I am also struggling with trying to find the right medication for me. I am 49 and recently diagnosed. I also have Depression and Anxiety. I have tried Adderall and now trying Ritalin. I also take Lexapro. A friend talked me into trying medical marijuana but I don’t know if it’s for me but it helps a lot with relaxing and changed my perception of well, analyzing what was bothering me. I think maybe CBD might be better. The last time I talked to my Psychiatrist he recommended to be cautious with getting too dependant on marijuana (constant use), try CBD. It might help and anything that helps reduce amphetamine use is good. (I have intermittent tachicardia)
