The side effects well out-did the positive effects for me. I had nausea and the feeling of being "trapped", like I was in a straight jacket. Once again, I may be a special case - so don't use my judgement as your only outlook on the medicine. All medicines affect different people in different ways.

Pros

Prescribed for ADHD since the 1960s.

Like any stimulant, there are risks included a faster heart rate.
