AD[H]D meds if you have debilitating AD[H]D. If it's just a vague lack of confidence and poor motivation, aripiprazole could be worth a try. A lot easier to get scripted than stimulants. I have all of those symptoms except hypersomnia, and stimulants have never been on the table in my appointments (even after directly asking for them).
I've not tried aripiprazole yet, but it's next on my list (already agreed with pdoc). Maybe it's not as good as it looks, but being a direct dopamine agonist proven for negative schizo symptoms & SSRI add-on for anhedonia etc., it certainly seems promising. If neither my current med combo nor aripiprazole work for my anhedonia / concentration / memory problems / cognitive quagmire / etc., I am screwed.
