Titration of medications requires you to adjust the doses according to attentional load. Not all the days are the same. Sometimes adding a short acting psychostimulant during a boring meeting keeps you focused but if the dose is too high, you will feel sleepy, zoned out, OCD, or even anxious. The withdrawal symptoms may lead to emotional lability or aggression. Remember, meds are there to make your habits happen. Hopefully, you won’t need the meds if you change your lifestyle. Sometimes, you have to keep on the meds because you keep sliding back. Just make sure someone is always following you.

Always speak to your doctor before making any changes to medications. Dr. Jain provides advice generically and not for any one person. Advice does not constitute a therapeutic relationship or promise of care. Please consult the privacy policy for more information.
