Quoting ~Julie Blue Eyes~:" It is over diagnosed AND over medicated. I have looked into ADD and ADHD quite extensively, seeing as ... [snip!] ... altering drugs are eaten like friggen candy, by both kids and adults, alike. Grrr. This topic pisses me off. No offense."


I was on 90MG at ELEVEN. :shock: :roll:



No joke, at every appointment if he got a bad report from my mom my dosage was increased. After a new pharmacist refused to fill it she switched doctors to one that lowered it to an acceptable dosage.

My son is in 15mg of adderall xr (sp? I always spell it wrong!) and he only takes it on school days or if we're planning on going out somewhere for a long time and it would be easy and possibky dangerous for him to get separated from us (large places like the mall, amusement parks ect) or where he needs to be able yo pay attention (hiking, when went into a public cave)

Smart plan. Those situations CAN be dangerous if he isn't able to pay attention, like if he gets distracted by something and doesn't notice he's left behind. That's happened to me as a kid lol

I wasn't diagnosed with ADHD until I was 19.
I wish I could have been diagnosed earlier, but when I was in elementary school, it was something that "only boys have", so words like "lazy" and "troublemaker" were thrown around in reference to me.
I have a lot of trouble with it. I can get lost in my own small town. I'll forget a load of laundry in the washer for 2 or 3 days and have to re-do it. I forget appointments, I'm horrible with time management, and my organizational skills are sorely lacking. I do try to work with what I have, but it's exhausting.
