Provigil vs. Adderall for ADD

I take Adderall for ADD, but am growing dissatisfied with it due to what feels like increasing tolerance and dependence, as well as a couple of secondary reasons. I want to talk to my doctor about switching to Provigil, and would like to hear from anybody who has any advice or experience to relate regarding the pros and cons of the two medications. Details within. [more inside]

Swallowing Pills

PillsFilter. You'd think that a woman my age could swallow pills, but you'd be wrong. As I chewed several children's Tylenols this morning, I told myself that there had to be a way to master this skill. I should add that the problem is not the size of the pill, but the actual swallowing-without-chewing bit--even with teensy-tiny pills, my throat closes up. Any suggestions, before I manage to contract some deadly illness that requires the daily ingestion of an entire pharmacy?
