  1. 1:30 It's not only because of the stimulant medication. I'm pretty sure people with adhd are more likely to skip breakfast; medicated or unmedicated. Because preparing breakfast involves executive functions, requires time in the morning so you've got to get up on time – harder with adhd – get to bed on time – harder with adhd.
    Before I got diagnosed I still went through cycles of "I enjoy breakfast I should buy some bread for toast" (not high in protein but that's not the point). I'd have breakfast two times then a week later throw out the moldy bread thinking "didn't I just buy this bread?… No wait that was a week ago"

  2. If I don’t have a high protein breakfast within 30 mins of taking my medication, it makes me crash within 3 hours, until I eat my next meal and I’m alive again.

  3. I just started taking Vyvanse. Would you eat breakfast before taking the medication? What is best for a good sustained release with few side effects?

  4. What I do now is take my 40mg vyvanse and bc it takes an hour, i’ll work out in the meantime and drink a protein shake, and I think it does make a difference; the pump, the meds, and protein combined

  5. Do you know if there is any correlation between caffeine tolerance and vyvanse tolerance? It takes a large amount of caffeine to make me feel any different, does this mean it will take a larger dose of vyvanse to start seeing positive effects?

  6. Battling ADHD for 10 years, married for 8. I’m desperate for a marriage theorapist that understands ADHD. This is hard to find, I’m reaching out for help. Any location is an option. Thanks.

  7. I know this is old but I wanted to leave a comment in case it might help someone. Everyone is different. For me, I can't eat anything around the time I take my meds or they don't work. I do intermittent fasting so I basically skip breakfast and don't eat after dinner. You just get all of your daily calories in during the "eating hours" so you aren't missing out on anything. This has been the best option for me personally. I am on an extended release though so that may make a difference.

  8. Do you think people with ADHD shouldn't do intermittent fasting for this reason? I've done did it for fitness goals and the apparent life extending health benefits.
