i’ve been on 50 mg strattera for ADHD for about a year now, and i definitely think it’s helped me, but i can’t tell if it’s helping anymore. every time i take it i get so tired for like 2 hours and then i perk up again, and i feel like all it does it help me get out of bed sometimes. i need my meds to help me stay alert and focused and organized, and i feel like it’s just helping me bare minimum stay alive. what other medications do people take? are there any other good non stimulants? or should i ask my psychiatrist about stimulants?

      @Amus it’s rough out here i keep telling myself i’m being dramatic, but also meds are supposed to help you function regularly not just make sure you eat and get out of bed sometimes ya know?

      Definitely ask your therapist. I took Stratera for a year and it didnt help enough. I just started Adderall; 3 days into 20mg, Ive noticed some improvement but also so major side effects.
