Adderall Abuse

... Goody, All I can add is that I think you and your husband did a brave and great thing for your daughter. I think Bob's comments about having to go without the drugs, in order to determine if she has ADD, is right on the mark. My daughter admitted to using alcohol and pot but not to a large degree. The psychologist's answer to that was to put her on Strattera, not... (16 replies)

... Hi, I'm new to this board (this is my first post, actually). I was diagnosed 12 years ago as a result of an audiology test, but my doctor at the time was reluctant to prescribe stimulants (which were then the only available pharmaceutical intervention). He was concerned because I had a history of amphetamine abuse in late teens/early 20's. I recently asked my primary care... (11 replies)

I think that effect is believable since Strattera is similiar to the antidepressant Wellbutrin (which also occasionally prescribed for ADD, by the way). The other stimulants are... (13 replies)
... at least not for ADHD symptoms. Wellbutrin is a stimulating antidepressant in the same class as Strattera but without most of Strattera's nastiness. So it just may do the job. ... (11 replies)
