I'm new here I do apologize if this question has already been answered...I have SEVERE ADD...I have taken all the meds and Adderall Instant Release seems to be the one that is right for me. I start college tomorrow and I'm really excited to see how well I do on an academic level...I was never diagnosed in high school, I barely passed and would literally think about what I was going to DAYDREAM about before class started. ANYWAYS...any advice from those with SEVERE ADD? ADD meds not only help me with reading and school but...I feel like myself...helps with anxiety...EVERYTHING.
So...I weigh 115 and my height is 5'2 and 20 mg IR adderall works for about 4-5 hours..I want to know if anyone takes a non-stimulant along with adderall...IR or XR...?? I have some Strattera 40 mg and 25 mg capsules that are pretty old. How long for Strattera to work? ANY experiences from anyone who has severe ADD and has been successful in maintaining an ADD cocktail without feeling like they constantly have to up dose or change meds? It's hard enough to get my 15 min appointment with my psych...even harder to stress the importance of increasing dosage, adding or changing anything with my adderall. I just want some advice so I can be better prepared when getting my 15 min with my Dr...and just want to relate to others like me..
