hey i dont think i have ADD/ADHD, but i just have a problem with forcing myself to study for things. i get bored with it often. little bit there i guess. even tho i dont study, i get high grades...but when i do study once in a while, i get even higher ones
anyways, i had a test yesterday and i failed my previous one in that class. it was a GenEd, so i just want to get through it. my friend suggested adderall. ive heard bout it from 100s of different stories at college where people manage to never go to class and just crack the book the night before with some adderall and know more than the people that go to class by test time. i go to class all the time but none of the information was really "sinking in" to my brain so i took the easy way out and just bummed a 10 mg adderall
i gotta say, i studied my friggen arse off and aced the test (and during the test i really didnt get distracted like i usually do in tests). i managed to go through 2 times correcting a bunch of mistakes each time and hten went over it again till i saw not one single error.
yes, adderall is an amazing drug, but i know it can be addictive. i dont want to take it again cuz i couldnt get any sleep later on and i didnt eat for a really long while.
because its mainly that i have a little problem with being distracted (only moderately), is there anything natural/OTC out there i can take to help me study somewhat close to what i did on adderall? someone suggested Ginko, Ginseng, and B12 combo REALLY helps. i know ginseng wakes me up a little, b12 supposedly gives a really good amount of energy, and ginko is more or less ginseng but for your brain. also, i heard something bout dmae or something.
any help will be greatly appreciated. ill probly just pick up some ginko (already have ginseng and b12) and try that out....i just needa find some way to make studying feel more "quick" or somethin
