  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder)
  • Side effects
    Mild (binge eating episodes, decreased appetite)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I experience a calmness. I feel my brain is slowed down, I can organize the files in my head. I focus and concentrate for longer periods of time (but still desire more on-task behavior.) The only side effect I have found is the lack of appetite all day and a ravenous hunger at night when med is wearing off. Resulted in a little weight gain. An additional perk is that this med gives me energy, and a sense of well being about myself that isn't there without it. Note: this is the only ADHD med I have tried. I am satisfied with the efficacy.
