  • How to get tested/dx for ADD

    I'm a 41yo woman. In the past 6 years I have been to 3 different (GP) doctors and asked each to schedule testing for ADD for me. The 1st told me I was just too busy in life. The 2nd (about 2 years later) told me he didn't believe in that dx. The 3rd (approximately 1&1/2 years ago) told me we would address it later. The 3rd Dr was part of the same network of Drs the 1st is part of. When I went in for a second visit with Dr3 I spoke with them about getting testing done. There were 0 notes....

    Please help.

    Hello! I am a junior in high school right now. I've always had trouble focusing on whatever anyone would say and can't understand direction until reading it slowly over and over again. I also daydream uncontrollably- sometimes to the extent of wasting 2-3 hours in one time doing so. In around 5thgrade, I would regularly sleep at around 12 am doing homework because I just could not focus. I would also keep bugging my friends to teach me what the teacher just taught because I could not focus....

    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. The only problem is I am still squinting, not as but but....

    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....

    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....

    ADHD

    Hello, I am looking for advice on the difference between Adderall X-r and amphetamine salts XR. I was diagnosed with ADHD in elementary school and after trying multiple we found adderall worked best for me. I was on it through highschool but stopped my senior year. I recently started it again about a year ago at the age of 23. This time I have been taking only the generic brand amphetamine salts XR. I was prescribed a low dosage because I remembered it making me moody. Now I'm up to 30 mg and....
