I've noticed a lot of exacerbated ADHD symptoms by taking SSRI medications. SSRI medicines are hard to manage when I have severe hyperactivity and inattentiveness with ADHD, yet the SSRI seems to help in other areas that I mentioned.
I have spoken to my psychiatrist about this a couple times, and he told me to try and time the doses between Dexedrine and Lexapro so I don't have too much Lexapro before trying to study, and try not to have too much Dexedrine close to bed.
Is there an easier way to go about trying to manage comorbid conditions because all the interactions of Lexapro and Dexedrine seem to be really frustrating to always keep in check.
What I am currently doing is doing "micro-dosing" and just taking 5-10 mg of Lexapro at certain times of the day, followed by 2-3 hours later 10 mg of Dexedrine, followed by another 5-10 mg of Lexapro, and repeating that alternating pattern.
I just don't like having to split up dosing so much and remembering all the periodic doses is hard, yet this sort of medicine regimen is what I have noticed the most success with. It is just a very high-maintenance way of going about managing things.
Are there any ideas on how I can better handle these symptoms possibly without needing to be so "on-point" with all the times between doses and which medicine I'm taking (and how much of each)? It's truly a full-time job!
