    My experience

    When I was in 3rd grade I was diagnosed with adhd I took so many different meds until I found the right one. When I was in 7th grade my doctor told my mom about this patch called daytrana. It was great my mom could stick it on me before I even woke up and it made mornings soo much easier. As I got older I had to increase my dosages but sadly I out grew the medication. I tried probably 3 different medications and found one that worked for me as an adult. I took it for a while and then I thought I’m ok I don’t need this anymore so I stopped taking it and I haven’t taken it since. I’m now 20 years old and I’m realizing I was wrong and I need to start taking it again. I didn’t realize all the things that I was doing was because of my adhd like I can’t finish a conversation. When I’m at work I put things off until the deadline. I also get very angry and I have no anger management usually I just end up crying. I have set up a doctors appointment and I’m taking the steps I need to get my adhd under control. I guess I don’t need any support or answers I just needed a place to talk about these things that nobody around me understands. If Anyone does read all of this and does reply I will read it and I would love to talk more.

    The daytrana patches are effective in helping to reduce excessive activity and impulsive behavior and increase attention, which is especially effective for adolescents and children with ADHD.

    Never heard of that patch thing. But awesome that it worked great for you at the times. Having someone to talk to that understands and gets ya is important. Something most of us don't have. So hi and I hope you are doing better again now. I will visit with you if you ever need to just vent or need advice or to understand something or just relate. I have had adhd for my whole life and it's been my greatest prevail every day lol.

    Hi! I’m so glad I came across your post. My nine year old has been diagnosed with ADHD since he was 3 and mornings are our biggest issue waiting for his meds to kick in. No one has ever mentioned there was a patch that could possibly help us. Just wanted to thank you for sharing as now I have a little bit of hope, at least until I contact the doctor to ask about it.

    I also have ADHD . But exactly do not know which type . It’s mix or in attentive type. Unfortunately in India we do not have coaches yet and it very costly to Hire one online.
