    SEVERE ADHD

    I need some suggestions beyond patience, etc. I work with a woman who moves constantly at lightening speed (not exaggerating), speaks at lightening speed, and the mere mention that something may need to be done evokes immediate action to head up the project....consistently. It is becoming a problem of great proportions as others in the office need to be able to shine and bring their expertise into certain situations. Our ADHD gal takes others ideas and promotes them immediately. She moves from project to project quickly getting them done randomly never seeming to run out of energy. She is cheerful and hardworking but as a manager I'm up against others who just do not know how to handle her always taking over and accomplishing everything before others have a chance. She immediately begins coercing others to assist her in all projects so she can say that she included others, but they never really get a chance to give a lot of input.
    Any suggestions?

    Thank you!

    I have severe adult ADD and have to take supplements to be able to focus at work. I took Adderall and/or Vyvance for 15 years, and after being diagnosed with colon cancer (I'm presently cancer-free) had to stop taking prescription amphetamines. For the record, I cannot say that the amphetamines caused the malignant polyps, but my doctor's advice was to cease taking the RX medication.

    I've found a combination of the following amino acids, nuerotransmitters and other natural compounds to be of tremendous help in boosting my productivity and focus: L-Tyrosine, L-Methionine, DL Phenlaline, Alpha GPC (choline) as well as a legal product that has not undergone FDA scrutiny called Piracetam, which research shows helps with choline uptake and binding to the receptors in the brain (choline is responsible for working memory).

    I get the FDA-approved products in two combo supplements here: https://www.bonanza.com/listings/Brain-Energy/289554224 and https://www.bonanza.com/listings/Brain-Memory/289558263 .

    I won't link Piracetam because the FDA has not declared it "safe for consumption" (although other research has - Google it if interested), but everything else is in those two supplements and IMO, they work like magic.

    There's also a product called Balance D available at the same site that boosts Dopamine production, thereby helping improve focus and drive.

    Has this person disclosed that they have ADD? It seems as if they might do better in a position with more independence. Do you have any of those available?

    Or is she still employed. Seems as if from the post, no one could or wanted to "deal with her". Not sure of the laws in your state or what type of employer you work for but. Was just curious if she's still employed.
