Re: Adderol with out my parents permission

ADHD is very easily misdiagnosed. Just because you responded well to the medication doesnt mean its a good idea to start taking it.

How long have you had these sort of symptoms that you mentioned?
Has it been for your whole life?

You mention that you are always feeling nervous... anxiety can cause ADHD symptoms, but the meds for ADHD can after a while make anxiety worse.

At such a young age you definantly need your parents to support and help you out with whatever issues you are dealing with. Whether it is ADHD or a similar problem. Is there a reason that you dont want your parents to know?

Alright sweetie...here we go...I was diagnosed with an extreme case of ADHD when I was 5, I'm now 21. I've been on every med in the book and I can tell you from personal experience, they are dangerous. Most of that stuff is concentrated narcotics. Please be careful, I have been in the hospital numerous times due to various meds (the worst was due to adderall). As far as talking to your parents, I would. It's great that you responded to the meds, but everyone does b/c it is a powerful drug. Be careful, please. Go see a child pyschiatrist and let them decide.

Re: Adderol with out my parents permission

You shouldn't take someone else's medicine, that is called drug abuse. The person that gave them to you can get into a lot of trouble for that. My son was in a similar situation and is going through treatment now for it. Even though it may seem like a little thing now to you, it can get out of hand very quickly. And the doctor's will not usually give you a controlled substance if you have a history of drug abuse even if you have ADHD. If I was your parent I would want to know what you were doing so I could help you.
