Personally I favor not going back on medications, but if you do, you should talk to your doctor about starting with strattera, that is a good idea. You can't tell in advance which will work best, but don't stay on any unless there is a dramatic improvement.
My son is 22 yrs old and he was diagnosed ADHD when he was small and he used to take Ritalin. He no longer takes ritalin. However, Aprox. 4 yrs. ago he was diagnosed with seizure disorder and started taking Depakote. Of course he was inquiring with the neurologist about something that would help him with focusing, concentration, and multitasking since he works and goes to school and sometimes he gets frustrated because I know he gets overwhelmed. The problem is that the Rx like Ritalin etc work well for ADD but are not indicated for people with seizures.
He prescribed Lexapro and I read online that that is given for depression.
Does anyone out there have ADD and also seizure disorder who takes medicine for their seizures. I would like to know if you take anything that helps you with your ADD.
Thank you.....worried mom
Is there anyone that has taken ritalin while pregnant? I talked with a Psychiatrist and he said half his patients stay on Ritalin while pregnant. I am trying to get info about this because I am struggling with the decision.
I was diagnosed with ADHD at 16 after years of schools telling my parents girls can't have ADHD.... I was on ritalin for a few years...a and now my dr has changed me to strattera... it is great :) love it....
good luck.. :)

Why Dr. Do you favor not giong back on meds?or is it you do not believe the disorder interfers in adult life ? I would like to understand.? Since this disorder untreated Is responable for high- risk behavior, drug abuse , suicide the list goes on and on and on and . Before anyone jumps on this comment i do beleive your other statement that there are to many children being put on meds that dont belong on medication for this disorder. But lest talk about what happens to the true ADHD adult that is not treated . Reaseach picture is not to bright? We dont know to much about adhd period.
