... Jodi, I'm both OCD (Obsessive Compulsive), which it sounds like your husband may also be, and I was also recently diagnosed with ADD (which answered so many questions about behavior I was unable to change despite valiant efforts). Lower doses of medication were better for me than higher doses, because increasing the Strattera for more focus was channeled into my long-ingrained... (7 replies)

... My son is being tested for ADHD, and it seems the more we learn about ADD, the more I see from online, and the books my husband brings home, it seems that he does have it. Not much of the hyper aspect of it, but everything else...concentration especially. What I'm wondering is if anyone noticed a major change in thier children after being on medication for ADD. I think... (9 replies)
... I've tried most all of the ADD meds -- I'm in my 50s -- and have found nothing that works better for me than plain ole Dex tablets. I take 10 mg if I really need to focus, get organized, start and complete a project; if I simply need to focus enough to get off the couch or take out the trash, I take 5 mg. I've found that any extended release meds work horribly for me. (9 replies)
... Hi Cynthialee, Adderrall is sort of an odd med. In most cases when someone with ADD/ADHD takes too high a dose of this med, they will get "zombified" instaed of "jacked-up".

... the afternoon. After this we tried Strattera which was a disaster. I thought we would have to have him hospitallized to regulate his mood swings. We then went to Aderall XR which again we have had to keep raising. He was up to 25 mg am and 10mg pm. This drug did affect his mood negatively and his sleep. ... (8 replies)
... Robyn - thanks for the encouragement! Actually I tried Aderall for a week and it gave me SPLITTING, dehabilitating headaches (with very little positive effect). My psych switched me to Lexapro (mild antidepressant) which seems to have almost no effect on me whatsoever. I might look into trying Ritalin or Strattera next, although I hate this feeling of guinea-pig! We'll... (17 replies)
... Had been on Aderall XR. Moody on it. ... (16 replies)
... Energy only. No focus, no grump. The energy lasted all day. If I could combine the positive effect of Aderall with the consistency of Concerta, I'd be homefree. Next, Straterra. ... (13 replies)
... WOW, you and I almost the same situation. Aderall is based on a high fat diet. I learned that from researching the net. Make sure you eat well while taking it or it will make you on edge and jiddery. ... (8 replies)
