I was made to switch to Vyvanse by my insurance and I am on 70mg. It has been my least favorite ADHD medicine and I’ve been on a few. It also takes like two hours for it to start working. It sometimes doesn’t seem like it is working.

Is anyone on a low dose of Adderall or a similar stimulant, and do you find it helpful/effective?

When I was diagnosed (at 20 yo) I started on Adderall XR and my psychiatrist essentially took a “keep upping the dose until you feel side effects” approach, even though I still saw some benefits at a lower dose. I’m currently unmedicated and am somewhat hesitant to restart, but feel I could see some benefit and better stability with the help of medication.
