Terri (2 years ago):
I am a 24 year old, female with ADD and my psychiatrist recently prescribed me to Nuvigil. I have found myself much more focused, alert and have been told by colleagues they have noticed a huge improvement in my work and ability to stay on task! I feel this medicine is great and has done wonders for me with no side effects! I suffer from anxiety so this wAs a big concern for me. Gratefully, it has not affected my anxiety at all!!! I recommend this medication to anyone with ADD looking for alternative medications than the usual.

- Belviq (lorcaserin) and adderall (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine)
I have been on Adderall for more than a year and I have recently started taking Belviq. For some reason a lot of doctors worry about a serious interaction between the two, in my experience the two get along just fine. Adderall helps me stay focused, while Belviq suppresses appetite.

From this study (8 months ago):
I have Raynaud's syndrome, but even while in the office, my arms feel like they are immersed in ice water; my right leg will periodically "buckle" and wobble at the knee while I'm standing at a kitchen counter getting my food ready; my alarm goes off at 6:30, and about 2 days during the week, I hit the snooze button the max # of times and am late for work

I have sydenhams, dystonia and raynards. I have all from rhuematic fever, once you get one autoimmune disease my specialist says its not unusual to get others... the only thing that helps is living in Spain and in the winter gloves and socks!
