Hi, Hola, Ciao!

Hey all. Sal here from NYC. Twenty-five y.o. male ADD'er just trying to survive in a city full of distractions...

Stumbled upon this forum while neglecting my work (shocking, I know).

I haven't used meds for almost a year now. Every day is a struggle (but I've certainly gotten used to it- I mean, I don't know it any other way, ya know?), but not sure I'm ready to go back. Is the trade-off worth it? Sure, Adderall keep me focused and in my chair...but where did my personality go? Then again, this desk job has all but killed my creativity, ambition, and desire...

Anyway, I won't bore you by getting too detailed just yet, this post is just to say what's up!

How's everyone doing today?

Re: Hi, Hola, Ciao!

Hi Sal -- (Saladd, love that). I'm in Manhattan and there is at least one ADD in-person group to consider (I go whenever I can).

Adderall is just one med and if it is killing your personality it is either the wrong med or too high a dose IMO.

I've been through a bunch of meds before arriving at a cocktail that is working for me now.

Re: Hi, Hola, Ciao!

Welcome to the forums.

I used to be on adderall xr and I thought that it killed my personality too. It made me kinda anti-social and just less fun of a person. Now im on vyvanse and I think its a ton better as far as not zombieish like adderall. Maybe I was just on too high of a dose when I took adderall, but I like vyvanse a lot better.
