    I get very easily disoriented and confused when reading directions

    I used to love to read but no longer can concentrate on the book I have in my hand. I am not able to code my websites anymore when other people give me code to insert and understand because I get SO confused and lost. Reading code longer than a half of a sentence confuses me and I get LOST! I lose my place and have to start over when reading a book. Are these ADD type issues?

    Advice

    I don't know where to start.. I'm 19 currently in college, I've struggled with a lot since I was in grade 8 or 9 or so.. a couple years ago I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and then pre menstrual disphoric disorder. More recently ADHD, I'm not on any medications for that but I have been pretty stable on lamotrigine and nuvaring for the other things (though I suspect they need to up the dose or the lamotrigine). Anyways, for over a year I have done HORRIBLE in school, failed pretty....

    Simultaneous Diagnoses 799.51 and f90.9

    My teenage son was diagnosed 799.51 (Attention and Concentration Deficit) and F90.9 (ADHD) in the same evaluation. Everything I can find online about 799.51 states that it excludes ADHD. I am trying to figure out what this means and the only stuff I can find says that 799.5X codes are for traumatic brain injuries. Can he be diagnosed with both? I was not present for the evaluation or even informed that it was happening (my ex authorized it and didn't tell me) and was only recently informed of....

    Vyvanse stopped working.

    Prescribed Vyvanse ~2 months ago, gradually increased dose from 30mg to 60mg. 60mg worked well for about 1.5 weeks and now I don't feel like it does anything. I know that the upper dosing limit is recommended to be 70mg, but with how ineffective 60mg feels, I worry even the upper limit won't help. Why have I built up a tolerance so fast? What other medications should I ask my MD about that may offer me better symptom relief?
  • I have a few questions

    I'm trying to figure out what's going on with my attention span and why I'm having such a difficult time concentrating. I just began highschool, and it's a bit rough. Throughout my school years, I've been known to have average grades or even exceeding ones with subjects I enjoy. Such as English, that's my only honors class right now. However, we've began to start reading a lot of different stories and novels. It's expected to constantly go through a lot of them within....

    Antidepressands/ADHD MEDS and Alcohol

    Hi there. My collage age son is on 100mg of Prestiq and 1mg of Rexhulti and takes 40mg of Vyvance each day and now 15mg of Amphetamine IR. He was on many other antidepressants and ADHD meds in the past two year, overmedicated for sure. He was diagnosed with mild depression senior year of high school after having Mono. He has always shown signs of mild ADHD but he managed it by doodling while in school then listening to music while doing HW at home. So the issue is that he drinks one to two times....

    Can I get permission for my girlfriend to help administer my Vyvanse for me?

    I recently got prescribed Vyvanse and it's worked wonders for me. Even though I'm supposed to take it every day, I've noticed that when I take it too many days in a row I start feeling kinda like a zombie. I take a number of different supplements to replenish the nutrients that amphetamines deplete. This helps, but the only real way to prevent this from happening is if I make sure to only take it 5 days a week or fewer to give my body time to recover. I don't really trust myself not....
