    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....

    Living with ADHD and extreme anxiety from a 15 year old perspective

    year 10s perspective on living with ADHD and extreme anxiety. I teach this boy. He has decided to speak out about what it is like living with ADHD and extreme anxiety. Please should you wish to share so together we can break down stereotypes and misconceptions. (Link at the bottom). This is because he wants to show people in particular the so called educators what life behind the label and judgement is REALLY like. However, most importantly "if I can help anyone relate, or stop them ending up....

    For anyone: adult, teen, or child, who just needs some comfort.

    If you're reading this and you have ADHD, I'm sorry for the long speech. I always skip around if I have a lengthy read ahead of me, and you all probably aren't much different. I tried to space it out a bit, and reading it myself, the space helped a little bit. :D I was diagnosed with severe ADHD at 5 years old. My mother always believed it was some type of "stigma" and wouldn't tell any of my teachers when I was a kid. She just recognized it once every three months, when....
  • ADHD

    I've had ADHD for a while. Since I was in grade school. I managed it for a while with a script, but i'm almost 24 and I still have problems with it. I'm looking for any advice anyone has on how to manage it, also if anyone has ever taken Straterra, which is what my doctor prescribed me for it.

    Anyone else out there made groggy by amphetamines?

    When I was first diagnosed with ADHD the psychiatrist tried me on Ritalin, Concerta, Adderall, and Welbutrin. All the amphetamine types of medications made me really groggy. The Welbutrin did nothing but leave me with permanent tinnitus. I would interested in hearing from other ADHDers who can't take the amphetamine type drugs because they put them to sleep. Have you found anything that does work?

    Concerta tolerance and Adderall

    I’m a 42 years of age female and have been on Concerta ER 72mgs, where I take two of the 36mgs twice daily and also the 10mg IR once daily for the last four to five years now . It was like a miracle for me being so well focused and bursting with energy but not the jittery kind, up until the last year and a half or so ago. It still seems to work almost the same, just not great like it had been. It feels like maybe my body has built up a tolerance but just a little because I’ve been running out almost....

    Why I stopped taking Adderall

    A couple of years back I went to the doctor for a check up with more anxiety than normal. When my doctor came in he looked at me with concerning eyes and started to ask me questions. These questions were him probing me and giving me a test for ADD. To make sure he was correct he also had me take an online test where he would read the question and I would answer. I was 21 at the time and it was the first time I was diagnosed with ADD. The medication that was prescribed to me causes a lot more damage....
