So medication has been revolutionary for me. The last few months I have felt so much better / confident in doing my job. The last few days / last week I’ve felt like I haven’t taken my meds (I have lol) in that I haven’t been able to concentrate and the self-doubt has flown back. Any advice?

A1 is right, talk to your doctor. That being said, you probably need a dosage adjustment

Yup. Sounds like a dosage adjustment

As others have said dose adjustment.

I found an appropriate dosage during college then once I started in consulting I had to get an additional adjustment due to my hours. Hopefully that’s all you need as well

Thanks for sharing. I’ve got a few weeks off over the holidays so I’m hoping that will reset any tolerance I may have developed. My meds do wear off around 6pm so the evening hours can be a grind. I’ll speak with my psych. I am nervous about increasing because I’m not on a huge dose but higher doses gave me bad palpitations, sweats, anxiety etc

as others have said, chat with your doctor! but in my experience, i have noticed that my meds “don’t work” when i don’t eat properly. taking vitamin c in the morning (orange juice, fruit bowl, etc. ) with your medicine can render it ineffective. also when i feel a strange mid-morning slump after taking my adderall dose, i drink a protein shake and it seems to kick back in! these meds are very interconnected with a proper diet.

i hope so too! it’s tough out here for us ADHD folks. wishing you well, anonymous friend!

I've always had trouble with things like attention, focusing, and feeling constantly overwhelmed. I started to feel hopeless, feeling burnt out (even worse than my old job). I spend hours diverted when I know I should get work done. I decided to get an evaluation after learning a lot more about ADHD. I was diagnosed as Primarily Inattentive and they are starting me on meds immediately. Will things get better from here? Will, I finally become a productive human being? Should I tell my manager?
