Thanks Ed,

I may, but it's Stimulants and benzos at the moment, tried Imipramine for a while for 2nd line ADD/HD treatment (Doc hoping he wouldn't have to write for a class B med)but it was a disaster. Give me stimulants anyday, hoping to try Dexamphetamine 5mg IR as apparently it lasts longer and Amphetamines are (from what i'v read) often better for adults. Ritalin is VERY effective for hyperactivaty, but perhaps less so for the wide range of ails Dex can deal to.

Ritalin often causes some anti-social effects-demonstrated in animal tests also- while Dex and Amphetamine has repeated, shown, prosocial effects, i could do with a few more friends, and after 18 months on Ritalin and last month scripted 80mgs daily, perhaps i'v warranted a trial of another med.

Cheers
