One of my sons is ADHD inattentive type. Once he was diagnosed I googled the hell out of it and realized I am too. I have been since childhood, but in the 70s and 80s they didn't diagnose it unless you had a major problem because of it. I got Bs and Cs in school, so they didn't see a problem, but my IQ was borderline gifted. I really struggled to get the grades I got, though. I have lost/quit jobs because of my inability to concentrate and impulsiveness. So.... here I am.... 38 years old..... and my doctor prescribed Concerta for me. The same med my 13yo is on. I like it. I am more productive and my thoughts are more in order. But I think it's odd that he would prescribe this to a middle aged housewife. What are your thoughts?Answer Question

I have ADHD but after living with it for 47 years without meds, I've learned to deal with it. I wouldn't feel like me if I were on meds.
