new to forum

Ok I was diagnosed at 40 years old after my father passed and could not even get a sentence out of my mouth correctly. I have been on adderall for over a year, and increased from 5 mg up to 40 a day. It does not last all day. My 20 xr last about 5 hours. Then I take 20 regular that last about another 4 hours so by 5oclock at night I'm done. I can't even think anymore.
So my first question is any suggestions on the meds, do some work better than others. I am still a student, a mother, and wife my duties do not end at 5pm.

The next problem I have I wake up in the middle of the night with a million thoughts of what needs to be done and I cant fall back asleep. I can not "calm my brain down". Is this a normal ADHD problem and any suggestions to fix it.

This is a great forum. I wish i knew about this sooner.

Thanks
ilene
