1998316 tn?1328972756 What are the symptoms of adult ADD? Would i have had to have it as a child? I remember as early as 6th grade i had trouble remembering things, poor memory and concentration, depression, allergies (which i didn't realize i had). Now, i am taking antidepressants and Klonopin. I have been on antidepressants since a young adult and on Klonopin for a couple of years. I was on Xanax before that.
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..
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.
1253584 tn?1332877954 i was told by my counselor that i have adult setting up an appt with my dr and was wondering what treatments are out there to help with ADD..?
Avatar n tn It is important to consider if you had the memory problems earlier, or they have appeared now. Adult ADD does not appear suddenly. Your anxiety seems to be pverwhelming. You seem to think of the consequence much earlier than the action itself. Please correct me if I am wrong. When you misplace words, it doesn't mean you have a memory problem. At the same time, I am not denying that you have a memory problem.
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 and 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 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.
Avatar n tn Not that it is a bad thing but it caused me problems when I really needed to concentrate. As an adult, I went to my dr. and they said I probably had ADD-not ADHD. I started medication and I am so much better. Who knew. Goodluck! It can be very frusterating.
Avatar m tn doing some research on Adderall...3rd day on it, helps out, but severe headaches, constipation and stomach upset.
Avatar n tn Although I am an adult, I am hypothyroid and I take Adderall for ADD. It it very helpful to me. I know that when I don't take the Adderall, I have a very hard time focusing, completing tasks, memory problems. I don't think I have heard of seizure problems with hypothyroidism. In my opinion, it is worth a try to help him. It sounds like he is very unhappy as he is and he shouldn't have to go through childhood that way.
Avatar n tn com where I took 2 detailed online tests(used incidentally by many doctors at clinics I realized later) and they came back highly probable being Inattentive ADD. What… I hadn’t heard of that one. Symptoms were right on with my situations. Wow.
Avatar f tn t notice it when I try to proof read my writing. I can spell even very simple words. I am vey disorganized and have been diagnosed with adult ADD.
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...
