I just switched to this drug from taking vyvanse and it seems to be working well although it may be to soon to tell. I suffer from manic depression and I find this drug keeps my mood stabalized. It tremendosly helps me to focus at work and to stay in my seat as to where before I was away from my desk about half the time. It may be to soon to tell but I am so far pleased

I took this for many years before I lost my insurance. I was in college at the time and it helped me tremendously stay focused on my academics.
