Hi there, I live in the UK and have suffered with treatment resistant depression and anxiety my whole life and a chance meeting a year or so a go led to someone telling me they thought I had ADHD and to get things checked out.
I spoke to my GP and last weekend, over a year down the line, I was diagnosed with ADHD. Now everything I have read fits my life experience far more than the generic anxiety/depression.
I have been prescribed lisdexamfetamine (Elvanse) to help me and started today on a 20mg dose. So far, in one day, I have felt high, elated, nauseated, exhausted, emotional and anxious! I know side effects with medicines are to be expected but has anyone had experience with this and how many days these have lasted.
Is it also common to start on 20mg and then increase the dose as/if needed?
Really hoping this can be a turning point in my life and hope everyone here is doing OK
