I started on Ritalin when I was 9 and switched to Adderall around age 15. I’ve now been on Adderall for 14 years successfully. I would encourage you to remember, what works for one won’t work for all. And the best thing you can do is find a doctor who you feel comfortable enough with to have open conversations as you try various meds. If you ever feel like you’re not being listened to or heard, it may be time to find another provider.

Also, a few natural coping strategies have been super helpful for me. Making sure I drink enough water and being careful about my diet have been life-changing. Also, a therapy light really helps with focus. And essential oils are amazing when treating ADHD!! (My favorite is Grapefruit). Hope this helps!
