I take focalin xr and Ive tried all the other popular meds! I now take 5 mg and wake up clear, go thru my day happy with no anxiety, and feel like Im not overwhelmed with information. I actually can take the info and learn it without crying and giving up! The only down side is tha t I crash @ about 400ish and become anxious and scard. ( I suffer fr panic,anxiety) but Ive gotten such amazing results the other half of the day! My Dr. exp. this weekend and put me on adderall and I hate it! This is my 3rd day bc I wanted to give it a chance but I cant wait to go back on focalin in the morning! Thanks for reading my story and keep trying!!!!!!!!!!!!
