    I’m a 28 year old female and I’m just reaching out because I can relate to what you’ve written. I’m not taking that medication, I’m taking Ritalin, on day 2, I was diagnosed with ADHD, PTSD and Major depressive disorder. It’s worrying having 3 (what I consider) very conflicting diagnosis. Ritalin can make ptsd worse but my adhd is effecting me so negatively right now that me and my doctor are trying Ritalin first (concerta). TBH it’s not going well, I almost feeling like some symptoms are amplified, zoning out, hyperfocusing at an uncomfortable level, while ironically my ptsd and depression are not so bad because of that “calm feeling” you’ve described.

    You’re probably thinking “thanks for nothing I don’t care” but I really wanted to write back to you because I know it’s hard and I just wanted you to know you’re not alone. It’s scary putting these foreign pills in to our bodies, it’s hard to understand how they are fully effecting us, what’s “just in our heads” and what’s really working/not working. But I’m not gonna give up because these issues have already taken 28 good years from me. I’m going to journal and take notes and spend the next year if I have to finding the exact right medication at the exact right dose. Because I know that if I can figure this out it will improve my life significantly. It’s worth it for many more years of life with out having to struggle as much. So please keep persevering and fighting for the right medication. It’s so worth it. Try and take even a little bit of notes every day and show them to your doctor. You guys will figure this out. You can do this! Good things take time. And you obviously are strong enough to do this just from reading what you wrote I can tell you’ve been through a lot already.
