Concerta FTW

Without Concerta, I spend about 20 minutes settling down with the books aligned appropriately, the chair getting comfy, the note cards, pens and pencils all stacked and sorted; then another 20 minutes actually figuring out which problems I want to work on for which subject; then another 20 minutes looking at my surroundings (lipoproteins); then about that time it's time for a bathroom break and on the way back and perusal through the JAMA magazines and finally, back to my seat 1.5 hours after I arrive.

With Concerta, I spend about 5 minutes getting my crap out, putting the book down, opening to the problems set I want to work out, another 5 minutes getting my molecule set out and aligned to study butane structures, or cyclohexane; and 7 hours on my glutes sitting on one chair in the library getting the homework done.

'nuff said :)

Ha, sounds like quite the difference. Glad you know what works for you.

Glad to hear you've found something that works for you.

My husband has tried countless approaches and has never achieved an optimum concentration level.

@ Penelope: it has been a godsend... if only I'd have had it 40 years ago!!
