I’m on 40 mg/day right now and have been for the past month or so. One thing I can see is that my body gets used to it very quickly. I started at 10 mg (I think) to test it. Within a week I was up to 20 and within another week up to 30 and so on. I have noticed over the past couple of weeks that the effects are wearing off earlier each day so I may bump it up to 60 mg/day or try another medication. I am 33 and was diagnosed when I was 25 but my own stubbornness wouldn’t let me believe it. This is the first medication I have tried so I am not 100% sold on it yet especially for the ridiculous cost of it. My car payment is less than my prescription is! There’s no doubt it has had played a major positive role over the past few months though. I’m not saying it’s just the med’s that did this but in the past month I have quit drinking, smoking, started hittin’ the gym and eating healthy. I was very underweight for my height and in the past few weeks have already put on 12 pounds. I have not seen any decrease in appetite but that could be as a result of not smoking.

And yes Orion, I agree it makes me a little speedy too after a couple hours of taking it. I have also noticed that coffee and stim’s DON’T MIX! I keep trying to drink my morning coffee (it’s all I have left dammit!!!) but find myself even more wound up than I would be off the med’s. Not to mention I have dramatically heightened anxiety and I’m sweatin’ like a bastard on top of that. Coffee is next on the kick-list to give it a true clear-headed diagnosis.
