    I had to learn to force myself to eat on a timer. I set an alarm on my phone at 7:00 12:00 and 5:00 and made sure I ate something at those hours. It helped my body deal with coming down.

    Yes. I experienced the same problem in my younger years at school. It's not always about managing the medicine, consider whether the symptoms are worth it for the results. You don't adjust your lifestyle for medicine, it could be dangerous and lead to other issues. In my desperate search for a solution, where my parents were controlling my medicine and not hearing my input, I stopped eating all together at school and my mental health had been degrading because I thought it was my fault it wasn't working.

    I guess, TLDR, maybe it isn't the medicine that's best for you.

    Try a new med! I stopped being able to eat on Strattera, but my appetite is not affected by Ritalin and Adderall. Sometimes a change in meds can provide the same perks, without unhealthy side effects. If you're on IRs, they tend to have a worse come down, since they pack a more immediate punch. I highly recommend chatting with your doc about getting on something different
