Newbie Introduction

Hello all,
I have been reading hundreds of posts here and finally just knew I had to join.

I thought I was somewhat “in the know” about ADHD because I raised my now 20yr old son, who was diagnosed around age 5.
Turns out, I didn’t know anything............at least not enough to recognize my own symptoms.
A new work position triggered my decision to look into it and now, at 45, I have been officially diagnosed with severe ADHD
I see my regular doc today to discuss treatment medications.

Tons of amazing information here and I’m grateful for that. I hope to learn all I can reading more, and now, through what I experience

Re: Newbie Introduction

Thanks everyone. The doc, after receiving an official diagnosis from a psychologist, pretty much let me choose my starting med brand when I told her I’d been reading everything I could find

I chose Vyvanse and she prescribed 30mg per day for 2 weeks and after those two weeks we will talk over the phone and adjust the dose from there.
I’ve read a lot of posts on this site where some doctors aren’t as cooperative so I feel lucky for now.
