I wonder if you would end up building a tolerance regardless due to having to take the medication at least twice a day. Either that or it goes so fast through you there isn’t enough time to build up a tolerance. These are both WILD assumptions so I would take it with a grain of salt haha. I’m in an unfortunate situation where all I can do is wait to see a different doctor and stick to Concerta for now. I keep hearing about Adderall’s potency when it comes to suppress certain symptoms but also hear about bad side effects and tolerance.
The frustrating thing for me is I’ve spent my whole life not knowing you can actually function properly and now that I see that I can, I also wave it bye-bye incredibly fast haha.
