  • Hey, so i have been on strattera and this is my third week on it (second week on 80mg). It first started with unusual side effects, like light headedness, but was bearable. Just last week is when the side effects wore off, and i am feeling great now. I am able to focus a lot easier and sustain focus a lot longer than i did prior from taking strattera.  In the past couple of days, though, i have...

    Any adults with ADHD on here?

    I was recently diagnosed with ADHD as a 35 year old. I am struggling with insurance to pay for meds since I wasn't diagnosed when I was a kid - crazy right? I must have had it all along. I can't finish projects, I start WAY too many projects at once and get lured into starting another before I finish. I'm also struggling with severe depression and anxiety, which I know doesn't help. Just...

    Help Advice please

    I’m needing a little advice. My son is 9 and was diagnosed with ADHD combined type with severe impulsivity ODD and mood disorder at 4 years old.

  • Hi, my 7 year old son was recently diagnosed with ADHD. He was in a local and very traditional indian school that just couldn't cope with him so I had to take him out and start homeschooling him. I know it was the right decision as he's doing much better with his work but I'm finding it a real struggle having him around the house so much. My maid takes him out to various classes three times a...

    I think I may have adult ADD

    Two years ago my psychiatrist asked me if I had any kind of learning disability do to my poor performance in highschool (I graduated in 2013) to which I responded "no." I had never been tested for anything and teachers assumed if they just tutored me more, I'd do better. It's 2016 and I'm starting to realize (thanks to a super demanding job) that I literally cannot focus for more than five...

    ADHD in almost 5 year old.

    I have a 4 year old, that was adopted at birth. His biological Mom used drugs, therefore he was considered a drug exposed baby. There was nothing out of the ordinary happening until he was almost 4, and now I can't even describe the amount of chaos in my home. He's very intelligent, but he's aggressive with other children, to the point of being a bully. He can be very selfish, and will defy...
