This is probably going to be short and sweet because of lack of mental energy and the concern of writing 7 pages that are just confusing if I do add detail.
So i’m just wondering, for those of you who have been prescribed amphetamine based medications, namely Adderall (mixed-amp) or Dexedrine/Dextrostrat (dextro-amp salt), as well as Vyvanse (lisdexamphetamine), essentially an amphetamine salt that isn’t methamphetamine, how long does it take for a tolerance break to give a decent tolerance reset.
And also what strategies do you guys implement, I’ve done this before actually so you would think I would know, I think I actually had a notebook for this but I think I lost it and don’t feel like looking.
So far actually withdrawal has been pretty great, like emotionally I feel pretty good most of the time, I see I do think a little more hyper-actively, I got soap in my eye yesterday which i’m going to blame on not being medicated, but besides that and the constant need to eat and never feel full, at least emotionally I’m doing great which from prior experience isn’t always the case when you cold turkey.
But the little things in life are becoming absolutely draining, I had trouble hanging up my shirts, like it was just taking too long, and too much mental energy for as simple of a task that it is.
I’m trying to eat high protein and stuff, multi-vitamins as well, vitamin D3 works well if anyone else is doing this, also gotta give a quick shout out to bison.
Now with me, and idk it might be because of ADHD, cooking depletes all mental functions of any resources, it seriously takes too much focus, for too long, then cleaning up, and w.e
But I gotta say yesterday I had my first Bison burger and it was amazing, it tasted like a better version of a regular burger, but this tiny patty, was only 250 cal and 29g of protein, but it kept me full for an entire night, when I could easily eat like 3 regular burgers, it was kinda crazy tbh, so shout out to bison if anyone is going through a tolerance break.
I try to exercise, but my treadmills been having issues, I also have some like uncoordinated so it’s quite common I injury myself which gets annoying, I also have awful exercise-induced asthma so I take Bronkaid when I jog, so I kinda don’t wanna do that because ephedrine is a CNS, and that could kinda defeat the purpose of a tolerance break, but I still try a bit.
I keep forgetting to meditate, or think about it, like yeah ill do that right after this, and then not recall it for 2 days.
But try to let me know what helped you guys, the duration of a tolerance break that really helped tolerance and that sorta stuff, like I said, emotionally I’m doing pretty good, I talk more and stuff, so that’s good for now, but seriously just like tasks drain me mentally far more than they should, I’m not saying that it’s due to withdrawal either like I’ve always been like that, I’m just wondering non-pharmaceutical interventions for it, and also subjective advice on duration of tolerance break etc.
I’m still going to reply to some of your comments on other posts guys! just right now, it takes me a lot of mental energy to reply and read and such.
