That’s really interesting! I was dx and started Adderall in my 40’s. I have always enjoyed dancing, music, and played piano as a child, but was not intensely musical. I have sung in choirs off and on as an adult.

I found that Adderall helped me in choir, because it was easier to keep up with my part in the sheet music and not skip lines or get muddled. So that made it more enjoyable and less stressful in that way. I haven’t noticed an increased appreciation for music, in fact it’s easier to tune out background music.

But I will give it a shot and see if the subjective experience is different. Of course, the problem with a subjective experience is that if you’re intentionally *looking* for it, that changes the experience automatically! I’ll give it a try and reply back.

(if I remember to reply back, LOL)
