    42 yr old male - Am I losing my mind?

    I have started taking notes on instances that I have had in the past couple of weeks. In the last year, things have started to become more frequent and is starting to really frustrate me. Sorry I can't sum up what is going on so I am just pasting in my notes. Thank you in advance: I have done this multiple times. I have locked the house to leave for the day and as soon as I get to the car, I don’t remember if I locked the doors and would have to go back into the house. Daughter came down from....

  • I have ADHD

    Hi i'm a 13 year old who is in middle school. I tend to always get lossed in my thoughts,I have one thought after another. People say i'm very intelligent for my age, but i believe that if they knew my struggles they maybe would think different of me . Im a huge procrastinator. so every night I have homework I never get it done until the next day in between classes. which surprisingly I end up getting it done and getting a A or A+ on it , (so yea i get the honor role) but I just can't....

    ADHD high school

    So I was diagnosed not only with ADHD but also with dyslexia when I was five and luckily my mom was a huge help and got me into some tutoring stuff that has really helped me, but I still show some of the symptoms of ADHD, but no one notices them for what they are. They just see me as weird and I get bullied for my behavior all the time and no one seems to understand, and when I do tell people that I have ADHD and dyslexia they just say that I'm lying because of the tutoring I got so much help....

    Elvanse wearing off, any ideas of what next?

    My son is 12 and just started in high school. Over the summer he changed from short acting methylphenidate (long acting doesnt last enough) to Elvanse and is on 70mg. He does really well til around 1pm when symptoms return and it is causing issues. Has this happened to anyone else? I am waiting to speak with his Adhd nurse to see what they suggest. Finding it really difficult and worried about what options there are for other meds. Grateful for any advice or experience.

    Low Dose Adderall

    Hello, First time posting. I am a 44 year old male who has been taking Adderall for the past two years. I find that 7.5 mg in the morning and 7.5mg in the afternoon work well for me. I am thinking about switching to 20mg Adderall XR. Have any adults out there had experience with taking that low dose then switching to the 20mg Adderall XR?
  • Ask me a question

    I am 13 and have ADHD, I am on 54 mg of concerta. I am 13, but I know more about ADHD than most people twice my age. 13 is young, that does not mean I am immature. People on here post about newly diagnosed or they think they have ADHD. And to those people (and most other adhd people) a 13 year old telling them about it seems crazy. But age does not take away the fact that I have ADHD. It affects me the most too. Now skip through this because you have adhd. I will talk about various things and I hope....

    Psychiatrist eval

    I’m 26 female and I have been on adderall since I was 16. I am switching primary care due to new insurance and I have to have a new evaluation done. I’m not keen on this because I have seen three psychiatrists in the past. I don’t see why I need another evaluation and I have to take two days off from work to have another appointment with my new primary care doctor about getting my refill and then go to this new psychiatrist two weeks later and miss work again for an evaluation. I also start a new....

    Too much concerta?

    Can I demand my Dr reduce my 12 year old daughter's concerta dosage from 54mg back to 36mg which she had been on? She complains about tiredness and not "feeling like herself" and is not doing any better in school. She's also a late bloomer and barely 80 lbs.
