  • Adult ADHD & alcohol

    Hello, I am 24 years old and have been diagnosed since childhood with ADHD. My mother refused for me to take medicine for it and I haven't started yet. I read an article on her about alcohol consumption and ADHD. I was wondering am I supposed to avoid alcohol overall or consume it in moderation? Was the warning because of the risk of addiction or was it deeper entrenched in the chemicals in my brain? Thank you!

    ADD with no drug avail

    I've been diagnosed with ADD by 3 different psychiatrists.

    Child Weight Gain From Stopping Adderall?

    Our child (age 10) takes 20mg XR Adderall in the morning before school just to help with concentration on school work and tests. The school also gives him a second smaller dose (5mg) in the afternoon as sort of a "booster" for the rest of the day. We usually take him off the medication during the summer because during the times when he doesn't have school you can't even tell there is a problem since he is not hyper. I have read that stooping Adderall can cause a large weight gain....
