I too cannot focus on one thing for very long unless I am obsessing about it (i.e. hyperfocusing/perseverating). The medication I am one, Adderall XR allows me to sit for longer periods of time and does improve my focus, but I find it doesn’t keep me on topic. Sure, I should theoretically be getting more done, but I don’t really see an output difference at work. I find that my mind still goes off on tangents too often and the meds do not allow me to steer control back to task. The ability to focus is improved, just not the control. However, others might have had radically different experiences.REPORT ABUSE
