Thanks for the advice! Sadly there are no other amphetamines registered in the Netherlands.
I guess I’ll just have to accept it. It is just so difficult when you know how great things were with the old medication, but knowing that’s not going to be possible anymore. It’s been three months since I was forced to switch and I still cry when I think about how I used to thrive and was on the way to finally gettting my life together. I was doing so well.
I do have one other option, which is dextro-amfetamine extended release, but it’s not covered by insurance and I just really can’t afford it.
Really having trouble not throwing a pity party for myself 🙂
