My wife is on adderol. It is no joke. Adult add and adhd makes life hard for an adult and those around them. my wife is off her meds right now because of the baby and it is hard to keep her focused and to remember things.

But, has she tried alternatives? Just curious about this.... I tend to believe most of the diagnosed indiviuals that are prescribed drugs could probably change a few things about their environments and personal habits.

If you met her while on medicine and off medicine there is a huge difference. She is add. Not hyperactive just can't stay on task. she has been tested for thought processes and found she has way over the average for a individual. Which means that so much travels in her head that she often is overwhelmed and forgets little things because too much is going on up there. Add adults often have a quick temper and frustrate easily because their brains are going a mile a minute. The adderol med is actual an amphetamine and it actually slows her down so she can concentrate. on meds she is calm and collected. no hints of a temper and very productive at work. without meds she is hot headed and work frustrates her because she can't keep on task. she'll go on a task and forget what she is doing halfway through it. To answer your question no, no other routes have been taken because she has it too severe. Our son is the same way. we tried other alternatives but he has it too severe as well. I have it mildly but the meds raise my blood pressure up too high so I don't take any. I drink black coffee to give me the same speed rush to compensate for lack of meds. I still have the temper though and I try to keep it under wraps the best I can.

Strange, Curious what level of physical activity you participate in on a daily basis and what your primary diet consists of.

She is a nurse and was a vegetarian for a long time. I drive for clay walker so I know as a driver that I don't have the best diet or get all the exercise I need. The last time I took meds i was at 6 ft and 190 lbs. New baby stacked weight back on. We are in the process of dieting. My brother has add and they treated it with making him drink a coke before he started his homework to help him concentrate. He is 6'2" 240 lbs. Bench presses 300lbs at 16 years old.

I am with you on that Moody. A lot of the symptoms witchdoctor describes fit to a lot of adults, including me... . My co-workers call me an 'excellent multi-tasker'. My Ex called me workaholic because I couldn't sit still for 10 minutes without wanting to do something. I have to force myself to relax.

I guess the question is when it actually becomes so bad that is is a problem... ?!

Like I said, she doesn't have the adhd, just the add. They are 2 different conditions. It affects life when she can't remember what she is doing from the couch to the kitchen.

Very interesting, I find that i can drift from my tasks at time times too. Usualy it is because they bore me but, if it is work that has to get done i also find exercsing helps get me back on track. I think alot of us like to be active and sitting constantly becomes a difficult task. Also, I think that certain foods and things in our diets have a big affect on our mental stability. Although, I certainly do not rule out the need for medicine for some individuals.

Well she is a floor nurse so I think she gets loads of excercise running from room to room for 12 hours per shift. I agree with diet and excercise for myself that is part of the reason I don't take anything. I can handle my slight condition. I too am known for my muliti tasking skills and find it hard to sit still and hard to unwind in the evening

Yeah, I guess some of us have a big imbalance in whatever triggers this kind of behaviour. I think the rest of us are just bored. :laughing6

Run him around the block a few times before you settle in for the evening. Wonder if that would help?

he'll do it. Problem is he is like that all day long. He is so worn out at bed time(8pm) he often falls to such a deep sleep he wets the bed. When the adhd is under control he doesn't wear himself to exhaustion and there is no bed wetting problem.

Believe me meds for the boy was a last resort. All attempts were made before we went there.

Well, I don't wet the bed to often anymore but, I still have to wear myself out on a regular basis or I will go non stop all night long doing around the house. If I time things right it works out well. Like when the house needs to be cleaned. :laughing6
