    Is it possible to relapse from ADD?

    I haven't taken my behavioral science block yet, but with finals rolling up soon and my attention slowly waning, I have been generating a few burning questions. I was diagnosed with ADD at age 12, and was using Concerta to control my ADD. Somewhere in the middle of highschool I was weaned off and was able to make proficient grades with out worry of distractions of day dreaming events up through my 4 years of college. Now back into medical school I am beginning to experience those forgetful and....

    What is a normal dose of Adderall for ADHD?

    I have been on 60mg of Adderall XR/day in the past, but attempted to stop taking it because I found out it can be habit forming and I have a history of addiction. I never abused it though, and found my symptoms to be too much to handle without the medication. I went back to my psychiatrist and explained the situation. She knows I have been clean/sober for over 9 years, and felt there was no reason for concern, but agreed to try a lower dose anyway. I was started back on 15mgs/day. Now we have decided....

    Minor swelling and itchiness after Adderall wears off.

    Occasionally some spots on my feet will become slightly swollen and itchy during the comedown from my 20mg Adderall XR. It doesn't happen every time but often enough to be annoying. I've been on Adderall for 6 years although this only started happening in the last year. I only take Adderall 2-3 days a week right now due to all of my classes being on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    The connection between ADD and sleep apnea

    A search on WebMD for "connection between ADD and sleep apnea" produced no results. There were separate results for ADD and sleep apnea, but none for a relationship between the two. That's why I shared my story on Facebook, at https://www.facebook.com/notes/jay-spencer/tear-down-this-wall/2072634689430553/ Short version: 20 years after my diagnosis with ADD (at age 49), I was diagnosed with sleep apnea. One month after using a CPAP machine, I no longer needed any medicine. The medication....
