About 4 years.

ADD or ADHD?
ADHD-PI

Ever increased dosage to acheive the initial results (tolerance)?
No.

Do you take more dex during overwhelming periods?
Certainly not. I take it as prescribed, full stop.

Improve short/long term memory?
Short-term, absolutely. Long-term, not sure.

Has your ability to talk coherently improved?
I never had a problem with that to begin with.

Has your ability to relax improved?
Yes. Now my brain slows down enough for me to take a moment and...ooh, a bunny!

Do you feel more connected with others?

I feel alternately connected and disconnected with others, and dex didn’t change that.

Yes, no question.

Neither.

Experienced any oddities whilst on dex?
Nothing outside of my usual side effects and the effects of dex whilst over-tired.
