    Uh, take the medication to focus. Then study.

    Problem solved.

    Force yourself to study. If you keep on doing that, then your attention span will slowly increase. It's like lifting weights.

    Take your med.
    Clear off your desk of clutter.
    Position your desk so it faces a wall.
    Turn off TV, computer, cell phone, music, whatever can distract you either visually or through sounds
    Just you, your book, notes-study for 30 min
    Do it again, lengthening the times until it is effortless to sit and complete a task.
    The trick is training yourself to focus and to get work done.
    Rinse, lather, repeat.
    Good Luck.

    Do you have the iPhone or iPod touch? If so, there are a lot of apps that work on increasing applications. I have one, (I can't remember what it's called, I'll edit and get the name for you after I find my phone) that plays some sort of sound that is supposed to improve memory and concentration. And you just listen it to it for 15+ minutes a day.

    I don't know whether it actually works or if it's the power of suggestion, but I've found that it has definitely helped.

    Turn off electronics. Unless, of course, you have to type something ....
