I'm 2 weeks into a 4 week stay at hospital following a complete MH crash after nearly 2 years of increased fatigue, depression, overwhelm and rarely leaving my bed for any more than a couple of hours.
I've had ADHD tests (questionnaires for myself, wife of 28 years and parents/siblings, old school reports) and my Psychiatrist concludes that my ADHD predates my 36 years old TBI. She is about to try me on medication and as per usual my memory of what she told me what the medication is eludes me but I believe it's the standard NHS amphetamine type one for ADHD in adults.
I'm currently on Agomelatine, Melatonin, Diazepam and Zopiclone which are all taken at night. I also take 2mg of Diazepam mid afternoon before my daily 1hr nap.
Does anyone have any experience of ADHD meds ?
Are there other/better alternatives to the usual amphetamine type meds ?
I'd be grateful for the benefit of anyone's experience.
