Guest SDH Posted June 28, 2010 Share Posted June 28, 2010 First, I apologize if this is rambly and makes no sense, but I am hoping for feedback from others who have ADHD and have been on stimulant medication for a while. I have been on Adderall for about a year now. I am terrible with time, as in, I couldn't say if an event occurred a year ago, or three. That has always been an issue. But now I am having different memory problems and am wondering if it could be the medication. These are more short-term, like I have to try really hard to remember something from yesterday. I become frustrated because I forget what I am saying mid-sentence. I also am having a hard time processing info. The first few months on medication were not like this. I was processing info quickly, and memory seemed better. My doctor said ADHD doesn't worsen, or the medicine doesn't stop working (or something to that effect...see what I mean? can't remember specifically what she said) I also take 25 mg seroquel for insomnia. I thought this could be the cause, or maybe too much or too little adderall.( I am prescribed 15 mg, 3 per day) I've tried everything, from only taking one per day, half of one, none, all three etc. I may feel fine for a day or two at a specific dose, and then I'm right back to feeling like I have cotton for brains. Just wondering if anyone else has had this happen after having initial success with adderall? Any comments, suggestions etc appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
