I spent years doing different drugs ti try and help me cope with life before i was diagnosed.

I now take 56mg of slow release xenidate and have am really feeling the benefit.

Motivation, organisation and self worth have all become more of a continuous path istead of the opposite without meds.

My advice would be to try it for yourself and see if you benefit as I have had.

I might add that I was exteemely doubtful about meds when my son was diagnosed at 8 years old, And as I had gone to a school for malajusted chilren, I thought that he should be dealt wirh cognitively. I was very wrong. He has also come on leaps and bounds over the last few years and is excelling at last.

Good Luck.
