I'll keep you posted. I think the plan is to try the stimulants first. Concerta is supposed to last 12 hours I think--which is a short day so staggering your doses might make sense. I'm on the lowest dosage 16 mg so that's not an option. I'm still not sure where I am with it anyway. Pretty sure the transition from short action to sustained release is done, but then there's figuring out the Neurontin piece, which has come down (from 1500mg a day to about 800-900 mg a day) and my system is probably still adjusting to that decrease. Anyway, cutting a long ramble short, I'll keep you posted. Thanks for the concern.

> Well, I like to know where you're walking, so let me/us know, okay? Is the plan to find the right stimulent with the right mood stabilizer, and leave ADs out of the picture? I am on cercerta. I couldn't adjust to any of the stimulents until I was on with a narcotic. And now I really don't know whether it makes a difference whether or not I take it, even though I'm up to 54mg a day.
> Actually, you could probably take away most of my other drugs and it wouldn't make a difference. I am also up to 400 mg of wellbutrin, but I'm still very very tired late afternoon. I have this theory that life is just too much to last a full day, and if I take a 30minute nap, everything feels better. I'm going to try spliting the concerta to twice a day, try to get around that theory. The only reason I care is when I am not home, or when people want to pick up stuff in the late afternoon, I can't take a nap, and then I almost fall asleep sitting up at about 8pm. (and wake up at 9 or 10, because my body thinks it's a nap, not time to sleep)
