Re: Is this ADD or laziness? Just cant distingush!

Thank you Arthos for the post. I think I will ask My doctor for his opinion on trying higher doses. On reading the posts here about prescribed doses even for school children, I think my initial doses will be as good as no medication.
My Strattera dose for several weeks was only 25mg. On reading this forum I asked my doctor several times and later he agreed to give a try. and at 80mg only I started feeling some reduction in resistance to do my tasks.
I think on concerta also I will ask him to give a try.
In my case and observation this problem called my ADHD is a overwhelming feeling which automatically gets attached to my main tasks which needs to be done consistently. Also a inability to wait for some good result to come. I need to know the result immediately. I think that is what they call a inability to achieve delayed gratification.
May be all that included is what you are saying as self-regulation.
Strattera has given me control over some aspects like staying away from unwanted relationships which were exploiting me. before this I was not able to do what I need to do in relationships. But in work That capability is not yet achieved.
