| | Just Diagnosed with ADHD..Questions about the Adderall I am taking
Hello, I am 27 years old and I was just diagnosed with ADHD about 2 weeks ago. I just started medicine 4 days ago. I feel kind of shocked, relieved, scared and I don't know what else. It all just makes so much sense to me now. Everything that's happened in my life just has answers now. Why things are the way they are. I just can't believe I have gone this long without knowing. My mom was always against diagnosis. She always thought that it gave people excuses to act certain ways. She was the type to never give sympathy. So I guess that's why...I'm not sure. But anyway, I have a question. I just started Adderall 10mg 2 times a day. Its not extended release, but when it wears off, I get really anxious. Is that because the Adderall calms me down, and when it wears off, my brain is going back to the way it usually is? (constantly moving around with a million thoughts.) Do you think that an extended release would be better? has anyone else had that experience? How is normal supposed to feel on a pshycostimulant? Has anyone else had that experience? How does everyone else feel? Is it okay that I feel this way? Suggestions?
