A plethora of mental health possibilities but, adderall?

Recommended Posts

Im on generic adderall 40mg/day for ADD or ADHD and generic lamictal 200mg/day for bipolar. Both for over a year...


Heads up, FYI I found out I am bipolar because antidepressants speed up the roller coaster. Useful information.

Anyway, I don't know where one brain farquabble (just made that one up) ends and the other begins or, if its just an infinite loop or a layer cake or...


I was unmedicated for the first 25 ish years of my life and finally got adderall at 28? 29? Before that I was a general space cadet staring at a wall, stuck in my head with thoughts of doom or infinite loops of a single line of a song... For days. It still happens. Gotta slap myself from time to time.

Did I mention dermatillomania? Between that and the Internet like this here forum, Im lost for hours... With Adderall, at least im awake for them... But im still useless until I smoken the marijana... Then I can do manual labor but, never at any point can I sit my ass down to get through a job application or, do something productive to better my life. Im also slow as shit with my work so, its easy to spend hours not getting anywhere and abandon the job out of frustration. I leave 40 tabs open on my computer and phone at all times until I manage to purge... Down to 30. Bookmarks? I got bookmarks for years... Literally, I havent looked at them... Just leave the window open... OK, its been like a month and still havent done anything... BOOKMARK IT!

Maybe ill organize my bookmarks one day but I'll probably just give up after clicking on it to see if it was useful and winding up with 5 more subsequent open tabs.

What the hell was I making this post for? I can't remember... Maybe it's up there.


Edit: I leave projects out to remind me to do them but, then I just consciously avoid them. It took a half hour to set up the workspace... But I need to rearrange the furniture first. Dont forget to vacuum the old corner and the new corner...

If Adderall doesn't do it, you could try something from the methylphenidate family. And there are some other meds out there. I have a number of symptoms like yours. I think I've mostly learned to control the windows, but the internet is still a time sink. There is a vacuum cleaner, opened up, in the corner of this room. It's been that way for weeks. I need to fix it and use it, but I think you know how that's been going.
