: I can't believe it has taken me so long to find out this problem. I am so tired of watching so many TV's sort of speak at the same time. Does that make sense??
: What meds have worked best for any of you and dosages. I have heard of adderal, dexedrine, rittlan, and welbutrin. The welbutrin surprized me, i thought is was for depression.
: Please give me as many replies and info on your experiences as possible. I would really appreciate it.
I think you are going to have to let your doctor decide which medication is best to try first based on what ADD symptoms you have. What works for one person doesn't always work or causes side effects for another person so it would be hard to tell you what may work the best for you. For some people they need a combination of several drugs in order for things to be effective. Let your doctor help you come up with the drug that is right for your specific problems. Good Luck.
