The lowest dose of generic Adderal plus Wellbutrin seems to work for me. BUT LET me positively say that Meditation, even 5 minutes a day, is of great use for when I notice the rise of scattered thinking (noticing when it begins). Do you recognize when you are starting to loose it?

*I find I take LESS of those medications now as the calming effect and focus provided by practicing meditation, exercising in the form of weeding the soil in preparation for a Spring garden and noticing my food intake provides for a calmer state of mind. No Fake food here!

It’s helpful to recognize and write it down, to help you remember and create a trail of breadcrumbs as to what REALLY works for you. We’re are all special, unique and life continues. It can be good. Let me salute YOU! in your search for wellness.
