short term focus on a subject matter, weeks to months
May 18, 2019 - 6:05 PM - by horsebattery
I知 trying to figure out all the language I need to communicate this issue. Often it seems to be just a matter of accuracy relaying a feeling to get the right answer.

I switch between related and unrelated topics at fairly regular intervals. I値l dive deep into something and then hit some kind of barrier. Shortly after I get to that point I値l pretty much drop it all together. For me it痴 often money. I致e set rules that I want to do and learn fun stuff for free. Free hobbies.... [Read More]

Yo everyone on the boards, just checking in, really to kind of journal down some these thoughts the past 5 or 6 months. and, I always like to share my experiences.

Newly Diagnosed in Middle Age -- Ritalin Dosing
May 16, 2019 - 7:48 PM - by KirkMustaine
Hi all,
I was recently diagnosed with ADHD and Anxiety (well, I've actually already been medicating the Anxiety part, currently with Escitalopram), and my provider started me on Ritalin.
She had me start with 5mgs, and then add more for subsequent doses as needed.

Switching from adderall to dexadrine
May 14, 2019 - 4:11 PM - by torrie.hill
I have had to switch from adderall to dexadrine, due to medical coverage and cost. I was taking 30mg of xr 2 x a day and was just prescribed 5mg of dexadrine 2x a day. I realize this does of dex is not nearly equivalent to the Adderall and believe my Dr. Is being cautious. Has anyone else made this switch and if so how did you react?
