Hello, I’m new here but not new to ADHD. I was diagnosed as a child when there was not a lot of information about it. Being a girl, it was rare for a girl to be diagnosed. I’m 44 years old now. I take Vyvanse in the morning (early), Wellbutrin, Adderall in the afternoon. I work 10-hour days and need to focus and pay attention to details. I have tried them all and yes, there is no one-size-fits-all medication regime. I find diet and exercise to be very helpful as well. For me a low-carb lifestyle works best to help me feel my best.
