Well, after a long hiatus off meds, I have gone back on Ritalin. I've currently titrated up to 120mg a day in 30mg doses 4x a day and am still experiencing some symptoms. I suppose I could try an amphetamine, but I'm wondering what your experiences on adding it to stimulants? What does it add that stimulants fall short of?

I would like to know the answer to this, too. A doc I no longer see prescribed me Clonidine to help with sleep. I see someone different now and no longer have the script but I found I liked to take a little bit during the day because it helped to decrease my sensitivity and hyper-arousal. It also helped with sleep. I'm considering asking my doc for another prescription but am confused about how exactly it helps along side stimulants (according to common knowledge) and also confused about the differences between guafacine, Intuive, Tenex and the other one. Which would should I ask for? Do these work the same as Clonidine? Don't mean to hyjack the OP. Just curious.
