Help! Confused about Medication dose.
Not sure where to start as I am a little confused and hope this posting makes sense.
I am 34 male and started taking Adderall about 9-10 Months ago after my therapist suggested to get help from a psychiatrist. After trial and error found that 20mg by 6am and 20mg by 12pm helped. I felt normal just more calm, attentive with more selfcontrol. Taking the same dose for about 4 months.
Note: The only major change in my life has been my diet. One day I felt like not eating meat, then one day turned into a week and then a month.
Note: I have never been able to read a book from beginning to end.
Both A and B happened in the last 7 days.
A) For the last 3-4 Days when I take my am dose i feel it might be a little too strong. Not sure how to explain it. I feel it in my face. I have always taken my medication as prescribed. It makes no sense how a dose can now be too strong? Right?
B)I decided to prepare myself to go back to school and realized there is problem I didn't realize was there. Every time I try to read, whether is a small article or a long forum posting I find that after a 3-5 minutes I start skip lines and then paragraphs and then I stop. Even if it is something that is very interesting to me. Now, I realize what I am doing and try to go back but in the end, I stop and move to read something else.
Today I explained B to my doctor and he prescribed Wellbutrin in conjunction with same dose of Adderall. I think I was so concentraded to have him help me with B that I forgot to mention A.
What should I do? Should I call doctor and explain A? I am concerned he might think I'm abusing the medication. Should I cut dose in 1/2 and see how I function before starting the new medication?
Any advice will be appreciated
