Hey there,

I decided to record this video to keep you updated on what I’m doing recently to treat and manage my symptoms of ADHD. I was recently diagnosed with Attention Dysregulation and Hyperactivity Disorder, and for over a year now, I have been struggling to find a proper medication.

I have tried various medications, including antidepressants and stimulants. I have used Elvanse (Vivance), which is dexamphetamine, for about five months so far. It helped a lot with the sensation of depression. I was feeling depressed because I couldn’t accomplish tasks, keep my house organized, or focus on studying. Elvanse gave me a sense of calmness and helped with depression.

However, it didn’t improve my focus or motivation. Even with amphetamines like Elvanse, my brain couldn’t concentrate as it was supposed to. I started with 20 milligrams, then increased to 30 milligrams, which made me feel slightly better. But it still wasn’t enough. I also had a hard time getting up in the morning and getting my day started. I experienced moments of paralysis and zoning out, which made it difficult to initiate tasks. And if I did start something, my mind raced with multiple thoughts simultaneously, which made it hard to function properly.

I increased the dosage to 40 milligrams and now 50 milligrams, but I haven’t seen any significant improvement. Sometimes, I still feel like I’m speaking too much without any coherent connection in what I’m saying. Elvanse wasn’t as powerful as expected.

I also tried a medication called Wellbutrin (bupropion) before. It turned out to be the worst medication for me, almost like poison. I took it for three to four months, and it had severe side effects. I developed acne, which I am still struggling with, along with rashes, headaches, vivid nightmares, sweating, and heart palpitations. The anxiety caused by Wellbutrin was unbearable, and I experienced many negative side effects. I tried it three times, and each time was equally bad.

Summarizing my context, none of the medications I tried worked effectively for me. Ritalin had no noticeable impact, only causing insomnia. Elvanse was the best regarding reducing depression, but it didn’t provide the energy or motivation I needed. It made me feel tired and drained, suppressing my appetite and dehydrating me.

Given my frustration with medications, I decided to conduct a self-experiment. I couldn’t find any medication that addressed my depression, anxiety, and ADHD symptoms. My life has been slowly falling apart, and it affects my relationships and overall well-being. I’m either stressed and irritated or completely flat, wasting time with hyperfocus on meaningless tasks.

My self-experiment involves combining Wellbutrin, which I still have prescribed, with Elvanse. Wellbutrin alone feels like poison to me, causing anxiety, while Elvanse alone makes me feel tired and lacks action and motivation. However, when I previously took Wellbutrin, I experienced a bit of energy in the morning, which I don’t feel with Elvanse. So, I decided to try them together and document my experience in this video.

I want to emphasize that I’m not endorsing this self-experiment without medical guidance. I have consulted many doctors in the past and tried several medications, but none of them have worked. This is an attempt to find a solution while giving myself time to figure out the best course of action.

Today is the first day I took both medications together. I took 150 milligrams of Wellbutrin after lunchtime and 50 milligrams of Elvanse. Surprisingly, I feel really great. For the first time in my life, I don’t feel my heart beating rapidly, nor do I feel anxiety or fatigue. It’s almost 10 pm, and the effects are still present after approximately eight hours. I will continue to monitor and record my experience in the coming days, including any potential insomnia.

I’m sharing this experience to provide information to others, as there isn’t much available on this specific medication combination. I saw very few videos or articles discussing this, so I wanted to show my own experience. I will also communicate with my doctor and discuss the results. If this combination works, it could save my life and potentially help others who are struggling with similar issues.

I’m feeling positive and hopeful, and I already notice a difference in myself. I’m not constantly drowsy or experiencing the zombie-like effect I usually feel with medication. I’m genuinely happy to record this video, and I hope it helps you as well. I will provide updates on my progress, fingers crossed that it continues to work.

If you’re watching this video, and it’s working for me, it might work for you too. This combination could help a lot of people who are dealing with a lack of information in this area. I’ll talk to you tomorrow!
