I have been through a bevy of meds.
Many of them were quite un-helpful.
My psychiatrist was less than convinced that there was an “Inattentive” variant of ADD.
His “go to” fixit med was Ritalin, Adderall or some other version of the usual stimulants.
Unfortunately those stimulants over-stimulated another part of my brain and that turned me “ash hole-ish” and I was quite impatient with people.
So much so that people were asking my wife if I was OK?
Due to his inability to acknowledge my “Inattentive ADD” I changed doctors and was prescribed Nuvigil.
It worked well but gave me a tendency to talk too much (could be seen as “Mania” but since I can suppress it, it poses no problem).
Provigil worked better and is what I’m taking today (less tendency to be over chatty).
