My husband takes 450 mg of Wellbutrin XR for depression. He had severe depression on Strattera, and had to stop that. (Honestly, he should have been hospitalized, but we didn't have insurance.)
Then the doctor tried Vyvanse, but he seems to have gotten too tolerant of that, and it didn't work well for him any more. His coach said she couldn't work with him until he got on a better medication to make his brain work better.
Then he tried Adderall and it made him jerk and shake, and he had a bad fall. So the doctor put him on Ritalin, but he has to take it twice a day, and he has trouble remembering to take the second dose, and he's still jerking and shaking and falling. He's going back to the doctor next week. I'm afraid he's not going to be able to take medication, and then he won't be able to do his job. But each time he has a doctor's appointment, he loses half a day of work, and that could threaten his job too. And he loses half a day of work so the doctor can spend 15 minutes with him. This doctor works with the ADHD clinic at our local university.
Does anybody have any ideas?
