A bit of this, a bit of that; ADHD at it's finest.
So, yesterday I went to an appointment hoping to find my “magic pill”. What I got was a new ADHD medicine. Not exactly new to me, I have taken Strattera before. It is a non stimulant and doesn’t work nearly as well as Ritalin, for example.
I’ve opted to give Strattera another try because I’d like to not be on stimulants right now. My Dr has assured me that it will not work because I am used to the way the stimulant alleviates my symptoms.
I’m trying the non-stimulant for seven days then I’m going to call the Dr to let her know how I’m feeling. If it doesn’t work, I will opt for a long-lasting stimulant such as Vyvanse.
