View Full Version : Concussions/TBI and ADHD

08-22-11, 02:03 PM
Hello all,

I started having concentration issues after a severe concussion in 2009. It took my doctors (neurologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and endless other -ists!) about two years to decide that stimulant medication might help.

The brain injury itself has healed up, but I'm still not back to what I was before the accident. I have extremely bad difficulties with word recall and went from reading dozens of novels a year (for fun!! remember that?) to not being able to get through a news article.

Has anyone else had this happen? Anything work / not work for you?

I just started Ritalin and so far it's helping a bit, but I'm wondering if I should be looking at other options as well.

Thank you! :)
