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.

I take only 5mg per day and it allows me to interact with people in a much more normal way than my typical reactions. I am friendlier, more polite, kinder, etc. More of the positive attributes associated with a "nice" person. I'm not keen on having to look for another medication, though I might have to due to having Dextro taken off druggist shelves.

I am a college student at a top university with ADD. I was only diagnosed a few months ago, but this drug has changed my life! I have more energy and because I can pay attention to my classes, I find everything more interesting and I am having less issues waking up and getting to class. My only warning is that it does cause some sleep issues, and it definitely increases your anxiety level.
