My friend’s son had a tough time getting his meds adjusted and just gave up. Unfortunately he has no relief from his condition.
I was prescribed Adderall for my “Inattentive ADD” and it worked for a while.
After about six months it overstimulated some section of my brain and I was a bit of an ass in my lack of patience, etc.
We tried a few other meds and eventually settled on Nuvigil. It has been working well for me.
My point is, keep at it. You know how you feel and those around you be will tell you how you are acting. Keep your doctor informed on both fronts and keep trying, it is worth it! When things are right life is easier.
You are worth it!
