Hello Everybody,

My name is Rod, I am 27 years old, I came from my homeland Cuba 8 years ago, and I just been diagnosed with ADHD.

Ever since I was a kid I had problems concentrating, it got to the point that I have to be seated in front of the class so I could stay focus. I have never been a very good student because of this issue with focusing. I am not dumb, I consider myself intelligent, I even tested my IQ a couple of months ago, and it came up 122 which according to the chart is Gifted. I have so many goals in my life, and things that I have wanted to change, but I havenít accomplished anything to the point that I have become an A class bullshitter, and I have a black belt in procrastination. The reality is that all those things that I want to change in my life I really want to do them in my heart but when I try to do them I just donít, and the worst thing is that I feel that my life is just fading away, the years have passed, and I havenít done anything about it, and I am not getting any younger.

Ok back to the present. Last month I decided so go see a specialist because a lot of people have been saying that I might have ADHD, I taught about it and I realized that many people cannot be wrong so I did it. The specialist did a psychological test, and it came out that people where right I had ADHD. I wasnít surprise because I research about it, and I saw the pattern. Three days ago I went to see the doctor, and he prescribed me Adderall IR 20 mg (generic brand) . I started using it two days ago in the morning , and nothing have happened, only I have slow down a little bit ,and the rest is mostly bad side effect like dry mouth, mild headaches, trouble sleeping, and loss of appetite. Due to this disappointing result I have been freaking out since day 1 researching every page about it, and I havenít got a straight answer. I really want to get my life on track, and I was hoping this could help. Please help.

Best regards,
