Crazy fast metabolism wrecking my ADHD med benefits

Hey all, I've tried various medicines for ADHD. I metabolize stimulants very fast, so not many options are very effective for me (even long-acting medicines). I'm feeling pretty frustrated with my doctor because he won't let me change my medicines even after being on the same ones for nearly 6 months now because he wants to see some "long-term stability" with my medicine regimen. I asked him today, nearly 6 months later after making a medicine change, if he would let me try something for the depression I get with ADHD, and he told me to try therapy and/or go into in-patient in the hospital which I have already been in in-patient twice before voluntarily, and I've had 6 therapists in the past 7 years, so I feel totally neglected and given up on by my physician.

Did you leave your therapists? Or did they leave you?

Does he agree with you that you have clinical depression? And what medicines were you proposing for your depression? Do you have past experience with medication for your depression?

Re: Crazy fast metabolism wrecking my ADHD med benefits

that's pretty harsh to tell you to go IP for your depression. do you need to go in right now? are you able to keep yourself safe?

Run the other way. His lack of compassion, empathy and knowledge means he is no good for you.
