Good morning, The problem I believe I am having is associated with (1) either my hormone imbalance of progesterone or (2) when estrogen drops that hormone somehow helps my add meds, (I believe its the latter as I have charted this for about 7 months)- and then they become less effective. Re this article- Its fascinating.

I have a couple questions about ADHD meds, are you familiar with which meds specifically or types use which vehicles ( re up take vehicles/ which Hormones they use etc.) to be effective?
Specifically- the issue I am having around the 14th day of my cycle- (supposedly when my estrogen drops my ADD meds seem to not work at all). I am looking to try a new medication that doesn’t use estrogen as a reuptake vehicle.
(1) Are you familiar with some of these other types of meds? If not, who can I call or talk to to see which ADD Med would be best?
My communication and comprehension/ ability to even get words out on these days is proving to be horrible in my marriage and family. I meet with my psychologist tomorrow for a review and really would love to ask for a new option.
