Medications help curb sleepines/flat on dex?

Hi all,

I seem to be one of those people who can fall asleep for an hour or 2 after 10mg of dex and once it starts to kick in and feel pretty flat on it. Everything else is far better than anything ive been given over the years... Just oddly too relaxed, which is sorta enjoyable for a change, but it wont be when uni starts in 8 weeks so i need to get it sorted.

What options are there that can help lift me up energy wise? Im in oz so my only other choice in terms of stimulants is ritalin and i much prefer dex even still. Dont feel depressed at the moment so dont think its that, just prefer to sit around reading something.

Armodafinil is an option here if my doctor will prescribe it but after doing some reading sounds like mixed reports and most people dropped it. Otherwise i have no idea really, happy to hear whatever people have found or heard/think works.

In addition to the dex ive take bcaa/essential amminos, l-carnitine, and just the usual mag/zinc/b/multi vitamins. Also tried 1tsp of Baking soda which was great in that it makes it last longer but no change in the area i need it. Caffeine usually bring on anxiety so thats gone now too. Anyway any help would be great so i can at least see my GP with some choices.
