Do you take stimulant medication if you have slept less and wake up with a headache? Even if Ican take a short nap because of wfh, stimulants prevent me from taking a nap and I feel foggy without stimulants and I get a mild heat ache with stimulants and lack of sleep. Please help. Thank you!

If it’s a one off and I have something important to get done I’ll take the medication. If not I’ll skip it and get good sleep.

Taking stims and not sleeping properly can be devastating in the long term.

I can sleep through any stim, I know it sounds weird, but everyone is different. I have real ADHD, I dont take stim for stim, it gives me calm and clean energy.

I generally have insomnia - that is controlled by other meds. Both are issues from teenage. Last 4 years I have other issues, completely unrelated.

Same as M1 - Adderall does not keep me up. I don’t know that caffeine does either if I drink late in day/night. I can and do regularly nap on my medication.

Look into supplements and your vitamin intake — and take as regularly as your medication. If wake up with a headache — add B2, magnesium, CoQ10, cold compress and/or cold face roller.

Also make sure you’re getting exercise, maybe in evening, limiting blue light before bed, etc. good sleep hygiene.

What’s your med and dose?

Adderral 10 mg short acting. I am just starting with medication. Trying to figure out if it is is working.

Are there ways to improve egg quality, I have endometriosis and was on vissan until previous month. Thinking of doing on more round of IVF egg retrieval before placement since I am already 33.

Is anyone on a low dose of Adderall or a similar stimulant, and do you find it helpful/effective?

When I was diagnosed (at 20 yo) I started on Adderall XR and my psychiatrist essentially took a “keep upping the dose until you feel side effects” approach, even though I still saw some benefits at a lower dose. I’m currently unmedicated and am somewhat hesitant to restart, but feel I could see some benefit and better stability with the help of medication.
