ADHD medication

Hi everyone.

so i have recently started meditation for my ADHD. Only on 30mg at the moment, but im already starting to see the effect (positively).

my question to you all though os does / has the medication affected your decision making? My marriage is on the ropes, and ive been considering a trial separation? However im unsure if its me or the medication making the decision. Appreciate its a tricky question to answer but just wondering if anyone had any thoughts?

    to add, when the medication is ‘kicking in’ im confident in my decision, but when it runs out (evening) im in 2 minds. Typically the adhd kicks in then and i start researching flats or feel intense guilt about leaving my children. 
    Like most people on this forum its abit of a roller coaster!

    This is a tricky question as you say @38adhd it does sound like a bit of a rollercoaster for you. I can't remember if we've chatted before, so I'm sorry if I'm repeating myself, but have you spoken to your GP about the effects the medication might have while you're still adjusting to it? 

    Can I ask if you're getting any other support for your mental health at the moment?
