How many years on meds ?

Hello everybody i write this post because i would say that im a little bit scared of the fact that i took methylphenidate and adderall for 13 year in a row (6 year old to 20) now im 25 years old and im scared of getting a neurodenerative disease like parkinson or something like that so i was wondering how many of you took adhd drug for more than 10 years in a row in your life ? What was your starting age ? and at which age did you stop taking them ? And how old are you right now ? I think about that fact every day and its killing me.

Re: How many years on meds ?

Started at 41, am 48 now, no issues.

I had a friend who took 90mg of Dexedrine per day from age 17 until age 60...no issues...and I knew her from age 50 to age 60.

As psychiatric medications go, these are some of the oldest, most studied, and statistically safe medications known.


Cheers,
Ian
