I was recently diagnosed with ADHD, and part of the treatment, is treatment with medication. There are a wide range of stimulants commonly used, and their dosage varies person to person.
As far as I understand, the right dosage and medication is a balance between controlling ADHD symptoms, and producing unwanted side effects (such as insomnia, irritability).
The problem I'm having, is 'How do I know if the medication is working?'. It's kind of hard to measure this stuff from a subjective, retrospective viewpoint in a doctor's appointment once a month.
What might be effective is an app that regularly polls you for a response to the severity of ADHD symptoms and medication side effects.
I did ask this question here, but it got no response:
Are there any softwares specifically designed for monitoring ADHD or mood disorders?
