  • I am ADD. I took meds `10 -12th grade in highschool. It made a huge difference I went from failing school to decent grades.
    I don't take meds now as an adult (altho if I had a desk job I would have to), but I have been considereing going to see a doc about trying meds now.
    good luck

  • Is it expensive to get a diagnosis and medicine. I REALLY believe I am ADD and need something. I do have a desk job, and i can't remember half the time everything I need to do.

  • Have you ever looked into the fact that the cleansers in our home release toxic chemicals into the air and that can have a real impact on ADD and ADHD? My sister in law was diagnosed with that and she refused meds because of the way it made her feel. So she switched to all natural ingredient cleansers and personal products and has felt a true difference. She also started taking vitamins that were 85% soluble and together she is doing extremely well!
