moms with add...

I was diagnosed in highschool and havent treated since then. I went to the doc yesterday and was prescribed adderall.
Any other mom's on meds for ADD, weather you have been on it a long time, or just a short time.
Share your experiences with me. I am a little nervous.
I will start the med tomorrow.
Thanks

  • BradenIsMySon - telok to your primary care - I went to a psycatrist.
    My son is also ADHD and he is treated by his ped.
    I know how the med affects him, I just wonder how things will be different as an adult onthe med.
    Thanks!

  • I have it but always refused meds. At my age, I'm so used to it that I see no reason to change now
