Creating a subform?

How do I go about creating a subform on a specific topic?

You Don't.

Admin does, and only very rarely, when there is a *very* good reason to create a new subforum.

Regards.

Re: Creating a subform?

My own feeling, and I'm not an admin or moderator: If you have a topic that truly doesn't fit under one of the categories we already have, it makes me wonder if it even belongs on the ADHD board at all. I do think the current categories cover everything. Just posting your thread and saying "I'm not sure where this one fits in..." is commonly done. Every one of those that I've seen, it did easily fit in one of the already-existing categories, or else didn't belong here at all.

Re: Creating a subform?

Well, I only asked because in the medication section. I thought there should be more information on a class of drugs known as Tricyclic Antidepressants or (TCA's) used in ADHD treatment besides for just: imipramine & desipramine.



I mean Amitriptyline is one,Protriptyline is another. I feel that for Adults with ADHD,non-stimulant medications(including Strattera & anti-hypertensives) should be covered as thoroughly as all of the stimulant options out there.


Because in some cases, doctors might decide to add additional medications for adult ADHD patients who are literately suffering due to ADHD. & don't have other health problems that contraindicate their usage. My own ADHD neuropharmacologic regimen consists of: Vyvanse 60mg, Amitriptyline(Tricyclic Antidepressant/TCA) 10 to 15mg 2 to 3 x daily & Nadolol(Beta-blocker/anti-hypertensive).

Obviously based on my signature, it's clear I have many other health issues. However, some GPs, neurologists, & psychiatrists, might be willing to try a similar drug regimen for other patients like me out there.Not every child or adult takes just one stimulant or non-stimulant medication for ADHD. As this is a fairly complex neuropsychiatric illness.


In my case, I had to read up on different non-stimulant drugs that might be okay to take with the stimulant(at certain dosages) & then go into my GP & neurologist's office to ask about the combination. My hope is to make the information on treatment much easier for busy adults with ADHD. Who are struggling,because they are one or two of the typical ADHD drugs that are not nearly as helpful as advertised.

It's all about love for me fellow hyper-kinetic's that's all.

Re: Creating a subform?

You can post in the Imipramine etc. section, or in "Anti-Depressants" if you prefer.

Im my capacity as a member I agree the organisation of the Meds section could use a bit over a re-arrangement.

Bear with us for now

Re: Creating a subform?

I think, we really need a subforum for people who don't have ADHD, think they have all the symptoms anyway but mainly just want to be part of the ADDF family

Anyone who has all the symptoms, has ADHD. The symptoms are the only criteria. There is an analogous rule regarding the accepted criteria for positive identification of a duck, which I probably do not need to repeat.

Well, the symptoms aren't the only criteria. There's proof of impairment too.

And what about if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck but can also recite all prime numbers with 11 digits..in Klingon??

Umm...nope... there is a caveat in almost all if not all diagnoses in the DSM:

"Symptoms are not better accounted for by somatic disorder, medication, substance use or other psych conditions" [I'm paraphrasing]

My diagnosis is Bipolar Type 2. I suffer about 85% of the diagnostic symptoms of ADHD as per the DSM, and have had about half of these since childhood. I am clearly impaired. But I do't qualify for an ADHD dx as my symptoms are better accounted for by another condition.

Fuzzy, I got the joke. I guess you notice that I can type quite a bit or stay pretty focused,huh. Well let me tell ya", it don't come easy,lady. Vyvanse, Amitriptyline & Nadolol(all ADHD meds for me, & all of em have wicked side-effects. ) I'm as ADHD as they come though.


Good to know that my ADHD is finally improving, though!

Having an impressive memory, especially for geeky things that happen to have caught our interest, is quite common in ADHD. I can recite and write out several collections of poetry that I like, in a few different languages, and I wrote my own inane little periodic-table song. (which I never finished...) Actually, the first time I noticed my affinity for memory tricks was long before I knew I had ADHD. At quite a young age, I received a book about the mind - one of the items in it was a little test to prove that memorizing meaningful words is easier than memorizing meaningless words.

The supposedly-meaningless words (a couple of which do indeed have meanings, but I didn't know them at the time) included bej, tun, saf, yer, hif, dak, and pob. I can't remember any of the meaningful ones. (and I haven't seen that book since I was about 13.)

Thanks for the correction and clarification. Some ducks are apparently impostors.

Re: Creating a subform?

Yeah, I'm like you. I remember useless stuff all the time and my head is full of it. :P What you wrote triggered a memory actually. During fifth grade when in Swedish class we had vocabulary homework and for some reason the word "smatt" just glued itself onto my memory, can't remember anytime where I've actually used it though. :P
It means "a small and narrow passage".

I am generally good at learning languages though, and my vocabulary is actually quite versatile. It's my one thing that I'm truly good at. :P I often learn words on the go without even realizing it then I just start using them when need be.
