I think personal accounts are going to be important here. Let's see how many people actually benefited themselves from treatment with stimulants.

It was my experience that amphetamine and methylphenidate were ineffective. I was taking Parnate and desipramine at the time. With amphetamine, I did experience a barely perceptible improvement that lasted for three days, after which, I derived no benefit at all. I did not try cycling on and off the drug.

I look forward to reading the accounts of others.

Good luck.
