    ADHD or Something Else?

    Hello. I am 16, going on 17, and I've been diagnosed with ADHD since I was 5 years old. My mother has it and my grandfather on her side does too. My mother has a more concentrated form of it, but there are a lot of things she doesn't understand when it comes to mine when I try to explain. I was wondering if what I notice is still ADHD or if it is something else. I've tried looking it up, but you know the internet. Type in any symptoms and it turns out I have cancer and 53 other diseases....

    Upset about my child

    My daughter has been diagnosed with ADHD. I watched a video with Dr. Russel Barkley and found it very upsetting! Understanding how severe this problem is. Pediatric dr made light of it. Even psychologist didn't make it sound that bad. I am upset and overwhelmed and very sad.

    Weird Vyvanse side effect

    I'm a 28 year-old male and I've had chronic depression for about 12 years. I've been on several different medications and am currently on Pristiq for depression. About a year ago, my doctor surveyed me for ADD and prescribed Vyvanse. I have some weird effects from it. I usually take it around 7:45 AM. Around 8:45, I start to feel pretty good, but around 9:30, I always start feeling strange. It's almost a sense of impending doom. I feel myself almost wanting to cry for no real reason....
  • Vyvanse and Zoloft

    My dr prescribed me 100 mg zoloft and 30 mg of vyvanse a few days ago. I have been taking zoloft for two years. I normally take my Zoloft at night and my vyvanse in the morning. I forgot to take it last night so I did as I usually do and took it as soon as I remembered today. The first two days when I took my Zoloft at night I had no problems. Today how ever, I became very disoriented, had a racing heart and tremors after taking them at the same time in the morning. My dr told me to take my Zoloft....
  • Focalin xr/ safety

    My son mother has put him on focalin xr for two years now. He started at 5mg and gradually bump him up to 20mg. There are days where the meds hit him really hard and days where it really doesn't. He won't eat sometimes in till the meds were off and he does not want to do anything thru out the day. Im worried he will lose lots of weight and just get sick or something... My question is ... Is it ok for him to miss a dosage or two on weekends or non schools days?? So that I can bring his weight....

    Addicted to Someone

    Hello, I was in a long-term extra-marital affair with a woman that recently ended (but that I don't think I want to end...I really don't know!). I fell for her not because of the physical attraction, but because of her mind. She is quick and smart and whenever I talked to or chatted with her I felt alive like I have never felt before. I found myself (I'm not really sure how to describe this) completely lost in her world. I find myself constantly looking at an app on my phone to see when....

    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....
