ADHD recent law grad suffering for years, can't figure out what helps or doesn't anymore even with my doc. I've been on Lexapro 10 mg and Adderall XR 25 mg (now reduced to 15 mg) and I'm too lethargic and careless to even call back big job opportunities.
I've also been in an unstable relationship probably due to the toxic single-parent house I live in and don't know what helps or doesn't anymore. I miss having a personality and my old sex drive (even though use to be crazy high) and lexapro took away the crazy anxiety I had at certain time in law school but not sure it's beneficial anymore, but it prevents Adderall side effects.
My doc also gave me dexedrine which running out to fast and like the lack of l-amp but I think I need that for some reason. Anyone in similar treatment plan want to give some input please? lost my relationship and almost everyone all of a sudden. thank you
I'd recommend switching to fluoxetine and a gym membership friend. Years of study have no doubt attributed to a more lethargic lifestyle; if you want that push back in your life you have to create it. Additionally, escotalopram and dextroamphetamines have pesky effects on your nervous system causing some signals to never reach their intended destination if you get my drift. Fluoxetine has less of these and if you insist on staying with the ADHD meds go with IR (immediate release) adderall twice daily since they are 6-8 hr and plan the pants off parties late at night to lesson the effect instead of trying to fight a 12 hour capsule. As for the gym... your stream might be barely making it to the end there, but going to the gym will increase your blood flow on a constant basis and your heart muscles and turn it into a river haha those meds won't interfere too much. Keep in mind the bonus testosterone boost you will benefit from as well as I'm assuming if you finished law school you're getting over those golden day hair trigget random annoying erection days. Also, follow up with your doc; if you have high BP from stimulants... the erections go bye bye, and couciling for the mommy issues may help with the mental block towards women too. Go get em tiger
