I am having a similar problem with my doctor. I am taking amphetamine salts ,15 mgs/ 2 times a day.
I don’t have any side effects from it,. On the plus side it helps calm my anger issues and am seeing it helping my awareness just a little.
I am not sure how much or to what extent that drugs can help ADD, and I don’t think my doctor knows either. So it is frustrating to want to help “ NOW” and the doctor wants to take it slow. I am going to start taking more days off to see if my body is just getting used to the drug and maybe the present dose might work better?! I don’t Know, worth a try and probably better for my body at the same time as
Amphetamines are addictive.
