Dopamine? Blood tests? Family member is struggling with ADHD and extremely resistant to therapy, so zero hope there. He’s trying to adopt a 10-20 min (baby steps) daily meditation practice, which he says help…when he can make it happen. He’s otherwise generally healthy. But he needs a hand. I see him struggle and am trying to come up with ways. Also interested in short but inspiring TED talks on the subject of (embracing?) overcoming adult ADHD (gifts?) challenges.
He does take a low dose of Adderall (prescribed by his PCP), which he says helps some. He’s 50s, super smart, eats well, fairly fit though covid changed his lifestyle significantly and he used to get a lot more cardio. I think he hydrates and works on his sleep, though yes, screen time is an issue for him–he’s a news junkie. He’s been a stay-at-home dad off and on for many years and now newly certified in a data tool and looking for work. He worries about being able to focus in a new job. I see him every morning for zoom coffee (we’re hours apart), and he is clearly having a rough time. I think his ADHD is crippling him. Lack of focus, poor sleep, worry about job performance. And sadly his spouse has little patience or empathy around this. Could be depression as well (I know they’re connected). He’s really trying on the meditation, and expressed some interest when I said I’d read about a connection to dopamine levels and possibly him trying supplements.
Curious if you’ve found success with supplements and what they are.
Also, is it necessary/helpful to get a blood test to determine levels for supplementation?
Is there any harm to be caused?
And… anything else you have to offer that frankly might be low-hanging fruit for someone really struggling to get anything done each day. Thanks.
