New Member Medication Question-ADVICE!
May 24, 2017 - 1:36 PM - by maa110977
Hello! I am 39 and a female and I have been dealing with ADD since I was in 8th grade! I have been on Adderall for many, many years! I have taken time off of it of course during the pregnancies of my daughters. I feel like it works but my doc has also mentioned Vyvanse. I have been on 40mg, I take it three times a day and so it totals 40. My concern in changing is how Vyvanse can affect afternoons or if it still works than? My last dose now is 10mg at 4pm. I feel like some days I could be... [Read More]

Hi. Just chatted with my primary physician and it was recommended that I talk to a psychiatrist. Deep down I know my chronic procrastination will delay that for a while, so I was hoping to post here to see if I have a real problem or if it's in my head.

Here are some facts about me, not all necessarily tied to ADD:
  • Always struggled just to be average in school
  • Had to have one on one tutoring as a kid
  • Had to sit in the desk next to the teacher at one
