^ That would be cool. :)
Ritalin works well for me, and I only have to take it once a day.
I would like that. I have to take 3 doses as I can feel it wearing off if I don't.

Yeah, I can feel it a few times a day but it's not that dramatic.I do notice that it's a time release pill.
I know, I know, it's just that I don't know what should be there. :GA:
Could put some awesome Jack quote in there.

I seriously wish I could take it again!
I don't hold grudges, you just become irrelevant.

My doctor is concerned about my age and my rapid heartbeat combined.  If I had continued with ritalin I would have had to take a low dose beta blocker as well.  Yoga helps my concentration, but, some days my brain is a bloody whirlwind of crowded thoughts.  And thats when I wish I had it again.   <sigh> Getting older sucks some days.

You SHOULDN'T generally mix stimulants and beta-blockers. Not to treat....gah..well what happens is that with beta adrenergic receptors blocked that released noradrenaline/adrenaline is still there and it has to bind SOMEWHERE, so it can occur  that you get an essentially unopposed alpha-adrenoreceptor stimulation leading to a paradoxically, increased vasoconstriction.


Generally more of a problem at higher doses but with a pre-existing heart problem...I'd talk to your doc about that.

Has anyone got any experience with clarity or clarity-H?
I was mildly curious. Am a bit wary of stuff with ginseng in it. :P
