Thanks Penny

Yes, have already read the primer – very helpful.

My psych has raised the dose to 40mg of Elvanse. She did consider adding in Bupropion (Wellbutrin/Zyban) to help with motivation, but was concerned at my ‘excitability’ and consequently higher pulse rate when in a lively state, so I think that has been parked for the time being, until I prove I can control my pulse rate through biofeedback, and remain calm at rest ongoingly.

Quite skin picky still… Managed to bring my sleep time forward by an hour though last night, to 12.30am

So as of yesterday, am on the higher dose, and we’ll see where that leads over the next few weeks…

Thanks for your advice,

Raph.
