Common Questions and Answers about Adult add symptoms

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.
Avatar n tn if she is experiencing symptoms of any sort of disability, included ADD... and those symptoms are getting in the way of her functioning ability (sometimes theses things don't get in the way of people functioning ability)... then it might be good if she had support and help. A visit to her family doctor might be a place to start. Or, a visit to a counselor or psychologist. If she was still IN school...
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..
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 f tn You can go to your family doctor to ask about these symptoms and to inquire if you might have adult ADD. I went to my family doctor to get diagnosed.
Avatar n tn I am very patient and organized when it comes to school work, but all other aspects go exactly with ADD symptoms. I don't suffer from hyperactivity, I go from ups and downs very easily, I can get easily upset. But what frustrates me the most is that since I get good grades, no one believes I could. They say it's perfectly normal, that I'm just being stupid over nothing.
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 My adult son is on D-Amphetamine for ADD symptoms (focusing). He has been on Prozac for several months for depression but has now been switched to Zoloft. Are these classes of drugs compatible? Should he consider another class of drug for his depressive symptoms?
Avatar f tn As for differences between bipolar and adult ADD - google has information, personally I believe adult ADD to be up their with childhood *** as about most over diagnosed thing around and do not remotely believe its as prevalent as people say - I have met plenty of adults who claim to be ADD and not one of them truly fits the symptoms and the behaviours but hey they get ritalin and it works so they must be ADD right? * Ritalin works on non ADD and ADD people in most cases...

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.
