Maxed out meds, help!
Five years ago at the age of 26 I was diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and my psychiatrist put me on the lowest dose of ritalin. It changed my life. For the better.
Now, at 31, I have maxed out the doses of ritalin, Adderall, Vyvanse and Strattera and none of them work as well as they did when I started taking them. I know that can happen if you take them for long periods of time.
I’ve tried getting off of them all together but then my symptoms get so bad I have to get back on meds to at least take the edge off of the worst of them.
Help! What else can I do to help manage my symptoms??
