is there anyone who has taken guanfacine who can tell me what the effects are. mainly, does it increase alertness similarly to stimulants. i have adhd-pi and i'm not sure if it will make me better or worse.

It is not at all similar to stimulants. It has not increased my alertness, but I was not looking for anything to increase alertness. It seems to help my memory (both long and short-term). It makes me feel tired at night, which I like. I sleep much better now.
