OTC Focus

T+ 0:00
2 g oral Tyrosine (pill / tablet)
  T+ 8:30   smoked Cannabis  
I have been struggling with focus in my university courses for over a year now since I began taking oxycodone for a herniated disc.

5:30pm:Starting with 2x 1000mg tablets (playing halo with friends)
5:45pm: No subjective effects
6:00pm: Increase in heart rate (not enough to cause concern)
6:20pm: Completely 'dialed in' to the game. I felt like I had taken a dose of approx 10mg Adderall Xr without the peripheral side effects (jitters, anxiousness, etc.). I was focused and my concentration was unchanged by the usual distractions.

7:00pm: no signs of diminishing effects
8:00pm: going strong
9:00pm: effects starting to wear off but still noticeably more focused than usual.
9:00pm: effects starting to wear off but still noticeably more focused than usual.

10:00pm: focus is almost completely diminished but I still feel wired
12:00pm: No sleep in sight for me this evening, but I don't care. It seems like I've found an over the counter remedy for my more sluggish days.
2:00am: Finally ready for bed after smoking a few bowls of my favorite weed

Overall experience was great. No awful side effects other than an increased heart rate that was no more intense than after a large coffee. Unexpected amount of concentration was gained after taking tyrosine. I say it's worth at shot at $20.00 CDN for a bottle of 60x 1000mg tablets.
