Diagnosed with ADHD around age 4. Been on medications (Ritalin, Adderall, and most recently, Provigil.) During the adderall days, I got on Zoloft. Also got on some Geodon, Seroquel ... didn't stay on those crazy drugs for too long. In March of 2009, I weened myself off both the Provigil and Zoloft.
During the past 2 or 3 years, I have "experimented" with a lot of different PH's and all that (while on the above medications ... stupid, I know)
About a year or so ago ... I was diagnosed with severe hypoglycemia. Can't recall if its fasting or reactive hypo ...
Regardless, I need some help! I'm 20 years old ... deciding to stay away from PH's and all that for a while, I just can't handle them right now and not to mention, I'm probably too young. There are, IMO, too many factors when taking these, especially if your like me and you have taken zoloft for 4 years ... adderall and other stimulants for almost your whole life.
There are some things that have affected my performance of the late. Fatigue ... severe lethargy ... lack of motivation ... tired all the time for no reason at all ... can't focus ... Seems like after I tried my first Transdermal a few months ago ... Transform and Metamorphsis by Force of Green Labs everything went down hill ....
After talking with an expert on the board here, I was reccomnded to do several different things. I did them all. Still feeling a lot of these symptoms. In my head, I don't know what it is. I've got blood work done (basic blood work) to find I have a mild liver inflamation and high potassium levels. Didn't want to hear that news ... Bought some Cycle Assist for the liver.
I realize that I put my body through alot of strenous actiivty due to complete ignorance when using PH's and all the other crap. Not sure im my body is just telling me its had enough or what ...
I've been depending on high dosages of caffiene to help me make it through the day.
I really dont know waht to think about all this ... the diagnosis of hypoglycemia came into my head today and I thought maybe I've been dieting wrong and doin everything WRONG.
I'd like suggestions ... knowing the background above ... having hypolgycemia ... whats a good diet or lifestyle look like? I weigh about 190, 15% BF .... also wish to get that BF down and try to increase LBM while decreasing BF.
Don't know what kind of responses I'll get ... pray for the best of help!
