Ask to get genetic testing to find out how your liver processes medications. You’ll get a list of a ton of medications, not only psych, that is vital.
My life changed once I was properly diagnosed.
My sister FINALLY got her test 15 years after me. She refused. I’m a poor metabolizer and she’s a fast metabolizer. She’s FINALLY in a better place.
Also, if you ever go under anesthesia? They need to know. Pain meds? They need to know.
Some meds can kill me. Who knew.
I suggest everyone get genetic testing. If the doctor doesn’t know, tell him you want genetic testing to see how your liver processes meds.
Might even be home tests. Not sure.
Strattera will take two to four weeks to work. If this combo does not work for you, you might want to discuss with your doctor using a light stimulant medicine. http://www.leeheymd.com/charts/adhd_1.html
