[QUOTE=Thunor;4036562]...I'm beginning to wonder if I'm expecting a panacea that will do it all for me, and thus abdicating my responsibilities to make good decisions.

I don't know. Reflection time is required. I'll get back to you.[/QUOTE]

Dexedrine CR delivers the d-amphetamine so consistently that I don't experience any drug related ups and downs during normal awake hours.

Stated another way: Dexedrine CR does not contribute to the problem with any side-effects.

It enables me to make good decisions. I remain very capable of making bad decisions. It's up to me. A significant contributor is the ADHD coaching I've gotten through my psychologist and through this board. I'm quite sure if we pull the coaching out of the mix, I'd still be looking for the "pancea."

I want to retain a balanced view. Dexedrine CR is NOT the med for everyone. No one medication is. It will not surprise me at all if many find Adderall or Ritalin or Strattera or Wellbutrin more effective their case.

Some additional info:

My ADHD symptoms are directly proportional to the demand on my brain. Persistently too little or too much load adversely affects me.

I can work well on 20mg/day. And on low-load days, 10mg works magnificently. 30mg is required on most work days. I'm unsure about how wise it is to adjust the med on the fly.

I intend to continue days off regularly. I firmly believe days off prevent tolerance. At any rate, it is my experience.

I dumped the Celexa against shrinks wishes. I hate taking the stuff. If the depression returns, I know where the vial is. Or is it "vile?" Yeah, the latter.

The equation is set in diamond. I understand that's a dang hard stone.

Medication + coaching + time = Adult ADHD management. Put the wrong values in the variables, and we are cooked.
