First day on Concerta. Took as prescribed. One of the possible side-effects is drowsiness? WTF? That is exactly the condition for which I am taking the damn things.

We will see if I can manage to know feel like sleeping from 9 to 11, and 1 to 3 today. Dammit, I would still prefer the provigil based on the drug information. I wonder if the Dr. office can just f'ing lie to the evil insurance [ insert explicative of choice here - I was thinking of using "dildo" just now, but that would be a grave disservice to sex toys everywhere ] and tell them I have the machine and they should give me my Doctor's first choice in drugs. Perhaps if these do not work I can convince my doctor to get things done via social engineering. Hell, it is how I get half of my work done around here.

More later.

Here's my guess... It might have a startling effect when it wears off in some people. OR More likely is that in children and adults with ADD - some medicines, especially medicines that cause drowsyness or alertness, tend to have opposite effects.

F'rinstance - Children given sudaphed will get hyper, adults will get drowsy.

Well, I didn't do the whole head-bobbing thing during work, but I can do that on a few days. Not the majority, but a few. I did feel fuzzy a couple of times though. I did not notice a change in my concentration level. Of course, this could be a placebo too.... :)
