ADHD in Women
I have inattentive ADHD and have an appt tmrw to reevaluate my meds. I work evenings and take 20mg Adderol at 2 pm and then a 10 @ 6:30 to get me through the end of my shift. No problems sleeping and the extended release did not work for me.
I was told by my primary care doc that she couldn’t do anything for me as far as prescribing meds for the am…rather wouldn’t, I’d say, so I’ve switched to a mental health clinic instead. Being on meds helps me so much that it’s very apparent in the am that I’m not taking them. I’m seeing someone differeny tmrw- a nurse who doles out psych meds and she thought previously that a bit of Ritalin in the am may help. Does anyone else mix meds like this?
Also, I’ve only been on meds since August and already the 10 in the evening really isn’t doing much anymore…it’s that normal?
Thanks for any input!
