Advice & Tips: Do not drink coffee when you're on this medication. It will cause severe anxiety if even one little thing that's negative happens to you, especially if you are also neurotic. It seems to help my mood when I'm on it, but coming down from these stimulants can sometimes be depressing and lead to anxiety. It took me a little while to find good times to take the medication so it would last all day and not be too much or too little. If you take too much in one day, it will cause you to become anxious. I also found that it made me quite a perfectionist, so some projects are taking longer than they used to.

Advice & Tips: With any treatment, you should always be evaluating yourself daily while trying to find the best cocktail for you. I'm basically my own Doctor as far as what works and isn't worth taking. This drug should of been taken when I was in my teens, but I didn't get diagnosed until I was 40 (3 years ago) Already had deep suspension, but life WAS functional and I don't believe this played to much of a part in my depression
