220090 tn?1379167187 scattered thinking, restlestness, memory problems, inattention to details, lack of ability to finish tasks without jumping into other things, total lack of focus....and just about all the other symptoms of ADD...or something eerily similar. Does "aging" cause ADD??? Really??? Not that I have ever read anywhere. Funny how a good number of us just 'coincidentally' seem to develop a boatload of nasty problems right after finishing tx.
Avatar n tn I have suffered from ADD symptoms as a result of my drug and alcohol use a decade ago. I have been on many ADD and anti depressant meds but all to no avail except with Wellbutrin XR and somewhat with Concerta. The Wellbutrin worked amazingly well a long time ago but stopped shortly after I took a small sip of hard liquor. My doctors are perplexed by this but that is the only explanation I can come up with.

Avatar f tn t even feel like going out with my friends anymore, because I feel very uncomfortable, and my anxiety and nerves get the best of me and I end up leaving somewhere with my friends with a stomachache. Anyone had luck finding one that doesn't seem to effect your weight as much? I'm not sure if I have the anxiety, and stomach problems due to the ADD. Has it been untreated so long that I have the other repercussions?

Avatar m tn Ever since I was little I've always had to have my feet or hands moving at all times(still do). I'm always distracted by every little thing and I can't never focus on hardly anything. And I always blurt out random things or speak when I'm always hyper-ish.
Avatar f tn now with that said i have been trying to get treatment for my add and feel like my treatment options are based around my past addiction. i was diagnosed with add in highschool and put on vyvanse for about a year (my parents thought i was too young to be taking stimulants so they took me off it). it worked amazingly with focus and keeping my racing thoughts organized.
Avatar m tn ve had symptoms and took 1 gram of ZITHROMAX in one serving, then 250 mg 12 hrs later and another 250mg 12 hrs after that. I started to notice this tesitcular pain, but hadn't noticed it with my first onset of symptoms (penile discharge--mild). So my question would be this: Can symptoms show up gradually ie. penile disharge for a week, then testicual pain, then abnominal pain etcetera? Or do you think this may be related to my weight lifting?

Avatar f tn Hi I just had a phone call from the doctor saying there is an opening to go on treatment next week, how bad can the symptoms get and are they hard to control. There are a lot of things I do need to do everyday as I am the only one with a license in the family I do all the driving, I am also studying, and I have a 3 mon old daughter to look after. What are some ways of coping.

Avatar m tn I have battled depression since I was a teen and recently was told I have adult add. I find myself not really wanting to ever go any where or do anything and I am very irritable.

I find myself constantly wondering what if this happens what if that happens. I seem to worry about everything actually. Money, bills, house work I need to get done.
Avatar f tn Later, after high school I went to another psychiatrist who diagnosed me with ADD and put me on different drugs such as concerta, basically ritlan.
