Have you tried modafinil or adrafinil? Historically, people here have had more luck with adrafinil. I tried modafinil without success. More importantly to me, it produced are worsening of depression, especially brain-fog. It took 2-3 weeks after discontinuation for this mental state to begin to
subside.

I think most people who commented found that amphetamine is "smoother" for them than methylphenidate (Ritalin). That was my experience as well. Your point is well-taken, though. There is too much interindividual variability in responses to the same drug such that making statements describing a 1 to 1 association is rarely applicable.
