Thanks for the help!
Can I assume "excursive" a typo for exercise?
I find it easy to understand if exercise. Exercise forces our brains to come up with the neuros we are short on. If, and how I so do wish, I could make a decent living with my butt out of this chair, I'll bet I could just say no to drugs too. I love the outdoors. Sunlight is another excellent neuro-booster. Nearly everyone in high latitudes get depressed every winter. Same folk can happily go with almost no sleep in the summer. Good stuff that sunlight is. Fake light sucks.
The pursuit of sedentary inside office jobs has got to be the most common mistake that the ADHD make. Must be for the prestige because nothing else makes sense. Hard to change course later in life, though, and still pay the bills, that is.
My experience: Adderall is gone the next day. However, after a few months, our brains get use to the extra kick in the same way they get use to AM coffee. Ever try to kick caffeine? I get a headache and feel lethargic for a few days to a week. When I kick Adderall, both headache and lethargy, are milder and last no longer than one day. The ease of Adderall withdrawal beats snot out of caffeine withdrawal.
Just dump the Adderall. You should beat what is often mistaken for withdrawal symptoms namely the return of ADHD symptoms. ADHD symptoms can be like Freddy Kruger. "He's back." He is a monster just not the withdrawal monster.
I envy you. Let me know how you do.
PS I never did succeed kicking caffeine. I'm done trying.
