Rob,

Adult ADD (less the H) generally responds well to a relatively high dose of amphetamine based medication - Adderall, Dexedrine and Vyvanse. Adderall is a mixture of racemic amphetamines (equal amounts of right and left handed molecules). Vyvanse is a dex-amphetamine prodrug. While the chemistry is way over my head, the important thing to know is that our CNS responds differently to each of the medications. You may need a few trials to determine the one best for you.

In your case, I think it probably that medication alone my just turn the trick for you. IMO you have developed the coping skills. You may need only bring the biology into line.

Of course, some coaching is always helpful.

Take "Baby steps." (See the movie "What about Bob"). You'll laugh yourself silly. Good medicine in itself.

First step, get an appointment with child's psychiatrist. Let the pdoc do his/her job - give you step-by-step the medical counsel to follow.

Bob
