For my ladies out there-do you find if you are using stimulants to help with fatigue not working during your monthly visitor?  

 

Today I felt like I took nothing!

I feel way more tired during my mentstrual cycle! 

I guess it makes sense....because fatigue during menstrual cycle is a symptom for women without N. 

So those of us with N will have that fatigue ON TOP of our normal fatigue. 

 

Are you able to supplement your regular stimulant dose?

 

I take Concerta and if I need a boost I can take some short acting ritalin. 

I don't supplement unless I really need to. But it really helps if you've got something going on in the evening and you feel totally zonked.

 

I also find that eating foods high in Iron during my cycle helps a lot too.

Hi Sleepy Days,

 

I can if I need to, but I usually take the weekends off.  I need to keep a tolerance in check.  I am worried I will be taking 170 mg Vyvanse by the year end lol
