    I've taken a variety of doses of this medication for about 10 years. My friends, teachers, and family say that they can tell the difference but, I don't feel any different. I am more hungry not less. I have lots of anxiety and depression which my doctor said the medication was supposed to help but, it hasnot. It's really easy to take. I really liked taking it in apple sauce as a child. ... Show Full Comment

He's in honors classes, competition choir, and theatre everyday and was having a hard time focusing on it all. He is on a 50mg dose but noticed that around 3pm he was starting to lose focus again.
