I don't want anything that is "supposed" to keep me awake. I was given Ritalin in my early 20's do deal with adhd and college. Although I went from F's to A's it made me lethargic and void of personality. I traded focus for spontaneity and creativity. After a few months I discovered that if I sat in the back of the class and bounced up and down I could focus and get A's without drugs. Success and a personality!! I have two undergrad and a master's degree that I earned while bouncing and 100% substance free. Long story short, I don't have any desire to take drugs to counteract side-effects of drugs unless I feel like it would enhance my quality of life. So far therapy and dosage reduction are working. I was just honestly wondering if I was as odd (only as far as rapid reduction..lol) as my doctor made me out to be.
