Nootropics Expert | The Authority on Nootropic Supplements

Hi David,So Im relatively new to Nootropics. I have done extensive reading on your website, but had a specific help question. Below is a brief summary of my medicated world of mental health:

Last year, a psychiatrist diagnosed me with Anxiety induced ADHD. (Which explained a lot of my academic struggles, feelings of self-worth, etc.)

She started out by prescribing me a Sustained Release (generic version of) Wellbutrin. (150mg) This helped considerably with my feelings of fatigue and lethargy, but didnt do very much in terms of motivation/focus/desire to study or get work done. (I am both a teacher and a student) She had also prescribed some sort of non-addictive anti-anxiety medication which made me feel ill (so I discontinued use within just a few days.)

I like to think Im very aware of both my body and my mind Ive practiced yoga for close to ten years now. I try to eat healthfully, and I try to practice self-care as much as possible.

About 7 months ago, though my doctor added Adderall (combination dosage 20mg XR & 20 mg IR) to my regimen p/day. That, and a new hormonal birth control, has really thrown my life off kilter.

At first, Adderall helped with getting all my work done! Staying focused, on-task, memory, etc. But more recently, I have experienced increased irritability and strong fits of anger(paired with a seemingly greater tolerance to Adderall? It seems to last for a shorter time.)

I have been trying to track how these emotional reactions relate to the time of the month, but is increasingly difficult to track the timing of my mood swings. (My partner has also noticed a change in my behavior.)

I try to take breaks from Adderall, but I find it quite difficult with an increased workload as of late. The days I do take breaks, I get by with combination Caffeine/L-Theanine.

Research into Nootropics, though, gives me hope that there is a better solution for my struggles.

What would you recommend? Ive looked at your suggestions for ADHD and Anxiety (separately), I was just wondering if there was something youd suggest based on my current RX. (I would like to taper off of prescription drugs, ideally. Perhaps come summer time, when I experience a true break, I will be able to relax more with a decreased work schedule

My current idea for a stack includes: Vitamin B-complex, L-theanine, L-tyrosine, Magnesium. Perhaps a cycled 5HTP? (for when PMS is nearly debilitating)

Anyways, if youve read this far, I sincerely appreciate it! Thank you in advance for your consideration.

All the best,M.
