Hang in there – you will find the right combination of medication!
I agree you could try switching to another stimulant, but something I might recommend is asking your doctor if you should take another low dose, short acting stimulant in the afternoon. That may keep you from crashing so early and when you do eventually crash it may be less noticeable.
Something else that might help in my experience is exercise in the morning.. and if you drink caffeinated beverages either cut back or quit.
