Ask your doctor if you can try a different medication. It might not have that same side effect.

Yes. My fingers!!! It’s so bad

Yep yep… I became a plant person when my eyebrows almost disappeared during bar prep. When I want to pluck, I prune my plants - if the plants survive, I’m allowed to pluck 🤣

I pick my face and it is so embarrassing I look like a teenager with acne. There’s this place in NY that does 30min express facials so I started getting those to treat myself for not picking. It’s easier not to touch my face knowing I have an appointment already scheduled. Plus my skin loves me now.

Dear female partners with kids: I'm an immigrant and all the women from earlier generations were either stay at home moms or worked for the sake of providing, rather than being career women.

All that to say, I don't have ppl I can turn to that are doing both successfully. How difficult is it to balance? what trade-offs did you have to make?

Just stopping by to say that after trying a handful of different things, I successfully cut my dosage down a bit (while maintaining similar focus at work) by taking a week-long vacation and not taking any Adderall. My body was starting to build up a tolerance to my meds, but the “detox” timed with a vacation has been working so far!

I finally got diagnosed with ADD, inattentive type, at 28 years old. I’ve known I had depression and anxiety for years, but the symptoms and treatment never added up. It took WFH in a pandemic to realize maybe I had ADD, and still months of being dismissed and made to feel like I was crazy before I found a doctor to administer the MMPI. I feel validated, finally, but I can’t help feeling grief too over so much lost potential and unnecessary failure, especially in law school and my career.

I have a prescription for Vyvanse. Even without Vyvanse, I have diagnosed generalized anxiety. On top of that, depression runs in my family. It’s not a diagnosis, but I suspect it’s there. Vyvanse certainly doesn’t help the anxiety, especially when I’m coming down off it for the day. I want to ask my doctors about an anti-anxiety/depression meds, but does anyone here take ADHD meds and those other meds at the same time? I’m worried about the drug interactions/potential physical effects. TIA.

Has anyone has success taking vyvanse every three days or every other day? Typically take 50mg daily but the side effects have become difficult - trouble falling asleep, increase in anxiety- but not taking it isn’t an option for me as it’s nearly impossible for to stay focused with work. Just curious about others experiences before I raise with my doctor.

I just saw an ad for an app called inflow that’s supposed to help manage adhd and create strategies to address things like putting off and staying on task. It’s $22 a month which is cheaper than a coach but more expensive than a planner. Odds that it will actually help vs. being another recurring charge that I keep putting off canceling because of my executive dysfunction?

After nearly a decade at disorganized small firms where I wore many hats (and sometimes nearly every hat!), I accepted a biglaw offer as part of a team of maybe a dozen Legal Secretaries. This firm invests a lot into training and staffing, which I think would be great for an ADHDer like myself. The firm has great Glassdoor reviews and everyone I have spoken to so far seems really happy there. But I am still nervous about the transition straight to biglaw. Any advice?

I am a woman with pretty severe ADHD. I’ve taken medicine pretty much every day since I was diagnosed as a child. Currently I take Vyvanse with 10 mg Adderall. Even with the medicine, I sometimes I feel like I’m barely a functioning adult. My SO and I maybe want kids but I’m terrified of 1) do I have to stop medicine while pregnant and breast feeding, 2) could I even do my job without medicine, and 3) could I really take care of a baby?!? I’d love to hear other’s experiences or thoughts! Thanks!
