Hey brother, I’ve been there. Adderall is certainly no joke and comes with a high potential for abuse so its a good sign that your thinking about this stuff so early on. Honestly, not to be giving out medical advice, id give it a month or two, see how its impacting your performance in school and if you don’t feel like its helping much then maybe consider speaking to your psychiatrist. From the way you described your symptoms, it seems like your probably more on the hyperactive side of things so maybe another kind of medication would work better. I am not very hyper myself so I really wouldn’t know. Best of luck with things tho; school is not easy with ADHD.
