I didn't do adderall but vyvanse which is the same but has another ingredient so that it is slower activating and longer lasting through the day. I liked it a lot but had headaches every afternoon when I was at my optimal dose (40mg).

I also had decreased appetite but was able to manage with my increased willpower support from the meds :)

the headaches had me stop the drug but if it weren't for those I'd still take it every day.

I've been at my current company 3 years without a significant raise (while several men I work with have had raises and promotions) and I'm wondering if I'm losing out on a higher potential salary or earning potential by staying this long? Should I be looking to move on to another company that actually promotes women or should I fight for a raise here? Confused. Looking to go from an associate position to a manager position.

Happy Friday. Just a reminder of a few things:

- ADHD is a disability, but it’s not the end of the world
- give yourself a break. Your brain needs it more than you realize
- medication is not a cure-all treatment. Medication + diet + exercise + self-organization is the key.
- ADHD causes us to feel emotions stronger than the average person.
- failure is inevitable, but so is success. Act accordingly, and be kind and fair to yourself
- life is hard, but that’s… wait, what was I saying? 😂😎❤️

Hey all,
Anyone else feel like this. I love consulting and doing different things and the fast paced nature but sometimes it’s too fast.

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.

For example, I know people who were diagnosed younger have had to battle with not feeling like they need meds to work effectively vs those getting access and diagnosis later having to trial and error while learning about it all fresh.
