I’m stuck at 70mg Elvanse. If I take it 08:00...kicks in about 09:00, all my ADHD symptoms have returned by 14:00...15:00 at best. My Doctor seems to have a real problem going off label. Any (clear) advice please to get me past this little milestone? Splitting it don’t work either.
Risk for the doc? There's close to zero risk. You can feed yourself elvanse until the cows come home, you ain't getting high off it.
Objectively, his only real risk is that his ineptitude causes you lose your job, your wife divorces you and then you find you have 'nothing left to lose' and need to find someone to blame for ruining your life.
If you ask yourself why the NHS really exists, the simplest possible answer is to ensure physiological needs are met.
The economy does. If people are too ill to work, on a mass scale, things would get very bad, very quickly.
I haven't checked but I bet there is a way to complain about a doctor who has affected your ability to work. I bet, if properly escalated, the shit would hit the fan for them if it was found to be true.
Your leverage in these conversations is always the ability to work. A doctor that harms someone's ability to work is almost committing an act of treason, if you take this line of thinking to the extreme.
Similarly a doctor that, inadvertently, breaks up a family and harms the ability of 4 people to work? There are serious knock on effects for the economy when inaction/fear becomes the compass for titration.
An ADHDer out of work is basically a Tasmanian devil. If there needs to be a get out clause to protect clinicians/prescribers where we are concerned then so be it because nobody has time for blame but it is ABSOLUTELY VITAL that those of us with a strong desire to make a contribution are adequately medicated.
Look at me. Basically been out of work for 9 months. I've caused my missus, daughter, my old man, my grandparents and the rest of the family untold levels of stress. They've been super supportive throughout, I'm so lucky.
The truth is, I know Elvanse hasn't been working properly for me for at least two years but because I'm on a high dose my assumption has been there is nothing that can be done. Perhaps there isn't but tomorrow, I will find out.
My script got reduced. 120 down to 70, with no support. All so the GP surgery can save 10 pence/month. They even got the CMHT to say I'm anxious and aggressive (lol?) to legitimise the decision. This is after they kept me on a weekly script for two years, despite coming from Bristol on a three month repeat.
As far as I can tell, NHSWALES is a complete farce.
We should probably reverse devolution and let the English look after our affairs because we clearly do not know what the fuck we're doing.
Piss take, its a no mans land down at 70mg...half a life. I quit but have some points to share;
I completely changed my diet...cut out all processed suger, reduced all carbs to minimum whole grain, smothies...carrots, ginger, kale, spinage...not too much fruit. plenty protein...tuna, sardines, lean chicken, nuts and steak. i feel great.... lost gut etc.
I have noticed Elvanse has opened up channels in my mind that have remained open. I dont beleive its just trained behaviours, Its literally jump started a blocked part of my prefrontal cortex. Now without the Elvanse, seretonin is also getting a look in and its a powerful mix.
