Anyone have experience with Adzenys XR-ODT? Dr recommends I try instead of going back on Adderall time released? Is it just as effective (focus wise)? Are there any abnormal hormone issues (male wise), other side effects experienced?

Anyone else burnt out mentally even with meds? I’m sleeping, eating well, working out every day, on a low dose of meds but my motivation is in the trash. Take frequent breaks too. Brain feels tired

Any recommendations for Telemedicine providers? The tried and true that have been around for years seem best, but the new startups at 30% cost are tempting... just seem scammy (Ahead, Donefirst, etc.)

Does anyone’s ADHD affect their speech? For me it pours into how I try to communicate what happens in my head and I havnt been able to rein it in. It makes leading client meetings impossible.
