Hello, I am 50 I just got diagnosed six months ago. Like everyone else, I knew I had it all of my life but was too busy taking care of everyone else and let my needs suffer. Vyvanse didn’t work for me, so then I was switched to Adderall also starting on 30 mg, now at 50IR. I’m going to extended release when I see my dr next because it wears off too fast. I recommend listening to the magazine’s podcast, so many good tips there on how to manage work, organization, and lots of episodes are not feeling shame in managing medication. But geez I guess there are a lot of us getting diagnosed later!
