The first day I felt like I had drank a whole pot of coffee, except without the shakes and without the anxiety. So basically just the energy. I could feel it when it finally got to my brain-I felt lifted up, in really good spirits, excited about life. It was basically like an all day hyperfocus for the first few days. Got tons of stuff done.

I was actually a little worried it was too strong for me in the beginning because I was so “up” and lost my appetite, then when it wore off in the evening I got a headache and was cranky.  But after just a few days it sorta normalized.

Now I don’t really feel it “kick in” I just know that I have the motivation to start work tasks that I used to procrastinate for hours about.  I wouldn’t say it’s helped my organization any, but I get less distracted and can get things done in a more timely manner.

It’s not a cure-all miracle drug, I still definitely have issues, but I can certainly tell it has helped with keeping me on task at work. And this may sound silly, but I notice things more often. Things that used to blend into the background I’m actually aware of.

I used to leave my office to go somewhere and have to come back in 5 or 6 times a week because I forgot keys, phone, something. I think I’ve only done that a handful of times since I started taking the medicine. It’s a small thing, but there are lots of small things and they add up.
