Several ideas here.
Ok so if someone wanted to treat the symptoms you have and they wanted to do it without meds, there are many substances that can target that chemistry. Dexidrine helps, and that's cool, it's just that a lifetime of that is almost always a bad outcome. But since we now know what chemistry to focus on, cool, let's do it. Such as DLPA. Tyrosine. Glutamine. In the herbal category I would favor rhodiola rosea, but an array of other herbs can be remarkably helpful as well. Rhodiola is just more specific for depression.
In studying or surfing on the web maybe look at herbal connections with dopamine, norepinephrine, and endorphins.
I don't know, probably not helpful just some ideas. You pretty much know at this point you are dealing with some kind of NE/DA thing so it just makes sense to me to discover everything possible that impacts those chemistries in hopes of not just replacing dex but getting a better outcome all around.
