I was finally diagnosed with adult ADHD 2 months ago at the age of 30. My psychiatrist put me on Adderall, XR which has allowed me to focus on one thing until it's done (instead of getting sidetracked a dozen times) for the first time in my life. It's really been great, being able to focus and get the things I want to do done.
There are only 2 problems. First is that a couple hours after I take the Adderall XR, it starts to mess with my anxiety. I get a low-level general anxious feeling that lasts about 2-3 hours then passes. The other problem is that I have a very hard time achieving & maintaining an erection. In the morning before I take the Adderall (when I should have the smallest about in my system) I can barely "take care of myself". Any other time of day is a total no-go.
Would dexedrine be a better solution for me? Am I likely to get relief from my ADHD without those side effects?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts,
