This is true.
I find Focalin helpful. You would know pretty quickly if a stimulant is going to be useful to you.

Thanks. I don't know, alcohol seems to bring me down for four-five days and I believe it's a culprit. Today has actually been a good day with 250mg of modafinil. Need to stay away from alcohol. If I can continue to stay at this level I will probably keep Lamictal and Seroquel.
I don't know about methylphenidate, can you exercise on it? How often do you take it and at what dosage?
