Comment:
started at 18 mg, then 40 mg, just started the 60 mg. Entering my third week on meds. I take for ADD. I have noticed a slight decrease in appetite. I rated effectivness with 3 stars because I am still in the beginning stages. I do feel an improvement in my ability to focus. Look forward to it getting better and better.
