Is this supposed to be a symptom of ADD? My doc switched my medication to Adderal from Dexedrine, might this help?

Medications help with focusing but external management systems are required for mess control,

I agree. The only effect on my slob tendencies has been I TEND to remember to put things back a bit more often than before meds. Things like tools, books, laptops, shoes. I am leaving less of a mess scattered about. I still keep misplacing stuff.

I can relate to this .. I think I am ADD and I believe my wife is as well.
we are both pack rats. we keep things thinking we will find them useful
at some point in the future .. my garage gets so bad I sometimes cannot walk from one side to the other.. stuff piled everywhere. Her craft room and my den are the same way
I hope when diagnosed I can stay focused on the task of cleaning it up, get rid of things I never use. let us hope!

My experiance is that the meds with allow you to focus, you have to choose to focus though. It doesnt provide the modavation to do the said task.
