Meds and ED

I've looked around but nothing really consistent so I'll bring it up again for updates.

Started Ritalin/Concerta in February. That time I was able to get erections, morning wood. The whole deal. My libido was up. But ritalin/concerta didn't do much therapeutically so I went on Adderall and now I able to get things done but now erections are super rare. My libido is up still. I'm so chill and relaxed that I'm getting checked out cause my body language is so free but can't really get erections or morning woods anymore. Even with effort.

When I was younger I could drink preworkout drinks before the gym and still be easily aroused but NOW, no way.

So my doc wanted me to try IR instead of XR for this week at a lower dose but that doesn't help much with my ADHD. So I stopped taking my afternoon dose since I'm done with work and I'll just deal with the distractions. But still no easy erections. Then on a day off two days ago I woke up at 1230am, took my dose and was composing and mixing my music, to gauge when my libido would be strong and get aroused if I took it really early. STILL, nothing. But after weaning off the meds I started to get a bit anxious and get panic attacks.

So today after taking no meds for a day and half and weaning off slowly, I finally woke up with morning wood and able to get a full on erection. But last time I had a crazy 5 minute panic attack. I didn't know what to do. Never experienced it like that. It was if I killed someone and the police is at my door. Just crazy. But I grounded myself and started saying affirmations and the helped. That was crazy.

So now I'm looking to see other options of meds. I don't want to get into a literature debate with anyone and recite stuff you read online on webmd or rxlist. But from your own personal decision making.

For me, I'm good with energy, I'm more inattentive and not into mundane stuff and adderall helped me focus and do mundane things without resistance.

Was looking into Wellbutrin. I'm not into getting into a conversation about SSRI or reuptake inhibitor and blah blah. Just what did you do to get your ADHD under control and at the same time have reduced to no erection problems other than stop taking your meds. I took Viagra also and from my history this week, I need a good 15+ after taking my first dose of adderall for the viagra to help with the erections. If I wasn't on ADHD meds, Viagra would kick in 30 minutes. As of now I'm just preplanning my day, if I have no plans, I'm not taking any meds and just gonna go out to get laid.

I kinda don't want to stop adderall cause at a low dose, I'm getting my life in order but I don't want to sacrifice my erections either. I've tried adderall and viagra together. Had no issues with breathing or anything and BP and heart rate was normal range for me. But my doc hasn't prescribed me anything yet for ED medication. I hinted at it but he wants me to try IR first. Next visit I'm telling him I need to fine a solution for my ADHD and ED.
