Any advice on anxiety about starting a stimulant? When I went on a "grippy sock vacation" last there was someone who was addicted to their ADHD stimulant and it stresses me out bc I'm afraid I'll get addicted to it.
You shouldn't get addicted to it unless you abuse it. For the anxiety, I would suggest doing what normally helps you. You could also try breathing exercises when you start getting anxious!
My psychiatrist had me start adderall at 3x a week, and then I worked my way up to 5. I chose only to do it M-F on my work schedule so it felt like I was doing it with purpose instead of doing it just because I had it.
I kinda abused adderall a little but idk if I got actually addicted to it jus a little for awhile, but I abused it cus I liked how it made me really really focus nd get school work done nd clean, also to loose weight cus I liked how it made me not hungry so I basically kinda starved myself, which isn’t healthy so don’t do that, take the dose ur recommend stick to that take it only when u need it school/work. I was taking way more then I was supposed to prolly abt 80mg to more mg a day, only take what ur susposed to
