  • How to get tested/dx for ADD

    I'm a 41yo woman. In the past 6 years I have been to 3 different (GP) doctors and asked each to schedule testing for ADD for me. The 1st told me I was just too busy in life. The 2nd (about 2 years later) told me he didn't believe in that dx. The 3rd (approximately 1&1/2 years ago) told me we would address it later. The 3rd Dr was part of the same network of Drs the 1st is part of. When I went in for a second visit with Dr3 I spoke with them about getting testing done. There were 0 notes....

    Need feedback please

    Hi. I was diagnosed as hyperactive as a kid but my mom pulled me off Ritalin because it made me zombie like. 30 years later I have been rediagnosed and prescribed concerta. I am a little scared to take it. I fear of being on medicine the rest of my life, I fear insomnia, I fear addiction - but I know medicine can be life changing in a great way as well. I'm back in school and have been struggling for 2 years to absorb material. I struggle daily with remembering or absorbing any conversations....

    What do I need to fix this?

    I will hear someone talking or teaching me but am unable to listen and understand what I just heard. My mind goes off into nothingness all the time. Even if my mind doesn’t do that I can even try repeating (im my head) what I’m hearing and still not rememb any of it. It makes day to day things difficult. I can’t keep conversation going, I can’t barely learn anything, I forget stuff all the time. What do I need to do?

    Please help.

    Hello! I am a junior in high school right now. I've always had trouble focusing on whatever anyone would say and can't understand direction until reading it slowly over and over again. I also daydream uncontrollably- sometimes to the extent of wasting 2-3 hours in one time doing so. In around 5thgrade, I would regularly sleep at around 12 am doing homework because I just could not focus. I would also keep bugging my friends to teach me what the teacher just taught because I could not focus....

    Long Term Effect

    I have been on my ADHD meds for 12 years and I am staring to get worried because I have had a lot of health problems recently that could be considered side effects of the drugs. But there doesn't seem to be much research on the long term effects of concerta. I have been taking it since I was 7 years old and my dosage only changed once when I was 8 or 9.
