it actually interferes with school and life. I don't study because it's almost painful. I don't listnen to lectures in class. I misplace everything, and have to be reminded constantly to do things.
