I also had many side affects at the beginning (taking it 2.5 months now). I had minimal trouble sleeping, but an incredibly hard time staying awake during the day while at work. In order to function, I just drank lots and lots of coffe to counteract the sleepiness, and the lack of motivation. Gradually I needed to use less and less coffee. I also had problems with urinary retention, minor headaches,and dry mouth. Those too went away gradually. The final result?--I'm not a different person, but it has helped me in many ways. Just try and stick with it in spite of the side affects. And by the way, it really didn't start helping my ADD until about 3 weeks after starting. It's like an antidepressent, it takes a while to work.
