    Adult ADHD and eye tics

    Hi there, I am a 34 year old female. I was diagnosed with ADHD about a month and a half ago and have been trying out medications. I noticed about a month in I was on Strattera and got a really bad eye tic. I was squinting and closing my eyes really really tight. Also my head would jerk but I think that was a reaction to the stress and pressure of the extreme squinting. I stopped that medication and am no on something that seems to be working.

My parents did not believe in it and ignored and were insulted by teacher conferences where....

    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....
