Anybody had crazy thoughts/was very irritable on days you don’t take adderall? I take IR and wondering if XR would help or another type of medication?

Irritable yes, yes, yes, crazy thoughts, no!

Anyone combine ADHD meds with Nootropics? I do a lot of work in the startup/VC community and it seems everyone in that world is obsessed with nootropics. They have private message boards, meetups, etc., just to discuss the topic. I know at least a half dozen companies that have very active Slack channels on the topic where everyone from the CEO on down debates various cocktails, programs, brands.

Am I missing something? Last I read the research was VERY inconclusive.


ADHD advice and suggestions for consistent high-performance on an important 60-80 hour work week project?… Medikinet (concerta) helps with focus but makes you feel bit more tired/lazy, so would you add a bit of modafinil? Anyone mixed these two?


Do any other 🐠 fall within the inattentive subtype? Although we share a lot of the same symptoms as our hyperactive counterparts, I think there are some huge differences in diagnoses. If so... cont’d


Newly diagnosed & medicated and new to consulting.
I’m great with clients but getting bad evaluations because I’m slow to produce work and don’t take time to communicate status.
I’m trying really hard but I keep getting stuck in perfection loops and scared to share things before they’re perfect.

Did you struggle with this & find a way to improve? I’m terrified I’m going to get counseled out, but I love this job so much.

Does anyone suspect a bit of an adderall abuse issue in our industry. Some of these people are a liiiiitle bit strung out a lot. So much fast talking, no eating. Or is it just coffee? What’s up?


Anyone had sexual performance issues on generic adderal (dextroamphetamine) that made a switch to something else and didn’t have those issues? I only take my meds 2-3 times a week to avoid the lethargy, but by that second or third time in a week I have issues.


Any recommendations for support groups that have an active online community?

Did I act irrationally here? I had an initial consultation with a therapist the other day to get a referral to a psychiatrist for BD + ADHD. I've called them to get the appointment set up but no response. So today, I found a new provider and was able to get an appointment booked directly with a psychiatrist next Wednesday.... Do I just tell the other provider I'm no longer interested?

Actions are probably bc of ADHD....🙃

Hello- new to the group. I was diagnosed with ADHD as a child and felt like I had everything pretty under control until recently. I have been feeling so uninspired it’s hard for me to stay focused even with my meds. I can’t tell if it’s burnout or something else. My confidence has plummeted and feel like I have no passions anymore. Any advice would be more than welcomed!


I'd love to create a sticky post here where we can share what technology tools we use to do our job better as Adhd consultants.

How did you get your SO to better understand ADHD? We’re getting married and he’s very patient and understands with me. Just wondering if there is a resource to help him understand that this is an executive function disorder and my brain is wired differently.


Was on adderall throughout college, but didn’t like how my body responded to it. After joining the workforce full-time, I think I need to start medication again. Any softer meds that work for you?
