I started taking Adderal, 2.5 g which is not really a lot. It didn’t really help with my focus, instead I felt restless and somehow nervous and really thirsty. And it made me clench my teeth. I do grind my teeth during nighttime but never experienced this in the daytime. Does it take time to get used to it?

Yes, mg 😅 Good to know. Thank you. I know ppl without ADHD who occasionally take it and was really surprised that it wasn’t helpful for me at all yet

First of all I hope you mean 2.5mg because 2.5g is quite a bit.
Second of all, yes that’s totally normal starting out! It made me shaky and anxious starting, also had a tad of insomnia for the first month. It takes 2-4 weeks for the negative side effects to go away.

I finally took 2 days of PTO that wasn't a sick day or a mental health break from being overwhelmed. I completely disconnected and honestly it made such a huge difference in my personal life.

Highly recommend taking a real break.

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.

Mask mandates in the US for a certain amount of time will never work, it needs to be played like a game. There needs to be a goal (stanley cup) and strict enforcement (referees). Can’t just say “masks should be worn until 12/31”. There’s no incentive to wear a mask since they won’t cut it short if we do well and will extend it if we don’t do well. Also why a national mandate will do nothing. Imagine telling someone in NY they have to keep wearing masks because Cali can’t enforce anything

Hello fellow fishes!

Im trying to understand if I have add/adhd and the internet research is pointing towards a yes.

Im still a masters student and worked a bit (which was a disaster due to excel mistakes and inattentiveness) and have been a struggling inattentive and non focused student since ever..

Would you have any recommendations to better evaluate add/adhd or manage it at this point of time?

Ofc I am going to get professional help in due course but just wanted to know from you all.
