My memory has gotten significantly worse in the last few months it seems. I write down everything in an agenda I take with me everywhere and even make notes in my phone but I somehow forget about them. Others are pointing it out now and it's put me in some embarrassing situations. Simple tasks take me forever to complete and I constantly forget what I'm doing or even talking about in the middle of a sentence, but it happens all thw time now. I keep putting things in strange places and then I can't find them for days...like putting the tv remote in the pantry and mail in the dryer...
I know that this is all part of having N but I'm concerned about how severe my forgetfulness is. I take Adderall ER 40mg a day. Has anyone had a similar experience and what can I do to help myself remember, other than notes? Has anyone had similar experiences on Adderall?
I am on adderal because I built up a tolerance to ritalin took up to 120mg a day at one point. New insurance restrictions limit me to 60mg. Now taking 60 of Adderal still not working well. I get very frustrated and upset with myself. Causes panic attacks and depression sometimes. Try getting tile I have one on my keys and one on my purse, the app on my phone. I allows me to locate items if I have at least one.
Perfect example. I had an appointment at 7am the other day. I had an alarm set for 6:40 that said "Leave for MD appointment at Mayo". I get up every morning at about 5:15. I was ready for the day by 6AM. I was just doing busy type of things.... Nothing important. I had all my stuff to take with me all ready by my purse and keys. The alarm went off at 6:40. I just turned it off!
Jk. I have had some memories return with Xyrem. Also my memory has improved significantly since treatment. I feel like I can remember better up to age 16 or so, then foggy til about 36 (20 years), then again good memory w Xyrem til now. Lol. I'm going to have this 20 year fog where I remember little, and then hopefully be good w everything else.
