I used to be on Ritalin and stopped about a year ago, & I really haven't gotten anything done in the past year!

I tried Dexedrine & Adderall but they didn't help me focus like Ritalin did.

The problem with Ritalin is that it works so well that its psychologically addictive, once you know how well you can work with it, when you stop taking it you can't do anything.

But atleast you have Provigil. My doctor won't give me any stimulants anymore since I abused the Dexedrine I was prescribed. Now all I have is NoDoz + Ephedrine which doesn't work at all for focusing!

I did notice Ritalin made me kind of weird & anti-social. Dexedrine made me very outgoing, happy, & cheerful but had effects much closer to Ritalin than Adderall does. Some people say it is like Ritalin but lasts 5 hours instead of 3. Perhaps as a compromise b/t focus & outgoingness you should try Dexedrine.
