That's good, bb.



Which was a good thing last year with all the shortages and stuff. Not sure if that's still going on or not but my prescription is always made up for me these days

I tried Atomoxetine (Strattera) a few years ago - a non-stimulant med for adhd but it made me sleepy.

So I gave up with trying to medicate adhd in the end.

I wanted to try that but they wouldn't let me change during the shortages because of the shortages

It is worth a try I think as a secondary option. But if stimulants work okay for you without significant side effects, you might as well stick with those.

Yeah I've been using this for longer than I can remember but I just fancied a change. Maybe I'll look into it in the future

Yeah, it is an option at the very least. :)
