  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder)
  • Side effects
    Mild (Elevated blood pressure, Constipation)
  • Adherence
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: To be honest, this medication was ok, but I didn't see how it benefitted me to be on it. It helped me slightly with add/adhd(I don't believe that I am add/adhd as much as I am bipolar II and these symptoms are a result of being hypomanic). Perhaps this would have worked better if I was truly add/adhd. When I came off of it, I noticed that it did affect my moods to a degree, and I would get bouts of depression. However that didn't last very long. The side affects were very mild compared to my other medications.
Cost: $50-99 monthly
Side effects: Constipation, Elevated blood pressure
