Before Medicaid stopped paying for Adderall I was attending classes at the local office technologies school, I was doing activities outside my home, and I rarely had to use my Lorazepam. Now I am concentrating on getting back to where I was before the medication switch but it is very hard. I stopped attending classes, I rarely left home and I would stay home-in my bedroom all day and night.
