Avatar f tn Has any one else noticed the boy or girl quiz add with the two babies? The way it is set up the little boy looks like he is holding the girls shirt and raring back to punch her.
Avatar f tn I have been told by several people that I have Adult ADD. I drink a lot of beer. If I do not drink I am bouncing off the walls. When I clean, I cannot finish one project before being distracted by another and moving on and on and on. My mind is constantly running on high. I am tired of drinking but feel crazy hyper without it. I am 51. I am hoping I can learn more about the onset of Adult ADD or could I possibly have had this for many years without my knowledge??
490665 tn?1210334012 was wondering if adult add goes un detected for quite a while, its just i suffer with anxiety and have been told its a side effect of add or adhd, i have always been quite hyperactive as a person and as a young person was very unruly and troublesom and did not quite understand why i was like that and why i was doin things wrong, i always have compulsions to get in trouble and still do, i also suffer with a bad temper but i dont mean to have these outbursts they just happen!!
Avatar n tn My husband (54years) has adult ADD. He is seeing a psychiatrist, who prescribes Concerta. He's been on it for about 6 months - says that, while it hasn't been a magic bullet or anything, that he feels more focused with it. This is the problem: I find him increasingly difficult to live, due to his list of symptoms. Sometimes, they seem to be getting worse. I guess I feel that there are other things he could be doing to manage this illness. But he never follows through on anything.
1858622 tn?1319813203 I do recommend some on line sites which have a lot of useful information since they are aimed at adults by adults with ADD. The two sites aimed at the adult ADD sufferer that you might want to check out are totallyadd.com and http://jeffsaddmind.com/for-first-time-visitors. Both sites are done by people with ADD. totallyadd was actually a PBS special and consequently is a series of short videos. Quite entertaining and useful. Jeffs add mind really reflects him.
Avatar n tn there is such a thing as "adult add" go ahead and research it and see if you fall under that catagory. i know you are looking for answers/a reason for your feelings and such. they even have checklists, a quiz if you will to see if you may have add. if it looks as if you do, print out the sheet and show your dr. you can certainly get on some meds to help.
Avatar n tn did a bit of reading about Adult ADD. Very interesting how close it matches my moods and feelings. Tried a few things with organisation etc and wow! what a huge difference. Rather than just being pissed of about mess and clutter and feeling crap...i actually did something about it and its made a huge difference. Perhaps its a trigger for the depression.
1789235 tn?1315156881 When I was younger I was diagnosed with both ADD/ADHD I was on Ritalin, (chewables) i remember spitting them out.. but I was wondering if it is possible to still have ADD as an adult.. I find myself not paying attention at times, starting one task then moving to another always having one or more tasks not finished.. If so what can be done to help me with this and can I be re-diagnosed?.. I am not sure if this makes any sense at all..
Avatar f tn What you need to do is to first find out more about AD/HD. Two sites aimed at the adult ADD sufferer that you might want to check out are totallyadd.com and http://jeffsaddmind.com/for-first-time-visitors. Both sites are done by people with ADD. totallyadd was actually a PBS special and consequently is a series of short videos. Quite entertaining and useful. Jeffs add mind really reflects him. Has much more adult interaction. Both are worth checking out.

Avatar n tn In the past, I have taken Adderall for my ADD. I recently moved to Birmingham, AL. and I'm not sure of the best way to find a physician who treats Adult ADD. My job involves a lot of organizational skills and I have to be careful not to make mistakes because the line of work I am in, the company could get sued if I miss something important. If any one could suggest a physician, I would be very grateful.
Avatar m tn I am an adult with this ADD. It really is difficult. I tried Stratterra, but that is too much for my system. Anyone found any special helpful cures?
Avatar f tn Our Dr says he is the poster child for Adult ADD/ADHD. He has also been diagnosed with a leaking Mitral valve prolapse. And was placed on Pinodol. He is also on Suboxone for loratab addiction. He has been put on adderall then taken off due to it not helping him. Was put on Vyvanse and was having severe side effects from that. So he was placed on the same dosage of Adderall that he was on previously. 20 mg 2 times a day, and was also put on Zoloft.
