Only if you have ADHD. I’m in the process of seeing a doctor and getting a diagnosis.

I hear they can worsen psychotics.
I don’t see a reason to take them unless you need them and have a corresponding diagnosis.

I just cant concentrate for the love of god.

I wish i could focus

I got addicted to stims as a young adult, one psychiatrist told me they could have been an environmental trigger for my SZ. They’re bad news man, steer clear.

Damn that sux, but thanks for the heads up

Aren’t you on Wellbutrin @velociraptor ? :rofl:

Psychostimulants are even worse imo.

Try low dose caffeine or nicotine. Shouldn’t hurt.

Gives me a good hour of focus.

Yeah, problems with depression and suicidal urges when not on it. I’m not wild about taking it, but the alternative is worse. At least I’m not popping uppers like they’re candy any longer (built up a hella amazing tolerance back in the day).

Side note: I’m a big fan of irony so I keep my ADs in an empty Mr. Incredible PEZ dispensor.

As someone who started using nicotine gum when they were never a smoker… please don’t do this… it is very addictive and costly

I was eventually having 80mg of nicotine a day

A box of 88 lozenges costs me 25$CAD.

That’s like 4 packs of smokes.

I take Adderall. My doctor prescribed it because I couldn’t focus and I was exhausted all the time. She put me on low dose, she says, of 10mg. It’s helping me a lot. I have schizoaffective bipolar type. As long as I stay on a low dose, it shouldn’t make me psychotic. I’m also on Invega Sustenna, so that’s keeping my psychosis under control.

I’m hoping I can do something like that. I’m exhausted or whatever and drink 7 monsters a day. Low sugar.

Good lord.

If you quit you’ll either spiral into psychosis or have mad anxiety for a few days.

I took them for adhd. I got addicted and started to snort them at parties and my first psychotic episode was after taking way to much at a wild halloween party in a downtown collective. I tried to continue to use them after my first break but they just made me more and more psychotic every time I took them. I would steer clear
