Hello I was diagnosed a few months back age 38. I started medication today and I jsit feel weird. I am taking 20mg of Elvanse. I’ts not improved my focus or my motivation. I am writing super fast and even more scruffy. I don’t think I could drive. And I’ve read that this medication should only be temporary and is highly addictive and can cause heart problems. I am wondering if it is worth it.
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.

stevekc: Hi I read Rossall's shout on introductions forum but apart from the Forum Staff's welcoming message I cannot find 'hello and welcome' thread...

Rossall: Hello all, well, after hunting for it in several pharmacies have finally taken my first tablet of Xagittin XL 18mg. Haven't noticed any effects so far.. I'm hoping I can now stay off the booze and feel less frustrated with my life.

Rossall: If you click on the introductions forum and then click on the 'hello and welcome' thread then scroll to the bottom there is a box for your post. Then click 'post quick reply'.

leafy: Hi been looking around and not figured out how to do a post just to say hello, apart from on here?

Rossall: Yea, I used to get into arguments and get banned on internet forums, mainly after I'd had a drink but I'm a lot more careful now. Try the A-Z expandable file I linked to though, it really helps you get organised.

leafy: less and less fond of going online except for music, on my last therapy session she recommended/ I look. I have it looks safe thanks

leafy: Hi Rossall and thanks, staying off the drink is okish (aside when I got addicted to cough medicne.. some 7%!) massively dissorganised and getting much worse myself.

easilydistracted: and another if there's any sense in the world then all the time they've saved with just doing phonecalls for established patients they'll be more able to see the new patients like yourself

Rossall: Hi leafy, 8 months is a bit of a long time to wait after an assessment but hopefully it will come soon. There are lots of others in the same boat on here. A fellow alcoholic here. Well done for keeping off the booze.

leafy: i really want someone to understand me atm (aside from my dog) but don't understand or know what I want or articulate in

leafy: hello, this is not a reply to the above but I suppose it is. I had assessment about ? 8 months ago, diagnosis to come I think, although don't know what that is. Bit of a mess, have been for ages (more so since rehab jan 2019 - not had drink since),

Rossall: I think it varies by area. Once you've been diagnosed I wouldn't have thought the wait for the psychiatrist would be too long. I would guess it would be a case of weeks rather than months.

frankieadhd: Hey everyone! I was diagnosed this morning and was told the next step is a psychiatrist appointment for medication and forgot to ask how long it takes. Anyone have any idea?
