| | I'm so confused need serious help
I was diagnosed with ADHD when little, but my mom is a psychologist and never wanted me on meds. Now that I'm back to school, I'm 28, Is affecting me notably. Hence, I went to the University doctor to get a referral, but this is what happened:
1- he asked me why? I explained all of the above plus I expressed my concern of my impulsivity being worse of what I can remember as child or as a teen, I don't wait my turns in class, it's hard to be quiet once I start talking (I don't let ppl talk without interrupting them to prove my point) so it's terrible when u are a grownup and you do this sort of things..
2- the times and not busy I get terribly depress, so I thought that by reducing my anxiety and hyperactivity would help with the depressions.
Now, he prescribed Ritalin 5 mg. Morning and afternoon He said if that doesn't help you to concentrate take 10 each time
Today I took for the first time after a week 2 in the morning and first I didn't feel any different I dont feel like it's helping me to concentrate nor my impulsivity---plus I feel sooo down, tired and sleepy... Then I napped before my second dose and ate a portion of watermelon after the nap..I got a massive headache after eating, chest pain like gasses or a weird feeling that is hard to describe and the urge to eat salty (like when u have low blod pressure which a trend to have)
Now my question besides anyone having the same effects which I certainly just read... Am I on the wrong med maybe? I'm afraid to ask the doc without knowing my options!
Please helpppp...thanks in advance....
