    Son Showing Negative Side Affects of Adderall?

    Our young adult son lives with us and is currently unable to work due to serious mental health issues. About 6 weeks ago, his psychiatrist added Adderall to the several other medications he takes for anxiety, depression, PTSD, nightmares, flashbacks and difficulty sleeping. He was tested positive for ADHD about 3 years ago but then began having the mental health issues so the psychiatrist waited to prescribe the Adderall. He had started to exhibit some minor behavioral changes shortly after starting....

  • Hyperfocus

    Hi all, I notice a lot of people on this board sharing their experience with inattention and more so about the hyperactive side of ADHD. I, however, experienced a side of ADHD that is equally as impacting but not as often talked about which is frustrating. A lot of people might view hyperfocus as a good thing, and in some very rare and few cases it is. However, while I'm focusing so heavily on ONE thing for days, weeks and months, my entire world is falling apart around me. I've lost so many....

    Need feedback please

    Hi. I was diagnosed as hyperactive as a kid but my mom pulled me off Ritalin because it made me zombie like. 30 years later I have been rediagnosed and prescribed concerta. I am a little scared to take it. I fear of being on medicine the rest of my life, I fear insomnia, I fear addiction - but I know medicine can be life changing in a great way as well. I'm back in school and have been struggling for 2 years to absorb material. I struggle daily with remembering or absorbing any conversations....
  • Best Explanation Yet

    I just got my WebMD ADHD newsletter. I clicked a couple links and found myself reading "What's It Really Like to Have ADHD?" I'm 65 and have been reading stuff on ADHD for a very long time. The article is by far the most accurate ever. One point in particular got a hearty laugh out of me. "When you live with a person who has ADHD, you realize that there is no one on Earth who would put that much effort into failing over and over again." It's a must read. I'd post....

    I have lived my entire life with undiagnosed AD/HD...

    Hi, My name is Kerry, I'm 18 years old and I'm currently in college. My close friend told me I should get tested on AD/HD and I did, my psychiatrist diagnosed me with Anxiety and Depression, but is still not fully convinced of my AD/HD diagnosis. He says I'll start with stimulant medications soon. I talked to him about my struggles and he thought the AD/HD wasn't the root of my problems, he thought Anxiety and Depression were, but I'm 100% convinced that I have AD/HD. I've....

    Vyvanse

    Hello, So I have been on Vyvanse for about a year now, and am subject to random urine tests. Well, I had a urine test done 2 weeks ago, and my psychiatrist called me on the phone and told me that no amphetamines showed up on my urine, and immediately began accusing myself and my family of things that I would never do. I waited a long time to get in to see the psychiatrist and therapist, as I have children and a family to care for. I cannot function without my meds, and they have told me that unfortunately....

    Managing ADHD Medication

    I have ADHD. I'm 16. I take Adderall to help me in school because I struggle extremely bad without it. I've take. It for three years. this year I seem to not be able to handle my meds for some reason. I kept having to re-start taking it to get my body use to it. I'm always angry in the afternoon and flip out at everyone and everything. I fight with everyone and I can't handle it. Why is this or what can I do to help this side effect.
