I too had no luck with Adderall. When I reported back that it seemed to do nothing at all, she upped the dose. That gave me such a rapid heart rate that the anxiety over whether my chest was going to explode cancelled out any useful effect. I’m 63, so I can’t brush off such effects thinking they don’t mean anything.

I gave up on medications for over a year and just did Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Helped maybe 10%.

I am starting on the other class of medications, the methylphenidates, tomorrow.

Rosalie, have you started on something different by now?
