Im new to this forum but after reading your post I feel its almost exactly what swim
has gone through.
First thing first is u have to know whether your daughter wants to quit the meth
. Everyone says they want to quit but to actually go through with it, its a long route to it.
Secondly, to actually stop doin meth, one has to stay totally away from it. In other words, stop the association from people using meth.
Now the part about medication, I, myself suffer from ADHD. SWIM used meth to self medicate for a period of time. To further explain, cuz prescribed medication for ADHD has similar strain of chemicals of amphetamines
, meth u could say in a way medicates people suffering from ADHD. When swim was addicted to meth, they actually came to a point where they needed to use meth to put self to sleep. Why so? Well.... reason behind it I feel is ADHD people tend to find it hard to sleep because their minds are constantly on the move. They are hyper physically n mentally. So sleeping was an issue for SWIM when they were tryin to quit... but thats off the topic ... will further explain if anyone needs more info....
Anywayz, SWIM is using concerta
and frankly speakin to actually get off meth with that medication is hard. in fact gettin off meth with n e prescribed medication will be hard.
2 big reasons behind this is:
1) the purity of meth is at least 10 times higher then any precribed medication. the toxicity of meth therefore is alot higher too. which leads to my first statement whether ur daughter is ready to quit....
2) concerta contains similar but has different chemicals within that actually doesn't provide the so called "high" what your daughter wants to feel
But anyway, just to answer your question, from taking various types of ADHD medication, the closest one I feel that could help is ritalin
or dexamphetamine. But because your daughter has been using meth for self medicational purpose. the amounts she has to take will be alot higher then precribed to actually get her off it.
If you still need more info ... feel free to pm me ...
