Comment:
This drug helps me more with depression than any of the anti-depressants I have been prescribed. It also makes the ADHD pretty much non-existant. One side effect that I like is it severely increases libido! Some of the other meds im on make it hard to get in the mood, but when I take my dextro, im soooo ready. :)

Comment:
I am a college student and have been taking this medication for about 9 months now. I find it very helpful when it comes time to write papers and study. It also helps on a daily basis with paying attention in lectures and not spacing off.
