Hey, The meds you take are not contradictory to each other unless you take the adderall and xanax at the same time... In theory, adderall with xanax would likely keep you up(adderall- a mixture of amphetamine salts, is a stimulant..) but in a bit of a loopy mood (xanax,- a benzodiazapine, is a "downer"). I do not know of adhd chat rooms but if you need advice, while I am NOT a doctor, I have been through years of adhd medical solutions and if you have questions on addition stuff, you can message me through my profile.
Hopefully you will find a helpful answer to your questions :-) Be well!
Aside from the fact I can't keep a checkbook to save my life, and the least little thing will distract me in a heartbeat. In all honesty I don't get why they say someone has adult ADHD. When a person has juvenile diabetes (type 1 diabetes) it's called that all their lives, the name doesn't change when they become and adult. I did the classic check-the-box quiz and I scored quite high.
But after 20 years a couple years ago I decided to go back to school and I've always SUCKED at math... My husband did the same quiz to see what his perception of my habits were and it was higher. I'm not the hyperactive, talkative, can't sit in one... So for the last day or two I've really been in a flustered state.
I tried different MEDs until the clear best choice was Concerta.
I also have borderline bi-polar/mood disorder so I take a very small dose of Lamictal here and there...
once in operating theater, d phone ring, in split second I turn toward d saw her staring at me.. and up until now I thought I was managing it pretty well. and I wonder what the first medication they put me on will be.
For example, "Diagnosed cases of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder increased almost 4 percent every year from 2000 to 2010 making it the number one mental health concern in children." also understands that children are not the only ones who have ADHD or ADD - it has also become a phenomenon for adults as well.
For example, ADHD "...affects an estimated 4.1 percent of adults, ages 18-44, in a given year." It seems common sense that there would be an adult population with ADHD or ADD; after all, these children who have been diagnosed do grow up.
There are many treatments for the symptoms of ADHD and ADD, such as medications like Ritalin, however, these treatments do not support the parent caring for the child with this type of disorder, or even the spouse who is supporting their loved one with one of these disorders.
is here to offer parents, and those either living with ADHD or ADD, or those who love someone who has it, the support you deserve.
