    Caveats for finally getting treatment for ADD as middle aged person?

    I was recently diagnosed with ADD, something I'm realizing I probably had my whole life. Are there any concerns, caveats I should be worried about with regard to taking medication for ADD as an adult? I guess my main concern is that I'll realize what I've been missing all along and want to be treated in perpetuity because I just feel more mentally capable. Opinions?

    Cup of coffee with Vyvanse??

    I used to take Concerta for my ADHD all the way through grade school and stopped after I graduated. Almost 3 years later I am back on medicine, but this time it is Vyvanse. I am a serious coffee enthusiast and enjoy a cup or two of the wonderful drink most days. On days when I do drink coffee while on the medicine, I seem tense and have a elevated heart rate. The medicine already increases your heart rate, but I don't know how much is from the medicine or how much is from combining both the medicine....

  • ADHD Med side effects

    My daughter was diagnosed as ADHD two years ago. (I thought more ADD rather than ADHD because she just couldn't focus on school.) Seemed like every time we went to the doctor she was increasing her Adderal dose. In August the increase bumped her up to 30mg. Not cool!! I found out that she was self harming and had a plan to commit suicide. In October she told me she didn't like the way they were making her feel and refused to take them. I contacted the doctor and she finally was able to see....

    Adderall

    Is it true in the state of Illinois that a doctor cannot prescribe you Adderall in the state of Illinois if you show up positive of non medical marijuana? I have never had a problem with any provider about marijuana in my system until now.

    Getting Re-Prescribed ADD Medication?

    I was diagnosed with ADD when I was 14. I was prescribed Concerta, and it seemed to work good. Right about when I was 18 maybe a little sooner It was switched to a generic version because generics were approved or whatever the reason was so Insurance would only cover the generic. My dose was 36 mg of Concerta and it switched to something else not sure the name but it was only like 9 mg of something. I stopped taking it before my second 30 day prescription was up. It wasn't doing what it was originally....

    Does is seem like my ADHD diagnosis was wrong?

    I've known many people with adhd and none of them seem to struggle as much as I do. I don't know how to keep friendships or make friendships. I'm just awkward I don't know what to say or how to act. I have no desire to fit into society but I still want to be loved. I don't know the symptoms of asburgers very well. I learn slower than others. By a great deal. I'm constantly told to grow up even though I don't know what exactly the person is getting at. As a kid I would....
