  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (irritability, loss of appetite, increased appetite)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 20 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: On terms of the side effects, when I take it I have no appetite. But I see this as a positive cause it keeps me from eating all day lol. HOWEVER the withdrawal side effects when it wears off is the opposite so my appetite becomes supercharged. My weight kind of maintains though but if I want to lose weight I eat then take it later in the day so at night by the time it wears off, I'm ready for bed soon.

Advice & Tips: The positive effect is that it limits my appetite so I don't eat as much. The negative effect is when it wears off, my appetite becomes supercharged. But I've learned to control my appetite after it wears off.
