I have adult ADHD (mostly ADD, per my psychologist) and after trying various things that don't involve prescription pills, I think I'm ready to cave in and try one, because I can't seem to get my life and brain in order! 🙁
I already have problems with anxiety and insomnia, and I'm easily hyped up by stimulants like caffeine, albuterol or even chai tea, so I feel strongly that stimulant-based meds like Adderall or Concerta would NOT be right for me and my body chemistry.
I'd like to start with non-stimulant Strattera and see if that helps, and only take a stim as a last resort. I've heard mostly good things about Strattera in adults, but also some bad things. As for Adderall and Concerta, I've heard a pretty even mix of good and bad.
And then there's Attend, a non-prescription, natural remedy (w/ long ingredient list) I've read some very promising things about!
As you can tell, I'm still researching. I'd love to know YOUR experiences with any/all of these remedies, or others! 🙂
To person #1: thanks for the most off-topic and useless answer I've gotten all week! Clearly you only replied so you could earn 2 points. 😉 But hey, that's ok – we all have our motives!
