Hey guys! So for some reason, the past three years of college I forgot that I had adhd. Many crises later— I finally realized that OH YA, I have adhd (MEGA SMFH). I decided to take my ass to a psychiatrist, and I tried Ritalin 20mg XR— it was incredible. My room is always messy but I was finally able to organize my room, which usually takes me 4 days to a month (unfinished because I get distracted). I was also able to study at home, which I usually can’t because I have a big and loud family. The following days, my room was organized. My thoughts were completely clear. Unfortunately, I had heart palpitations and GI issues (which lead to me going to the emergency room to get IV fluids). My doctor changed my medicine to Adderall 10mg IR, it’s been good but it’s not enough. I severely crash at about 7pm with a pulsating headache and severe nausea. I feel like my head and eyeballs are gonna explode. Today in my chem lecture, my professor was going through the lecture and I missed so much of it because I was trying to keep up with the notes and what she was saying. I took my medicine 15 mins before class.
Is it normal to have this insane crash even though it’s instant release?
How do you force yourself eat when you feel nauseous? I don’t want to lose weight. I work on maintaining muscle and I’ve already lost 5 lbs and it’s only been 5 days. LIKE WTF
Have you guys had this experience?
Now when I’m not on the medicine, I feel like a completely different person and I’m scared that I’ll need it forever because I’m dysfunctional af without it.
