Thank you. Yes, I love my therapist. He’s wonderful and really helps me find solutions for my ADHD, but unfortunately, he can’t prescribe the meds. This is about the only doctor in the area that will, and I had to wait three months to get in to see him for a diagnosis. I’ve been doing a lot of research on my own, and talking with other people about what works for them. I definitely think the first dosage was way too high, but it did not improve my ability to focus and I was extremely depressed. I think I don’t respond well to Adderrall. I’m wondering if a lower dosage of the other type of stimulant would be a better fit, at a lower dose, and taken only when I need it.

Yeah…the RX prices are ridiculous. $120/month for the Straterra. 🙁
