Adderall generic seems to work for me. First thing in the AM and again at 4 PM.
I know this seems wacko. I started taking the afternoon dose after reading numerous articles about this diagnosis. I was extremely interested in the ability to sleep well. Taking it late afternoon allows me to finish up projects, enough so that my brain can check out and get a good night sleep. Taking the second dose from noon to 2, didn’t provide the calm of completion and the true rest I needed.
Good luck with your path. Be sure to get out and walk. Exercise clears the pathways of the brain too.
