... due to ADHD, since I seem to be a textbook case since like age 2 and even have had some of my psych professors actually ask me or mention to me if I have it. My GP agreed my traits seem to indicate ADHD and said to try Strattera, since at age 40 and never diagnosed, I never took any medicine for it before. ... (6 replies)
... my son who was 14 at the time when he went on to strattera, i was told it had hardly any side affects, i can't remember what dose he was put onto, i know different people different medication, but after a couple of months on this medication, i thought my son was going mad, it made his ADHD symptons worse than ever, he ripped his room apart, his bedroom door was in squares of...

... I think my GP is very cautious, but truly interested in doing the best treatment for me. ... (6 replies)

... As far as Strattera goes, I have to admit it has helped some, for me it was among my worse nightmares. ... (6 replies)
... ritalin and concerta made her heart race and two years ago we tried strattera but it made her stomach hurt and she felt groggy so we quit. ... (9 replies)
... I am so happy for you. It did not go as well for me when I approached my GP about the possibility of ADHD. It took me several months to go through the bozos including one of "shrink" types before I found psychiatrist that helped me. ... (3 replies)
... Arron, If you had a brain tumor, would it not be "all in your head?" Would you trust your medical care to your JO GP? Would you not see a specialist? BUT, AD/HD is not as serious. Fact is, AD/HD is a "fake disorder." BULL SHOOT. We both know how serious AD/HD is. Dude, you gotta see a specialist. Bob (13 replies)
... I also agree with Thunor's musings about the use of stimulants in depression. I assume the doctor who thinks the two are incompatible is a GP and a not a psychiatrist because it simply isn't true. ... (6 replies)
... Thank you for your reply, it is really helpful to get encouragement and some practical advice too. After my long history of various medicines not working like they're supposed to, I have doubt that the "regular" ADHD meds will work on me either. I'm on thyroid med. to help that, but I'm sure you're right about getting some coaching on coping with the ADHD. I got a referral... (6 replies)
... the Psychiatrist decided after 10 minutes that I was bipolar and slapped me on Topamax. After a hellish month on that stuff, I fired him and started going to a GP who gives me what I tell him to. ... (5 replies)
... We then discussed medications, whether I would be interested in trying one and the differences between them. We settled on Strattera and now 2 days later I have just taken my first 40mg dose which I am to follow for a week and then up it to 80mg. ... (1 replies)
... He aways did have ADHD, but not badly, and wasn't DX'd until a few years ago, when the GP prescribed dexedrine. It was hell getting him diagnosed too, because he insists there's nothing wrong and in the past, has refused to see a doctor. ... (29 replies)
... to someone who struggles with both ADD and hormones. I do not know anyone else who is in the same boat so it's difficult to explain my frustrations. I've been on Strattera in the past but I'm unable to take anything while nursing or pregnant. ... (4 replies)
... Thunor, glad you got the help you wanted, though sorry it took so long. As for the schizophrenia, just an inkling of a theory. But, I remember when taking Adderall for a short period of time, I was okay on a little dose than when I increased to 30mg a day I felt extreme anxiety/paranoia. But, having Social Anxiety and a natural hypersensitivity might be too blame. Though... (17 replies)
... I wasn't sure how to weigh in on this one when I first saw it. Once again, it seems that Bob and Mari showed the way. One day, a few months after my diagnosis, my father asked me why I couldn't just accept the fact that I'm lazy, like he is. Like most of the conversations between me and my dad, this one didn't end well. Mom tried her best to be supportive, but wasn't... (17 replies)
... "The only thing that I was ever told about taking the meds, is that you take them with a full glass of water, this helps the absorbtion process." I did not know this was related to asorption, but I do drink a lot of water anyway :) For adults to be prescribed stimulants here in the UK, a consultant has to advise the GP on medication, and many GPs still refuse to...
