    First few weeks it made me extremely nauseous and couldn't sleep during the night so I went back to the doctor and told her about how it made me feel. Then she said that I should take it at night and so I did and I now sleep right through the night its been almost 2years now and its been working wonders for me. If I do skip rhen I feel totally disoriented and my adhd is all over the place.
