Advice & Tips: lack of sleep, overwhelming life, too much to do and fatigue 24/7 made it difficult to get anything done. My son was diagnosed with ADD and was on it, and it worked great. So I went to my primary and said I want to try it, and even tho I dont have ADD, it has helped me get through my lists of things to do! Instead of " ok,call the doctor for appointment...look up this or that.....take your shot.." and never getting the doc appt made for example, its helped me focus on a task at a time.
