Has anyone else tried Strattera, had success, and a few months later felt like work was a struggle again? Am I imagining it? There are reasons why I should not take stimulants, but I miss that feeling of being a “regular” person at work and so am curious if others have had a similar journey and where you all ended up

It does happen definitely. Are you under more stress currently? I’ve had better luck with concerta myself.

Yes! Tried Staterra for a couple months. Found it helpful for the first month or so but then it gave me worse anxiety. Doc and I agreed I should go off it. She suggested Concerta but I haven't decided to try it yet

Interesting! Thanks for the input. Would say I’m under more stress than before, roughly the same hah

I haven't tried it. I have only tried ritalin and adderall. I feel as though the adderall isn't working for me anymore and it feels like I am back to square one. I really hate that my doctor might have to give me a higher dosage.

For those who were diagnosed as an adult can you provide some insight into how you were able to obtain a diagnosis.
