NEED ADVISE! 28 & just was diagnosed with ADD!
Hi, I have been researching about adderall for a couple hours now since I was diagnosed again with having ADD. Within my research I read your blog about how kids take it to just get high or have the energy to get through school. You really got me pumped because I know that I have had ADD for a long time but I am just now being diagnosed at age 28. My point being is I got through college just fine!
What I wanted to ask you is, I read somewhere that is ADD is untreated for a long period of time, like for example a doctor did not notice it until you were an adult, does that mean that the adderall will not work? He only started me on 10mg a day to see how it goes but I am just a little freaked out and would like to know someone elses experience on this medication as being an adult, having already gone through big life changes.
My ADD has become so bad, I mean as bad to the point where I have almost lost a 3rd job now because I cannot keep my mouth shut. I am impulsive, I cannot listen to anyone speak and when they do speak to me I try and find something to do-like staple a stack of papers in the office or something. I just hope you know where I am coming from since I am an adult, kind of set in my ways in certain aspects in my life, so I am hoping this will help me change. If you have a chance to tell me about your first experience and how it worked for you that would be amazing!
Oh, and since the doc is starting me on 10mg should I split it in half so I have two doses? Just wondering. Hopefully you remember your message from 2010 because it is still hitting the hearts of people to this day.
