Avatar f tn I have been doing alot of research on ADHD lately as I think my daughter probably has it. While I was searching, I kept coming across sites about adult ADHD and I'm starting to think I have it as well.
Avatar f tn People with ADHD often pick exciting jobs that involve moving around and paying attention for short periods of time--things like being a paramedic or chef for example. It is also part of adult ADHD to be an underachiever, but again this does not have to last forever. Sometimes living at home can prolong the problems. You know your parents are acting as a safety net, and this can make you stagnate.

1287128 tn?1331134538 My thoughts are that stim meds affect people with ADHD differently than people who do not have ADHD. Many times it actually will calm them down. And since anxiety is a co-disorder with ADHD - if your ADHD improves, then your anxiety might reduce (and the pounding heart). I know I have cut down on my coffee intake (lots more tea- love Yogi Bedtime tea at night), since my heart problems.
1546912 tn?1293809481 A fruitless search for an Adult-specific ADHD forum and support community left me frustrated and cranky. Combing through general ADHD forums is -- ironically -- the worst thing for an ADHD adult who is eager to find success strategies. When I found the Mr. Tuckman's quote, I gave up the hunt and decided to put my energy into creating this forum. Please participate, enjoy, and contribute to what will be a God-send for other adults.

Avatar n tn Congratulations on trying to do something about what is going on with you. Well, the first thing you probably need is to get a real good idea of what ADHD or ADD is. The link on this site is pretty good. http://www.medhelp.org/medical-information/show/2157/Attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder-ADHD Another good site is - http://www.healing-arts.org/children/ADHD/ Meds might well help you - or not. There really is only one way to find out.
Avatar n tn Yes, all of those can easily come along with ADHD and very often do. ADHD is known to have co-existing disorders and bi-polar and depression are two of the foresmost ones. Addiction is commonly experienced by those with ADHD because we tend to self-medicate in order to stimulate the area of our brain that is deficient. This is why stimulant medication tends to work so well usually.
Avatar m tn Ritalin for ADHD treatment in adults has not been adequately studied, meaning that no large studies have been conducted on the benefits and risks of using it to treat adult ADHD. However, healthcare providers may prescribe Ritalin for adult ADHD in certain situations. This is considered an "off-label" of the drug. Off-label is when a prescription medicine is used to treat a disease or condition (or in an age group) for which the drug has not been approved by the U.S.

Avatar m tn //www.medhelp.org/posts/ADD---ADHD/Now-on-Adderall--what-to-expect/show/1467132 The symptoms of ADHD are very standard and can be found in many places on the web. Identifying ADD is much more difficult. You will find a very good site for adults at this location - http://jeffsaddmind.com/for-first-time-visitors - which covers both aspects of AD. Hope this helps. Best wishes.
Avatar m tn Much to my dismay, my doctor seems to think I'm a classic textbook case of an adult with heretofore undiagnosed ADHD. Like most people, I find that my mood is wonderful when I'm eating right and exercising regularly - can an adult combat ADHD with exercise and diet WITHOUT using medications? I'm not a fan of taking pills - especially ones that are meant to regulate mood/depression.
Avatar f tn As an adult that has been lining with ADHD through my youth, and now have varying symtoms in my late 20's, and a very low paying service job with a high IQ and skills in drafting and CAD applications - my life still seems to be on hold - I have little to no motivation to keep me going towards goals of Post College BS/MS work in engineering and aerospace - I have always wanted to design and build the first Mars/Moon colony buildings . . .
