I recently was diagnosed with ADD when I had my daughter tested, as it turns out, both my daughters have ADD (only one is hyperactive). I was both relieved and dismayed at not having had the diagnosis made earlier and finding an answer for inexplicable memory loss, lack of concentration etc. The dexamphetamine has also helped with my depression and I no longer have any side effects, although initially I did - sleeplessness, lack of apetite etc. I am 40 years old and catching up on some lost time, studying! - Better late than never.
: : information that anyone could give me would be appreciated.
