Hi!

Up until this point in time I have used stimulant based ADD medications; Adderall, Vivance and Ritalin. These made me on edge and ready to snap at people because of my anxiety. I am now trying non stimulant based add meds. I started with welbutrin but the entire time I was on I could not sleep and I did not like it so I switched to non stimulant based Strattera and am on 20mil. So far I have pretty decent concentration without stopping. Beyond that I’m also not sure if this is the right medication because I don’t know what else I should be looking for.
How do you know if you are taking the right dose? Is there an add treatment sweet spot to aim for?
