Thanks! I will bring these up with my PDoc. He is very "by the book' however so I don't expect to get anywhere. IIRC we did look at Guanfacine but he didn't like it in the end for some reason.

:( it's the "best" I've found to date and it's only the stimulants that make me semi-functional.

> If you haven't already you may wish to experiment to find the right ratio of Adderall to Ritalin. Ritalin can (dose-dependently, to a degree) inhibit the action of Adderall.

Oo-er, I didn't know that. My mood (and pain and IBS) is so unpredictable, even when on a constant regimen, that I'm afraid I'll never be able to discover the best ratio.

> If you have trouble with opioid tolerance, I recommend trying memantine or opioid rotation.

Cool, thanks I'll look into that. Thank you for your help, it's much appreciated.
