I have been on Adderall for ADHD for about a year and a half, same time as I was diagnosed. I started out on 30mg extended release. I was on that dose for the majority of the time I have been medicated. A few months ago I moved up to 40mg extended release.
When I was first diagnosed it was summer of 2020. I started my senior year of high school fully online shortly after that. I am now halfway done with my freshman year of college. My senior year I was not doing nearly the amount of work that requires focus as I am now in college. So I am just now starting to realize how intense my ADHD is. When I read other people's before and after stories I notice that I do not see the benefits that the majority of people have on medication. My "after" is the same as their "before". Should I consider asking my psychiatrist to raise the dose? Or maybe start a different medication? Any advice appreciated!
