Hi, just looking for info or guidance or anyone else’s experiences, my partner suffers with mental health and was recently sectioned. From this he was assessed for ADHD and diagnosed! He was put on concerta xl tablets at 18mg once a day! He’s been on these since last week, the dose to me seems very low considering he’s a big guy. I kept a log of how he was feeling on the tablets and they aren’t really having an impact, if anything he seems to be worse now than before. He doesn’t sleep or anything. He’s been moved to another mental health unit and is now been told he doesn’t have mental health issues and that his medication will be reviewed in 4 weeks.
Anyone’s partners going through similar? I’m struggling with how to help him as he is suicidal and no one is listening to him.

Often there are things co-morbid with ADHD, such a bipolar (for example). ADHD can lead to burn out, which causes a crash (what use to be called a nervous break down) but this is more a mental exhaustion thing. In such cases yoga, meditation, walks in nature anything that can relax him, help. With medication, I'd stick with the experts, it's complicated and based on medical history and other medications. Keep in contact with mental health services at all cost, and don't be disheartened if there's no quick fix. If it was a breakdown of some sort, chances are it will take a long time to recover from. Keep a diary to notice small improvements month by month, that can help with motivation. I hope this helps and good luck.

Rossall: Yes this site is a bit crap but there aren't many alternatives. I'm 51 and started on meds about a month ago (initially Xaggatin XL but now Delmosart). Seem to be working now.

pixiemum: Hi, as a newly diagnosed ADD sufferer at an advanced age, I was looking for a group to discuss, get advice and generally feel accepted. Am a little worried about what I have seen so far on here as there is so much advertising and spam posts.
