Hi, I’m a pretty late-diagnosed adult (fifties) – misdiagnosed since forever, mostly with anxiety issues, since my twenties. Have been prescribed Elvanse 30mg to start with and I really and honestly don’t think it’s doing anything. Was super-excited to be diagnosed and have been so looking forward to feeling different – less hyper, less manic, calmer, etc. etc.- but… a bit low now. Maybe the dose is wrong? – I have an appointment (by phone, of course) to discuss it in a couple of weeks. But if 30 mg is doing NOTHING surely even the top dose – which I think I read is 70 mg – won’t change my life. All advice gratefully accepted!!!
