I’m pretty new to the ADHD way of life and treatment too! I would agree with whats been said about shift work being detrimental. Just from my experience regular routine is a MUST for me!

Having said that, I’m lucky my issues with sleep have always been fatigue so after my adjustment period with meds, I tend not to lose much sleep. However I avoid coffee in the afternoons.

I take Dexedrine twice a day, I think it’s similar to Ritalin in that it’s shorter acting than some of the newer drugs. Some days I only take one dose. For example today I sleep late and didn’t take my first dose until 10am, I will likely skip my noon dose and be fine.

That’s all the experience Ive got! Good Luck with it!
