Adult ADD

I am a 50 year old, peri-menopausal female experiencing chronic symptoms of hot flashes, agitation, depression, etc.  I also have ADD, not currently on meds but have a very hard time concentrating on anything.   I just started on Lexapro.  What ADD med would you recommend for me?

Hello,
   since I am not a physician, I can not offer an opinion on medications. I would seek a consultation with a psychiatrist as soon as you can.

Best Wishes
