Me too! I take naps because it's an escape grom feeling discontent with everything. I never thought about it that way before. I feel guilty all the time about the naps but It doesn't stop me from taking them. I tried Vyvanse and Adderall. They work but then I can't sleep at night. Is there a non stimulant that works?
Strattera is a non-stimulant med. It doesn't work as well, but it does work.
The other thought is not to take extended release meds (XR) so they are out of your system at night. Vyv has probably the longest duration of them all, which is great for some people. Ritalin has a duration of roughly 4 hours which I think is the shortest.
Some people even take meds to help them sleep at night (which I think should be avoided if possible). But since we all are different it takes some trial and error to see what works the best.
