citrus soda

You know what else I don’t get about ADHD? We have to go through hell and back and bounce between doctors and psychologists for months to get diagnosed but once you do your doctor just writes you a prescription without any advice and without bothering to tell you that

  • you’re not supposed to eat grapefruit when taking ADHD medication
  •  you can’t eat or drink citrus fruit, soda, Gatorade, and anything carbonated an hour before and after taking your medication 
  • you should monitor your heart rate if you take the decongestant psuedophedrine when you have adderall in your system because it also has the side effect of increased heart rate 
  • you should really avoid caffeine when on adderall (haha I know we’re all hooked on caffeine) but lots of people with add feel like they need to be drinking a “study beverage” like coffee/energy drinks constantly while working. Give your adderall the 1-3 hours it needs to kick in before you do this, drink a placebo beverage like decaf tea instead

I’m not a pharmacist, none of this is medical advice, but as the girl who used to start her day with a whole grapefruit and glass of orange juice… I wish I’d known this. I got more instructions for my strep throat medication then I ever got for adderall.

re: mettaton’s popularity and fame in the au

ive gotten a bunch of asks asking about mettaton’s status and work!

in this human au, mettaton can be considered a micro-celebrity. he’s very popular online (mainly twitter and tumblr, however he also runs a wordpress blog that has gotten a lot of attention these years). he’s an internet personality by this point, and he’s been blogging since he was a tween.

he’s in no way a famous actor or singer, although he’s been taking acting lessons for a while since he dreams of becoming a big star. right now, he’s known for his youtube channel, his blog and his zines.
my biggest and most obvious inspiration for his popularity and aesthetic was Molly Soda. [he even owns two pet rats, Citrus and Soda!]

so no, he’s not a big deal to most people, and people don’t really recognize him unless they understand a lot of internet culture. the only person he knows IRL who knew about his celeb status before meeting him in person is Burgerpants.
