I have been extremely irritated at everything. It seems to keep me awake but I get very irritated? Haven't seen anyone else saying they are taking this medicine for narcalepsy. Is anyone?
i have read that focalin is simular to adderal, a medication used to treat adhd, my son had this condition and still does, he is 22 now but when he was first diagnosed, he was young like 11, he was getting into trouble in school cause of being so hyper and not sitting still etc... i took him to a pediatric doc and that's when they ran test and diagnosed him with adhd and put him on adderal, he hated it all the symptoms u are describing are the ones that he was complaining about, he was only on it for a week so i told him to give it a few more weeks, like other meds u have to get use to it, but he never did, he couldn't sleep, he was always snapping out etc... i am not saying u issue is the same i am saying the drugs are simular so i would talk to your doctor about it, at one point my son actually told me when he got older that when he was on adderal he felt like he was speeding, i guess that's why this med is being abused on the streets! i hope u talk to ur doc and get the advice and get on the right med to make u feel better, in the meantime u can look up the medication an see it's side effects etc...
