Recently I have been diagnosed with autism and I am having a lot of trouble at the office focusing. My senses are completely overloaded all the time. I have much trouble filtering out background sounds and other signals out of my thoughts. All So, I want something that will help me focus and concentrate on the task that I choose. Something that helps me place the background noises on the background. I was suggested mindfulness training, which I gladly accepted. But in my impatience, I want something that helps me right now.


I asked my doctor about methylphenidate, but that was instantly dismissed. According to her it is dangerous for a man my age. (I'm 40 years old and I don't have any cardiovascular condition that I know of.) Something like dexamphetamine would be ideal but is illegal in my country.


What other option are there for me?
