Oh, for your meds question, several meds can be presecibed. Below are some of the ones I'm familiar with. Each person responds differently to the different meds so if one doesn't work, try another (your not doping, your trying to find what works for you to make life a little better. It's a noble thing).

If you are diagnosed and are prescribed meds, find someone (or us here on the board even) that can tell you what to expect. It wasn't a miracle pill and my expectations were set way to high to the point it wasn't "what I wanted". Now I realize that even though I have to capability, while on the meds, to organize, doesn't necessarily mean I know how to organize. I didn't realize at first that my trips from my cube, down the hall, up the stairs, through the break room to the restrooms... were actually successful. I didn't know to look at things like that.

Here are the one's I'm familiar with:

Adderall - stimulant that comes in extended release called XR or a short acting version (what I take)
Concerta - extended release stimulant
Straterra - non-stimulant
Ritalin - stimulant
Datrana - The patch (what I'm hoping for!!!:blob_fire I go the 28th this month)
