Thanks for the advice. I did have some problems in high school and college w/ pot and psychedelics, and I now wonder if I liked them so much because they had (for me) some speedy features. It wasn't like I was a TOTAL acid or pot head, but I would use when I knew I shouldn't, and had trouble stopping even when the drugs began giving me panic attacks. I have read "Driven to Distraction," and the chapter on "ADD with Substance Abuse" is excellent. I wonder if I had been self-medicating my ADD.

I've heard about Strattera, and have also heard that Metadate is good for ADHD w/o being a stimulant - or too much of a stimulant. I'll ask my pdoc about these.

It's funny - it's like I have an angel on one shoulder saying "ask about Metadate. It will be better for you," and a devil on the other saying, "stick with the Adderall. It won't hurt you, and it makes you feel good. It makes everything easy...."

I will talk to my doc about Metadate, though. Thanks again!
