My understanding is that the adderall (which I haven’t started yet but hopefully by week end) metabolizes out of your system within 24 hours, unlike say an anti-depressant which tends to build up in your body over time. I have been working with a fantastic social worker who helped me through the diagnosis, and every time I leave I feel like I learned a bit more about myself (And my son who was my gateway to diagnosis as an adult). I hope you are able to find a doctor who either a.) gets your diagnosis and can help you or b.) like mine, knows what they don’t know and can refer you to a proper surrogate for the detailed care.
