Why do you feel you need the meds now that you’re not working? Personally, I would talk to your doc about weaning yourself off of them. Perhaps you feel like you can’t function without them since you’ve been on them for so long. My husband, although younger than you, had severe adhd as a child. Instead of medication he was on a strict “clean” diet. It helped a little but he just learned to cope. Today he is very successful in his field. His adhd has helped him work very efficiently in his demanding job.
I’d talk to your doc.
