    Older adult with ADD

    I am 59 and have suffered/struggled with procrastination, disorganization and racing thoughts since a child. Only relief found in OTC medication containing pseudo ephedrine. UGH. Who has found a caregiver that doesn't suspect you are looking for prescription meds for nefarious purposes? Symptoms worsening with age, just lost my job. Very unhappy and feeling depressed, hopeless. Did start OTC Sam-E supplement and think it is helping, based on reference from Dr Amen website. Not cheap BTW. Help....

    Adderall and ADHD in adults

    Hello, I'm a 52 yr old mom of 1, grandma of 3 and just want to tell others that there IS help for adults w/ ADHD. I was diagnosed at age 40 and it changed my life. I went back to college and finally got my Associates in Human Services!! Yay me! When I was a child up into my late teens, my parents were told I was a dreamer, that I never finished anything, I was lazy, possibly "slow," etc,etc...and I would just up and walk out of the class when I got too bored, ( my poor parents!) and....
  • At wits end.. where to go from here?

    My girlfriend has had ADHD her entire life.. she has had many treatments as a child as well as an adult but mainly focusing on depression. Within the last couple of years we purchased personal medical insurance (high monthly premiums) with kaiser. We have gone through so many doctors first testing her blood for thyroid problems which have been cleared many times, then they tried prescribing her anti depressants and later muscle relaxers which was a nightmare how she couldn't stop twitching for....

    ADHD Medication Side Effects

    Hello, I am a 23 year old woman diagnosed with ADHD (inattentive type) last year. The medicine has helped TREMENDOUSLY. I never knew what it was like to be normal, to not have a million thoughts constantly running through your head. But with the medication came side effects. I currently take 20 mg Adderall everyday, and no medication on the weekend. I used to take the full 20 mg dose at once, but I noticed it would cause mood swings (I would feel estatic and then 5 hours later feel annoyed). Now....

    Both parents and my brother have ADD, is it likely that I have it?

    Like the title says, everyone in my immediate family has ADD. I just turned 18, by the way. First part, is it likely that I have it too since both parents have it? Second, I have several bad habits and I'm curious if ADD may contribute. I pick and bite my fingernails, sometimes to the point where they get so low it draws blood. I impulsively pull and tug at my bottom lip with my left hand, I pick at the skin around my thumbnails all the time, I pop my knuckles nearly constantly, and I grind my....

    I don't know what's happening to me, but I think it's something to do with ADHD.

    I am a 13 year old and I was normal once but that stopped a couple years ago.Now let me tell you I was always way too hyper, But then I noticed that I had problems with my sleep, I would wake up several times a night, I couldn't fall asleep, etc. I mean the basic stuff. But then this happened, I started to forget, everything. People started to call me Dory because of my forgetfulness. If I did remember that I had, for example, homework, I would do it at the last minute. And not in a rebellious....
