How did you get a doctor to prescribe it long term? I have a psychiatrist and he wants to pull it after about 8 months on it. It seems to be the only drug or even supplement that helps anymore. My brain otherwise feels like it is on fire with electrical signaling and my mind races without it. It also helps depression/anxiety just as much as physical exercise tolerance, so there is some crossover in psychological and physical for me. What kind of doctor do you go to? I only take 1.25mg per day, i feel like i need a bit more, I mean it works, but my brain still feels overstimulated quite a bit. And just fwiw, my energy went from not being able to do anything AT ALL except lay around to being able to drive around/ walk slowly a mile per day every day as well as be social a few times a week.
