So, I struggle with Adult ADHD, which means I have a terrible time focusing on both video games and my creative pursuits. It’s been an eye opening experience these last few days how bad it is, seeing as how I can’t focus on my partner talking directly to me, having had to take a small dose after running out of my 10 MG.
I’m on Adderall 10 MG XR right now, and I’ve been thinking of talking to my doctor about going up to 15. Thing is, I’ve gone up to 20 before, and I found that to be way too strong.
Is this how it is supposed to go though? An incremental increase, up and up, until I reach a cap? I guess my mentality is that I don’t want to be too dependent on the drug, despite it helping me IMMENSELY.
It was helping a lot over the past year, but lately it feels like I’m slipping into old habits again, unable to focus on writing, one of my passions, or getting through ANY kind of game that’s not an immediate multi-player game. I feel like I’m not locked in on conversations again either…
Does anyone have similar experiences? How do you cope with these changes in focus?
