... ed, so he does not want to try any regular ADHD medicines. He wants me to get counseling to see if I'm depressed before he tries to treat the ADHD any more.

... My own experience with Strattera was extreme nausea coupled with somnolence so bad I couldn't trust myself to drive. I have only ever heard of one case of Strattera having any positive effects, I think the stuff is junk. ... (2 replies)
... female, and my pdoc prescribed me 40mg Strattera 4 days ago, to take one at bedtime. ... (3 replies)
... Thank you all for your replies and info. It is extremely encouraging to me to get positive feedback, input and ideas from people who know. I think my GP is very cautious, but truly interested in doing the best treatment for me. So, even though not having a quick solution is frustrating, I know it's best to be patient and follow his recommendations. Now if only the... (6 replies)
... Jane's suggested treatment plan is "right on" and I agree wholeheartedly with the order of treatment that she's recommended. Your first step is to get your thyroid levels corrected. It isn't uncommon for antidepressants to be ineffective when thyroid hormones are off. Hypothyroidism can also cause ADD symptoms. ... (6 replies)
... 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. ... (6 replies)

... It's funny, but she's in great health despite this in her later 70's....so I guess she didn't need those ADs, Lipitor, water diretics, thyroid meds, etc. etc. that she had been prescribed over time. Her latest checkup was perfect. ... (2 replies)
... Whew, that's good. My nephew took Adderall and it caused mood swings ( sort of like bi-polar), aggression, crying for no reason and some sleep problems.....of course, it "worked" for his schooling but he was turning into another kid. Then they tried Strattera; seemed to be so much better than the stimulant at first, but then he had some extreme fatigue that wouldn't let... (10 replies)
... Over the years, I have been on Strattera and Adderall for brief periods of time. Also tried Ritalin. The problem is that these medications made me very anxious, and still didn't help the problem. ... (1 replies)
... I will update after I take him to the doctor. I do think I am going to take him off of everything except asthma meds for now. One more thing, his father has thyroid disease.... I think I may request a thyroid test for him. I know that can affect mood also. ... (27 replies)
... Well, yes, interpreting message boards is not always easy. I mentioned medications and fibro together since there have been some links to AD's causing fibro and other things like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. AD's also have an adverse effect to the sleep pattern, but so do alot of things like benzos, alcohol, stimulants, etc. If you had pre-existing sleep issues, meds sometimes... (17 replies)
... Well Im 31 and the drug use was in my early 20's. I have had all the tests I have had add all my life but was just told about it 2 months ago. My dr is very well informed of my life and past. I stopped drugs years ago because I just was done with them and thats just the way I am . I have researched the innatentive type ADD and my symptoms are very common to it I just need... (12 replies)
... I only say that because some of the ritalin type meds may be the wrong thing for you. Something nonstimulant based, like strattera maybe a better choice. The fatigue and all seem like it could show another problem and not just ADD also. Have you been checked out for that? ... (12 replies)
Help!!! - Adhd?
Dec 17, 2003
... Well, your story is my story....good luck with the meds. I'm still working my way towards the meds, but have to regulate my long ignored (by the doctors) thyroid issues. My self-esteem lies on the floor now, at 53, and that is hard to recover, and the circus in my head refuses to be stilled. I also have a fairly good IQ, 130. Little good that did me. I did find that... (11 replies)
