Update! I was really struggling to get by without meds so I went back to my doctor and am now on Foquest (I believe it’s formulated like Ritalin but lasts 16 hours) and I’ve noticed such a difference. Turns out Adderall was just the wrong medication and I shouldn’t have tried to stick out those side effects for so long. So there is hope! My doctor said there are tons of options to try and that sometimes one doesn’t work, but another will work well. The struggle to find the right meds is draining but I am feeling so much better and I think Ritalin is better for me personally. Turns out any bad side effects SHOULD go away if you’re taking the right medication and if they don’t, try something else 🙂
