Hi BHLFK

What do your friends and family think about your new medication? My wife is always my go-to person to help me track changes (or a lack there of) when I try new treatments or change existing ones. Sometimes I don’t notice a big change right away myself, but someone else in my life (at work or at home) does. If possible ask someone who knows you well if they think your medication is helping or ask them to keep tabs on your ADHD for a week and report what they find.

Also: Have your thought about ditching your doctor? Each time I’ve had to change doctors or therapists, (due to a move or job change) I’ve had to shop around. Usually it takes me 3, 4, 5 tries to find a match that clicks. Find a doctor who shows aptitude AND respect – ADHD people, like everyone else, deserve both.

Hope that helps! Good luck!
