I would definitely see an ADHD specialist. Sounds like you may have already. But I never would have found the right medication or dose had I not seen someone with a lot of experience. I am a low dose responder meaning I take 1/3 of the lowest dose manufactured. I also am in the 10% of people that don’t do great on the medication everyone else does well with so I’m now on something most general docs don’t even know about. If you have to travel, do it. Dr Dodson in Denver is awesome.

Time management is hard for me too. I watch 10 minute YouTube videos when I am showering or else I will take 40 minute showers. I find that when I watch tv or listen to tv it helps me stay on track.
