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.
Avatar f tn I am a 26 year old mother. My sister is a general manager for a great company. She put a word in for me to get a manager's position at her store. My problem is the drug test. I will have adderall in my system. I have a prescription for it, so I am not worried about that aspect but I have never told my family that I was diagnosed years ago. If I take 15mg daily, how long will it take before it is out of my system completely?

Avatar n tn A diagnosis for adult ADD/ADHD must show that the symptoms started in childhood. For various reason many people with ADD/ADHD reach adulthood without an ADD diagnosis. I was diagnosed after two of my children were. I was in college as a psychology major at the time and did most of my research papers on it because I was worried about what that meant for them. Most research and information seems to be geared toward children but it is being recognized more and more in adults.
Avatar n tn Hi, thanks for taking my question, I was diagnosed with ADHD as a child, was on ritalin for about 6 years, my brother took me off of it when I was 14 when he gained custody of me, I guess my question is, is it possible that I still have it? I feel keyed up most of the time, alot of my problems are anxiety type symptoms such as palpitations, heart doesn't race, it just has those *skipped beats* when I get over excited.

Avatar m tn http://************.com/news/2013/10/08/adult-adhd-remains-undertreated/60473.html A new European study finds that only a small proportion of adults ever receive a proper ADHD diagnosis and treatment, despite the fact that up to two-thirds of children with this disorder continue to have it into adulthood. Although the estimated incidence of ADHD is approximately 3-4 percent, the diagnostic prevalence is below 0.5 percent. That's a huge difference. Dr.
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.

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.
Avatar m tn I have not ever been tested and not aware of a real test to confirm ADHD. All I did was fill out a questionnare and was told that I scored higher than most for the diagnoses of ADHD.
342425 tn?1241379464 A kid that age on sugar will be diagnosed with add/adhd 99.9% of the time. For an adult to be diagnosed, they should at least take that 700someodd question psych test. I spent 2 weeks in hospitals just to find out I had adhd, but I paid 10k out-of-pocket just to find out because I knew I had some kind of "anxiety" problem.
Avatar f tn i was wondering if anyone here diagnosed with adult adhd could share with me a few things please in regards to focusing and staying focused whether it's reading or driving television any activity does medication help you stay focused? and does the ability to not be able to focus extend to everything regardless the level of interest you hold in it?

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.
