dzr,

Brain injury can cause a disorder that is identical to ADHD. One expert, Daniel Amen MD, calls it ADHD. Most others say it is like ADHD. It's the old duck thing. Walks, looks, quakes like a duck. What is it?

Adderall and Ritalin can induce depression and can cause stomach upset. Both side effects can [B]sometimes[/B] be managed by low dose extended release formulations such as Concerta. Another possibility is a stimulating antidepressant such as Welbutrin instead of the stimulants or along with a much lower dose of stimulants.

Your best bet is to learn to manage without meds ... if that is possible. A good psychologist with ADHD therapy experience may be able to help you find effective work-arounds. Take a look at some of the bio-feedback therapies out there. You may be able to teach an undamaged part of your brain to take up the slack.
