The Question Was, “What should I expect when I start ADHD medication?”
Between two hours and two days you should notice more focus and more motivation and more follow through.
You probably won’t get any side effects, but if you do, the most likely are insomnia, jitteriness, or indigestion. These might get better in a week or two if you stay on the medication, but they probably won’t. You would need to adjust the dose and/or the timing. If that doesn’t work, you would need to change the medication. But, you probably won’t get any side effects .
You may start the medication at a low dose and plan to gradually raise it as needed, but if you don’t notice benefit pretty soon, I would question the diagnosis.
Bob Clear good stuff
Mostly Irrelevant Private Note:
ADHD does have some benefits, including creativity and thinking outside the box.
I just completed my first art piece. I like it. Since I have a creative urge but no artistic talent, I needed to find an alternative way to do art. I said I like it; I never said it was any good.
Question O the Day:
So was this piece an example of thinking outside the box, or inside the box?
