    I've never heard of that. Is it an SSRI?

    Its time release methylphenidate. Ritalin. It might make you manic. And will almost certainly make you more manic, more often. But hey... manias are great! ;)

    Yeah but its upping teh dopamine, and not only in areas that control selective attention. Just be cautious.

    Congrats civicmom.

    I have been on concerta for a while now, the difference is like night and day. Nothing else worked - now I can concentrate at school, at work etc., and actually get shit done on time. Hell I can even concentrate enough to do the dishes before I run out of clean ones :rofl:

    Only side effect I have is no appetite at all. Tis ok though, I remember to eat.

    Good luck.

    I'm in the same boat. I eat to make the hunger pains go away, that's it. :) It's a nice problem to have I suppose.
