Medication

Has anyone been on medication? Or currently trialing it? Would love to have this thread as somewhere people can talk about it and discuss our thoughts.

I’m back on concerta after a little time off to figure out if I could make the habits stick that I built while on it. There was improvement, but not as much as I wanted, so I am back on. I’m on the lowest effective dose for me. Today is my first day back in and I’m curious to see how it feels after so long off

Stimulant ADHD medication is banned where I live. There is only the dopamine regulation kind. I’ve never tried any. I would be curious

Ritalin made me feel overstimulated. Dex gave me motivation but while remaining grounded. Strattera helped me wake up early but discontinued in Australia.

I’ve been on medication (concerta) since I was a kid. It has helped me a lot with with school. Keep in mind of dosage and how it makes you feel. I took a higher dosage as a teenager and I felt like I was not myself for four years. Alway adjusted the dosage when need for your comfort

Yes, I have beentaking concerta for about 5 years now and it is amazing. I have tried ritalin too but I don’t like the way it kicks in or out, concerta is super smooth as in the way it kicks in and fades away. Recommend trying it.

Absolutely agree. Ritalin was like a kick and really unsettling

I am yet to get a diagnosis to start trialing medication but am quite nervous. Many of my friends have been trialing different meds and some have had really bad side effects. It could be down to the doctor themselves stuffing up, but I’m anxious to start trailing.
