Avatar f tn Hello, Sort of looking at starting a bit of a discussion here rather than posting a question. I recently went to my doctor for a routine ailment and he questioned whether I had ever been assessed for ADHD given some traits he noticed during our many consultations over the years.

13246092 tn?1429152825 You feel weird when off V because you then are feeling what ADHD is like. You have very accurately described many of the symptoms of adult ADHD. So yes, you should feel differently when off the medication. If not, the med would not be working. You said, "I am not comfortable having this external source of personal power being the difference between a good day and a bad day but I don't know what to do.
