Yeah I'm definitely going to try to find something that will help. I'm already on Provigil now, but not for ADHD. It works well to keep me awake, but not concentration.

I think I'll mention to my doc that maybe I should start Straterra again, even though it wasn't great for me, and I had some adverse reactions, I know I was more productive in day to day activities, which at least would allow me extra time to study.

He may question my reasoning for wanted to go back on something I didn't love. Maybe he'll have a better suggestion. I think I might mention my disorder to my advisors too, because I've bombed a few tests, they may want to know why. They may also be able to make med suggestions. I know they've done so for many of my classmates who are having problems finding proper medications for their conditions. (I think a lot of us were attracted to the field of medicine because we've dealt with our own chronic problems for many years. I'd say at least half my class has some sort of ongoing medication concern.)

It's slightly awkward to think about disclosing so much info to a professor, but we're a close group and open about so many things. Sometimes they talk to us like they're our mothers. :) But also, they talk to us like healthcare professionals when they know we have a problem. It's such an odd situation, but actually very nice.
