That’s my life exactly! I was referred to a specialist about 11 months go, on a very long waiting list. Yes I think hormonal changes make me worse, I don’t do stress or boredom.

Only ever been prescribed antidepressants, tried every one! They do not work for adhd. I want to try a stimulant drug to see if it makes a difference.
Consult your doctor if you think the med / dosage doesn’t suit you, there will be a bit of trial and error involved before you get the right meds. Hope that helps x
