Concerta, Straterra, Adderal, Focalin… I’d have some brief relief but the effects never seemed to last. I’m on Ritalin now and it seems that I’m once again at the point where I can’t tell the difference when I’m on or off the meds. This stinks.
I think he is looking for you to assess what specific outcome you want the medicine to help you with. It won’t help you start or finish anything on its own. You have to ask yourself, “how will this drug help me achieve my goals?” It might allow you to sit there longer and work on something, thus, completing a task. Dr. J probably just wants you to think strategically and map out what your desired outcomes are and what the best ways of getting there might be.
