    Adderall and ADHD in adults

    Hello, I'm a 52 yr old mom of 1, grandma of 3 and just want to tell others that there IS help for adults w/ ADHD. I was diagnosed at age 40 and it changed my life. I went back to college and finally got my Associates in Human Services!! Yay me! When I was a child up into my late teens, my parents were told I was a dreamer, that I never finished anything, I was lazy, possibly "slow," etc,etc...and I would just up and walk out of the class when I got too bored, ( my poor parents!) and....

    Can I get permission for my girlfriend to help administer my Vyvanse for me?

    I recently got prescribed Vyvanse and it's worked wonders for me. Even though I'm supposed to take it every day, I've noticed that when I take it too many days in a row I start feeling kinda like a zombie. I take a number of different supplements to replenish the nutrients that amphetamines deplete. This helps, but the only real way to prevent this from happening is if I make sure to only take it 5 days a week or fewer to give my body time to recover. I don't really trust myself not....

    Anxiety

    Last week, for the first time ever, I went to speak with a councilor at my college. I am 30, a FT (returning) student and FT manager and am feeling overwhelmed in my last semester before graduation. I have been throwing up when I wake up on busy days for nearly a year. I have panic attacks about twice a month which numb my face and blur my hearing. I believe that most of my anxiety is related to untreated ADD. My parents did not believe in it and ignored and were insulted by teacher conferences where....

    Advice

    I don't know where to start.. I'm 19 currently in college, I've struggled with a lot since I was in grade 8 or 9 or so.. a couple years ago I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and then pre menstrual disphoric disorder. More recently ADHD, I'm not on any medications for that but I have been pretty stable on lamotrigine and nuvaring for the other things (though I suspect they need to up the dose or the lamotrigine). Anyways, for over a year I have done HORRIBLE in school, failed pretty....

    Dark circles under eyes after adderall use.

    I've been taking adderall for almost 6 months now and one of the side effects I'm experiencing is dark circles under my eyes. I take plenty of vitamins everyday, drink enough water, and get plenty of sleep everyday but still the dark circles persist. Any suggestions as how to get rid of the dark circles and perhaps an explanation as to why I have them? Thank in advance.

    I get very easily disoriented and confused when reading directions

    I used to love to read but no longer can concentrate on the book I have in my hand. I am not able to code my websites anymore when other people give me code to insert and understand because I get SO confused and lost. Reading code longer than a half of a sentence confuses me and I get LOST! I lose my place and have to start over when reading a book. Are these ADD type issues?
