... Hi All - I am new to these boards. Nice to meet all of you! So heres my story - I have long suspected I may have ADHD - I am 30 now - and many of my symptoms are characterisitics of Adult ADHD - less hyper - more impulsive - not necessarily a thrill seaker, but definitly hard to concentrate or remember simple things. This began to affect my ability to function at work and... (6 replies)
... I am 19 years old. My BF is 20. We just had a son on October 28th. My BF was diagnosed with ADHD when he was a child. A few years after being on medication he stopped taking it, well before he even got into high school. His parents didnt believe he really had ADHD. They thought he used ADHD as an excuse when he got into trouble. I believe he has ADHD. He has all the... (2 replies)
... I had the same results that you had when I initially began taking Adderall. I started with 20 mg (10mg in the morning and 10mg around noon). This worked great for the first few days, just like you, and then it seemed to get worse. My doctor increased my dosage to 30 mg (now 20mg in the am and 10 mg around noon) and I feel 1000% better. You might want to discuss dosages... (6 replies)

... I'm a 33yo male with inattentive type ADD. I take adderall 20mg. I have noticed that it makes me a little more fidgety, mostly things like foot tapping while sitting still or pacing around while waiting for the train if I don't have something to read. I have found that it greatly helps my concentration and motivation, however, if I haven't gotten enough sleep or exercise,... (6 replies)
... It's not funny but I did have to chuckle a bit because you sound just like me getting ready for work! By the time I leave the bathroom looks like a tornado hit it if I haven't figured out calmly the night before what I'm going to wear. This morning? I locked myself out of the house. Yup. Brilliant.

... dado'3, The part of your story that you told is part of my story. Sylvia, yours too. *sigh* Anyhoo, my experience with Adderall was the same as dado's (along with my experiences with 4 other medications for 2 other disorders). Reading Sylvia's response I do recall the doc cutting back on the Adderall when I reacted like dado. It's been about 8 months now, and, as... (6 replies)
... Wow index, what a great P.S. that was, a great way to explain it. I would tend to agree that Adderall is not the drug for you, or probably any stimulant. But on the other hand, you said it did work for you the first few days, and that you were able to achieve the "focus" that the drug is designed for. Could it be that these past few days are a time when you have been bored or... (6 replies)
... Hi Dadofthree, nice to meet you, too! Yes, there is a theory that the effect stimulants have on you indicate whether or not you have ADD. It's hotly debated at this point, however. What is more important is the effect Adderall has had on you. It has made you more fidgetty and more scatter-brained. Definitely not the desired effect. Whatever the cause, I'd have to say...

... was on dexedrine which is like the same thing I believe. He also became paranoid , checking windows and doors over and over again. Up until 4 am and he was very figidy and speedy.. IT did however help him with concentrating although he is bipolar also and he was manic for a week after only two doses of dexedrine. ... (4 replies)
