OK...I have an update, of sorts....

I'm in my 11th day at 80mg [40 at 8am, 40 at 4[pm]and this was after 2 weeks on 40mg and all I notice is that I'm sleeping better and still having fun, vivid dreams.

I don't feel any ADHD relief. I haven't been getting much done and I have been all **too hungry**, and I have been as uncoordinated as ever. I was hoping this would help the physical coordination as Ritalin did for the 19 years I took it. I know what it feels like to have my brain work right and this isn't it yet!!!

I just can't get into gear and do some jobs I need to do, and actually, usually enjoy...I just put them off apathetically...[if that's a word]...I mean with apathy....blah-ness. Don't give ahoot!!!

I want some kind of revelation or motivation or something to let me know this is kicking in and I'm not wasting my time.

I have a question....

The doc gave me some 60mg pills in case I wanted to take one of those in the am instead of 40mg. I weigh 150#. Do yall think I should up my am dose to 60mg? I'm putting it to a vote!!! See how bored I am!

I just sat here for 4 hours and read everything I could on this drug and how dopamine affects ADHD and I'm not sure much has sunk in.
