I've taken them first for math and then they began helping me with my writing and my grades were improving. Far more consistent and better listening skills are also benefits from my medicine. Is there anything I should be aware of? I have taken them for ten years straight. So they aren't nearly as affective of course but I'm not going to higher the dose just more dependence! I don't think I have a dependence I rely on adhd medicine to continue my consistency and my accuracy.
