trying medications for ADD ADHD

ADD ADHD medication question:Recently posted:"My doctor is prescribing brupopion for adhd. Is this experimental? Am I a Guinea Pig?"   My response: buprion is a well known antidepressant that works on the same neurotransmitters as the stimulants, and is sometimes effective for ADD. If it works for you, it is probably a better choice than the stimulants. It is "experimental" only on you – we never know what the right medicine, or the right dose, or the right scheduling is going to be until we…See More

Taming The Book Proposal

Taming the Book Proposal: The BasicsOh, that most maddening of documents! For so many of us eager to move forward with our nonfiction projects, it looms large like a guard at the queen's castle, blocking the path to publication. Its perfection eludes us yet it stands there teasing, "Complete me, or your manuscript will never see the light of day, mwahahahaha!"In truth, that's a lie. Every author has the option of self-publishing. However, there are advantages to writing a book proposal instead…See More

ADD ADHD and change of schedule!

I changed my schedule. And Oh, my!

Wake up.

Pills, pills, and more pills.

Kegl exercises (don't ask).

Quiet time.

Check net.

Breakfast and read paper.

Brush teeth.

And so my day is begun –

Change of schedule

But recently I realized that I feel better if I eat breakfast earlier. But that changed everything, and I'm forgetting to do things, forgetting to brush my teeth, forgetting quiet…

ritalin, daytrana, sleep?

My Daytrana patch is helping.

This is Ritalin absorbed through the skin. It gives me more control and doesn't have the G.I. side effects I get from Ritalin. But I need to remember to take it off early, so that hopefully I can get to sleep at night (that's another topic).

But I don't remember.  …

Don't need structure

Escape from structure

Camil and others write about being free of structure, "Relief from all this silly rules." And "Just let my mind fly anywhere it wants to."

That sounds wonderful to me, and now that I'm retired, seems like it could be possible.

Would that work for me?

I don't think so:

1. I do like to be functional and…

Wellbutrin

I am early 50's and recently diagnosed with adult Add. I tried adderall and it didn't work. Messed me up. I have been put on a low dose of wellbutrin. Has anyone else taken this? Did it work?

Retirement, Time, and other ADD ADHD Illusions

With ADD, ADHD, we tend to be interested in a lot of different things.

When we moved to Santa Fe, I planned to cut down my practice. Then I would have time to do things on my wish list, like woodworking, painting, hiking, etc.

Not!

I wound up doing my own bookkeeping, secretarial work, and screwing around with the insurance companies. My practice quickly became a full-time job.

Then I retired.

Now I will have time to do all…

7 Crucial Tips for Parents and Teachers of Children with ADHD "Uncommonly helpful, down-to-earth, immensely practical and readable Book." - David A. Crenshaw, Ph.D., ABPP. Director of Rhinebeck Child and Family Center, LLC

Books

“'One Boy's Struggle' is a real eye-opener! Bryan writes of hope and despair, and the all-too-common conflict between desperately wanting to achieve and please, yet suspecting that you’ll fail again… and soon.”
-Dr. Edward Hallowell

Book on Doubt

Writer's Doubt is not specifically about ADHD. It is about how I, with ADHD, overcame doubt and became a prolific writer. For anyone who has ever felt doubtful about what they are capable of.

Caution

Please remember that when discussing medication and / or supplements each member is responsible for his or her comments. Each person's experiences may be different and no one should make any changes or try anything new with regard to medication or supplements without talking to his or her doctor first.
