Does time blocking tasks for the day work for anyone? I get caught up, unable to finish tasks within the time block and feel miserable.

To me this is utterly useless. I thrive by leveraging some of my ADHD not fighting it entirely. I know that I can’t do one task for a long time so I just keep a few things going and avoid procrastination by procrastinating each thing by doing a different thing. If I block time I won’t be as productive because I’m just trying to get to the end of the block and I get anxious if my schedule changes

Sometimes yes. As long as nothing distracts me. But you have to be realistic with your time blocks. I feel like putting on a 20 min timer with a small short term goal works better for me

I get anxious when my schedule changes and I’m unable to adhere to the time blocks I created. I prefer to have a general list of things that I expect to get done in a day.

How do you know when to up the dose on your meds? Currently on 40 mg Vyvanse. I usually get the peak euphoria feeling (super alert) about 1 hour after i take my meds and it lasts for a couple of hours. I work late but have noticed that i spend too much time staring at the screen and keep jumping between tasks. Would upping the dose help me concentrate on one task at a time? If not how do you manage this? What tips would you have to prevent the constant back and forth between tasks? TIA

Does anyone ever struggle with when you take a little too much of your adderall (or similar med) & it finally does kick in all at once, your brain starts to overanalyze everything & you get so detailed that it becomes counterproductive? I’m either avoidant & unfocused or hyperfocused & too detailed, it’s equally as unproductive.
