I was diagnosed a year ago, but I pretty much told the doctor she was crazy! She gave me samples of Stratta to try and I stopped taking them after two weeks because I couldn't tell a difference and my thyroid medicine was changed at the same time so I thought my focusing improved because of that. However, one year later I look back on those two weeks with longing. I have not felt the same since and I wasn't even on the full dosage of what I was suppose to work up to. I'm still having a hard time accepting the fact, my husband says I have it, but my mom doesn't think so, but I think maybe she is thinking ADHD with the hyperactivity, I've never had that, but my lack of concentration & what I've always said was my "brain shutting off" when I was uninterested in a subject has always been present!
I went back to the doctor on tuesday and she wrote a prescription for Vyvance. I haven't taken it yet because we've been fighting my insurance, BUT today I got the ok and got the 30 days supply! I'm excited to maybe finally have focus in my life!
