Hey Natha, thanks for your time in replying. I really can relate to a lot of your experiences! I also metabolize very quickly and struggle with stimulant-induced bipolar and stimulant-induced depression symptoms; especially if the doses are higher. The issue is how do you help someone with a super fast metabolism that needs higher doses, yet the problem is the higher doses will further exacerbate other issues.

For me, it becomes a seesaw of pros and cons and unfortunately just what am I willing to deal with on any given day.

I also have adrenal fatigue symptoms and low testosterone related to central sleep apnea, so I am in in a whirlwind of a crisis myself.
