Yeah my doctor said "Everyone has ADHD now a days" or something like that.

You should follow that up with "Everyone is an asshole now and days". LOL

A med student helped me with prescribing since my doctor was tired of me wanting to change my meds. My meds are good - It's just the stimulant that it inconvenient and I told the med student that "I don't want to bother him (My doctor)" and my doctor seemed to realize that he was crossing a line and said that it's his job to treat me.

He prescribed 15mg Dexedrine to take once in the morning and once at noon. Maybe I'll need 2x 15mg in the morning and 10mg at noon or something idk.. I'll try it and see how it goes. I see him again in 2 weeks.

Took a morning 15mg Dexedrine XR this morning at 9am. I feel focused - Not gonna lie about that. I don't feel the surge through my body that makes me stretch to get out of bed though (Like 50mg of Vyvanse) - Might be a good thing.. So instead just a calm focus.

7.5mg of dextroamphetamine should be in my blood right now. Another 7.5mg will be released at 12pm-1pm.

I'll take the second dose at 1:30-2pm. I should have some sort of focus until 8pm (Instead of 5-6pm with Vyvanse).

I'm not really sure about this so I'll just have to see how this plays out..

I took the second dose at 1pm. It kicked in close to 2pm. 3:30pm now.

It's good. I'll see how long it lasts. Two things I want from this is;

1. To not have a dissociative panic attack in the evening due to lack of focus
2. To be able to get to sleep at around 10-11pm.

Should be good.

Around this time is when I want to be more productive. I wonder if 20mg in the morning and 10mg in the afternoon would be good but I'll judge on that whether or not in the next 2 weeks.

So far this seems to be a good dose. I'm very focused and calm in the morning. I can't make it perfect so I'll just stick with this dose of Dexedrine for a while...

These past 3 days I literally couldn't get out of bed with just one 15mg Dexedrine spansule. I sleep in and then take the second 15mg two hours later.. It takes 30 minutes to kick in and then I'm easily awake.

I'm going to ask my doctor to prescribe 60x 15mg so I can take two every morning and 60-90x 5mg so I can take 10-15mg IR in the late afternoon.

One coffee every morning helps too.

I told my doctor about the 30mg Dexedrine XR all in the morning. He says that there's a 10mg Dexedrine IR tablet that I can take in the late afternoon and to talk to him about it on Wednesday when I need my other meds refilled.

But he said that he sees people messing with their ADHD meds and always want it perfect. He said that 15mg 2x a day is better than nothing.

I don't understand what he means..
