As some of you know I had an appointment yesterday with a neurologist. I was tired of being my own doctor with my ADHD medication. Too many side effects, especially migraine headaches. Yesterday we decided to give Focalin XR a shot since I've already tried Adderall, Ritalin, Vyvanse, and Strattera on my own. Focalin is a derivative (I think that's the word he used) of Ritalin, so taking 10 mg of Focalin is like taking 20 mg of Ritalin. It's a once-a-day extended release dosage.

I didn't take it today because I didn't sleep very well last night or the two previous nights. I didn't want to introduce Focalin into my system until my sleep pattern returned to normal. I'm in a pattern of running all over the place trying to finish everything on my to-do list for a few days until I exhaust myself and basically stop (feeling like) being productive at all. This is the second week in a row of that, and it sucks. That's probably one of the main reasons my sleep has sufferred. I haven't exercised in two days either, and I can feel it in my brain for sure. Hopefully I can level back out again tonight and tomorrow.

I'm seriously thinking of trying to find an ADD coach. Has anyone ever used an ADD coach? What was their rate and what was your experience like?
