I’m not sure why. She said it’s what she usually prescribes first. Maybe because it’s a stimulant? Stimulants have a stigma with some doctors from what I’ve heard from other people. I know someone who’s new doctor refused his prescription for vyvanse for that reason. And this is funny, when I filled the first prescription the pharmacist didn’t have any atomoxetine, he said he hasn’t had any in a while and had to order it.
I have a good tolerance for stims so I will see what she thinks I should try next. I have a family member that takes Wellbutrin with Foquest, which is also a methylphenidate. Who knew that fixing something as simple as the human brain would be so complicated! Of course I kid. Thanks for the input.
