Hi, I’m 36 years old and just got diagnosed with adhd. My psychiatrist doesn’t want to put me on stimulants. I’ve been on Wellbutrin didn’t work and Straterra 40 mg and 80mg. Both 40 and 80 worked at first took it for 3 months. Any advise would be well appreciated. Also I pace all the time can’t stop moving it’s hard to
Sleep at Times. I take something for sleep but it hasn’t been working to well since I started my new job.
Thanks for your help
Psychiatrists bring not only their education & training to work with them, but also their life experiences, values, & biases, too. As we all do. Have you asked your psychiatrist to help you understand why they’ve not suggested a stimulant for the management of your ADHD?
