To anyone else tempted to give up early in the memantine titration: Stay with the titration schedule. It WILL smooth out considerably. I am currently on day 11 of memantine titration (started entire first week at 2.5mg only because 5mg was simply too strong for my system)
Although I did not suffer any debilitating side effects and have been able to go about my usual schedule from day one, I must advise that it took me 5 or 6 days before I could truthfully say that I noticed ANY positive effect from memantine with respect to ADD symptoms, but there are more and more noticeable effects each day, ALL of them positive. Stay the course! I will follow up with further comments if anyone is interested.
