Hi,

I'm new here on this forum.
I am really happy to have found this place
And other people like me.

I've spent a lot of time trying to pretend like I don't have ADHD.
I was diagnosed as a 3rd grader and put on ritalin for a short bit.
(My parents were anti-med).

Then I tried to get on strattera in college but it was horrible.
And other than that - pretending and dropping out of classes
Until now...
I didn't want to go on stimulants
as an undergrad because I was doing NCAA track.
And amphetamines - although "allowed" with a script etc are frowned upon.
So I tried strattera but it made me throw up and exhausted.
I just tried to muster through it (exercise helps me certainly).

But now that track is over and I started grad school
I just got put on adderall xr about three weeks ago
And it seems to be working wonders.

That's my long-ish newbie hello.

Welcome Hope... good luck in grad school. Happy to hear you've found something that is working. I'm new here as well but not new to this challenging opportunity called ADD.

I fully agree, exercise is vital to mental and emotional well being.

Where did you run track, if you don't mind?

Best,
Shawn
