> Second day on Concerta - absolutely more 'even' than Ritalin. I am taking the starting dose - 18 mg in the morning. Also, remember, I'm on a somewhat high dose of Depakote - 2000 mg. I have switched to taking 1000 mg at night, and 1000 in the morning as Mitch suggested - I do believe it keeps me more even. Thanks Mitch! (was taking all at night).
> Still an ocassional bought of irritability that I attribute to the stimulant. Yesterday, I felt it beginning to drop after about 10 hours. Slept well last night, though. Better energy and focus last two days.
> I'll add to this post as it progresses.
> I am having a slight fall into depression - nothing "serious" but I mentioned it to pdoc. He feels Concerta might be enough to help with that (AD's make me manic) but if not, we'll a tiny dose of Welbutrin (maybe).

Glad that is working fairly well! Keep us tuned in. Your writing definitely seems bright and clear (I can tell a difference). I am on a little Imipramine, I am going the cheap-ass route! I won't be able to tell diddly for another week or so how it will work-if it works as well as desipramine did with less anxiety I will be happy with it.

good luck,
