It wasn’t until iI sought diagnosis and treatment for my ADHD, that I came to learn just how dangerous stimulants can be if they are not prescribed.
Just like any controlled substance. Do NOT TAKE ADDERALL IF YOU DO HAVE ADHD AND A PRESCRIPTION.
So after a lot of appointments, I was finally ready to start my trials with ADHD mediation.
Here is my recount of how the day went.
- Took 15 MG around 5:30 AM
- 7:OO AM started noticing effects.
- Ever watch an action movie and maybe it’s a battle scene or an action sequence in a big city. All this noise and commotion? Then it all goes silent even though the action is still going? That’s what happened in my brain.
- I was polite. Used my manners. Even smiled easier.
- I listened when people spoke and responded instead of only pretending to listen or walking away.
- I completed tasks with ease, start to finish
- I didn’t loose my temper once and when things didn’t go according to plan, I calmly recovered and found a solution. Normally, it would send my day into a downward spinal
- The day flew by and I didn’t feel drained.
- Normal coffee consumption: 6-8 cups
- Today’s coffee consumption : zero
- No appetite. Usually starving by 8. Didn’t eat a light breakfast until 11.
Like it so far. But it will need to be regularly monitored.
