Hey there!
I'm a newbie to the board. I had trouble in school paying attention and my step mom thought I had ADD, but we never pressed the issue. She was able to get the environment slightly modified to help me succeed.

I forgot about for awhile. I went on about in life. I worked and started college. I struggled MAJOR. I couldn't focus. I would "tap out" of lectures early on. Studying was hard. My classes are hard.

I decided to investigate the idea that maybe I do have ADD. I thought I had anxiety too. I made an appointment with a psychiatrist. I took a test and they asked several questions to get a feel for what was going on.

I was Dx with ADHD. I tried to argue, as I'm not "hyper". He said ADHD in adults manifests like "anxiety" in the sense that my mind is constantly racing and won't shut down.

He prescribed Vyvanse, but that did nothing. He switched to Adderall IR 30mg. Does anyone have experience with Adderall?

Re: Adderall

Adderall is good, though personally I prefer Dexedrine (very similar to Adderall). Is it working for you?
