    Seeing some posts here it seems that i am on the minority who actually thinks that medications work and is grateful for being diagnosed earlier in my life.
    I agree that not every case is the same and what works with some people it doesn't necesarily works with others, but going as far as saying that pills won't work is being facetious imo.

    me lol? God no. Weed be free, beer isnt that expensive. I spend most of my money on women (dates, going to meet em, bars, etc).

    I stated earlier that a lot of kids get labelled ADHD mainly because of either shitty parents, their diet, puberty, etc. But Adult ADHD seems to be pretty obvious. Some of the shit I do has nothing to do with concentration or any of that nonsense.

    weed > pills

    that's my professional medical opinion*

    *not a medical professional

    TBF, you're right.

    Was told I had ADHD when I was younger, took pills for it. The pills made me feel like shit, parents thought it was a bad idea but hope for the best. Did poor in middle school, not to tell in High School but I was one of the like 20% that actually graduated. Doing perfectly fine in college, so I just think my school was shitty.

    It can be hard to focus at times. It's odd to be listening to someone, then 10 seconds later you completely forget what they just said. I don't know why this happens since in certain things, I can have perfect memory of the entire thing.

    I dunno, usually when I'm around people I just stay quiet and only speak when to ask a question (rare), or criticize something (often, which leads people to laugh).

    All in all, not a big deal on my end. I don't take pills for it.
    I smoke from time to time though, but not ADHD, however...
    I'm epileptic. If not for weed, I wouldn't be able to make this post, play games, or watch movies.
    All I do is draw naked birds all day.

    these may possibly be caused by my ADHD. I smoke weed fairly regularly. Beer, I usually only drink like 2-3 times a week.

    Well, the whole point of doing drugs is to change your state of consciousness. Stop taking those before taking something new to be "normal"

    I only smoke pot. Don't touch the other shit no more. Oddly enough, I'm more fucked up when I'm "normal" than when I am stoned.

    When was the last time you went any significant amount of time being "not high"?
    I knew people who would be high all day everyday and then they would just acclimatize to it. Personally, I think it throws off your brain chemistry. It might be worth trying to go a month or two without it.

    Hecatom>>> While I agree that seems a bit presomptuous the echoes i got from others (kids ands adults) is that rilatin for example works but they can certainly live without it and do just fine at focusing on whatever (so no downsides like sleepiness). I'm sure you have no difficulty concentrating on something that interests you and spend hours on it without even realizing it, let me know about that.

    I dug a bit and found a few things (since i found all those on the website of the association that introduced me to it I tend to give it credit but yeah at least i'm sure you guys will find it interesting)

    I dont get high all day. I only smoke after work, or at the end of the day, for the most part. I occasionally will wake and bake if I have to clean up or have a long chunk of my day off doing nothing but staying in.

    Absofuckinglutely no way am I going a month or two without weed. May as well ask me to not drink for a few months too. Or no fucking.



    I got my meds. Gonna eat something then try them out

    Sorry to hear you struggle with OCD too. I can only imagine how scrambled you feel at times. Just remember that most OCD behavior is linked to anxiety and stress. The pattern that you see in most people is that some action brings them some element of comfort (like washing your hands, taking a shower, cleaning or organizing, turning on a light, counting, etc). And then when they feel stressed they turn to this activity as a means to cope, and eventually this coping becomes compulsive as the person doesn't know any other way to deal with their emotions.

    yeah, I do feel pretty fucking scrambled at times. It's a pain in the ass to just sit there for long periods of time doing nothing, because I can't figure out what I need to do. All the while, never motionless :(

    Scheduling has been pretty successful with children and adults with ADHD. Basically you make a steady schedule and stay to it. Kids know what's coming up so they can mentally prepare for it. Adults can create a schedule when they're feeling focused (research shows adults who make schedules follow it more when they're involved in making it, so getting someone to help is fine but you should be involved).

    So the schedule becomes like your anchor when you feel yourself getting lost. At first it might be harder for you to use the schedule, but with some practice most improve. Getting accomplished what you set out to accomplish is a great incentive. Just have something that's easily accessible and can be carried on your person.

    On the upside, often those with ADD and ADHD makes good drivers and machine gunners as they constantly visually scan their environment.
    Keep in mind ADD and ADHD are 2 separate disorders. ADD and ADHD are not just chemical imbalances, but sometimes completely different brain chemistry.

    It too bad ADD and ADHD is so overly diagnosed as a scapegoat reason instead of finding the actual cause to the child's issues. Some of the past methods of testing for ADD and ADHD have been horrible.
    Like "we are going to put you on meds anyways (without full diagnosis) and see what changes so we can make our diagnosis". I am so glad that went out of practice. Alot of ADD and ADHD diagnosis in children are from lazy, lazy medical, psychological and social work. Yes in some states a social worker or the school system can diagnose someone with ADD or ADHD, someone with no Medical/Psychological training.
    Some children group homes will be the one to "diagnose" children with what ever disorder for own purely bureaucratic reasons and to the disservice of the child.

    I was lucky to be diagnosed by my pediatrician who has some 30 years of experience in the field when I was 9, before it became a fad to diagnose very brat with ADD/ADHD.

    that's not really the issue. I'll know what my schedule is. I know what I have to do. I just don't do it. I sit there and kinda think about what I have to do and what needs to be done, then 30 mins have passed and I'm still there. The restlessness is my main concern though.

    People like that annoy the shit out of me.

Not to mention ADD meds have been proven to be very effective.

    Have you looked up herbal supplements that MAY help with ADHD? I would rather be dependent on a herb compressed pill than anything the a pharmaceutical company wants to put in me

    Also maybe try eating weed butter its a way different high, way more body high and barely any head high. this may be the best of both worlds? who knows tell you try it...

    yeah, I wanted to mention that, but forgot to lol

    The issue with ADHD is that a lot of kids on sugary diets, or going through puberty, get mistakenly diagnosed as having ADHD. So there is this stigma that it's a fake disease, created to medicate kids and shit.

    I'm a full grown adult. I don't drink pop, or eat snacks, really. No way you're telling me some of the fucked up shit I have to put up with, is due to my eating of salads, steaks, and chili.

    My brain is fucked. After awhile of taking this medication, I don't REALLY notice any improvements, but I do seem to be sitting still a little better lol.

    Next week, and the following week, the amount I have to take goes up though o.0

    me lol? God no. Weed be free, beer isnt that expensive. I spend most of my money on women (dates, going to meet em, bars, etc).

    I stated earlier that a lot of kids get labelled ADHD mainly because of either shitty parents, their diet, puberty, etc. But Adult ADHD seems to be pretty obvious. Some of the shit I do has nothing to do with concentration or any of that nonsense.

    Maybe I should have rephrased that.
    Do you smoke a lot of pot and drink a lot of beer?


    these may possibly be caused by my ADHD. I smoke weed fairly regularly. Beer, I usually only drink like 2-3 times a week.

    Well, the whole point of doing drugs is to change your state of consciousness. Stop taking those before taking something new to be "normal"

    I only smoke pot. Don't touch the other shit no more. Oddly enough, I'm more fucked up when I'm "normal" than when I am stoned.

    When was the last time you went any significant amount of time being "not high"?
    I knew people who would be high all day everyday and then they would just acclimatize to it. Personally, I think it throws off your brain chemistry. It might be worth trying to go a month or two without it.


    I dont get high all day. I only smoke after work, or at the end of the day, for the most part. I occasionally will wake and bake if I have to clean up or have a long chunk of my day off doing nothing but staying in.

    Absofuckinglutely no way am I going a month or two without weed. May as well ask me to not drink for a few months too. Or no fucking.



    I got my meds. Gonna eat something then try them out


    I have zero sympathy for anyone that does drugs that already alter the chemistry of their brain. Kromo basically hit the nail on the head. Fucking like those crackheads that get put on naltrexone or some shit to make their brains function normally again, which is a waste since they just go back to smoking crack since being normal is too overwhelming for their bitch asses. lol

    Try looking into shit that can help improve your life without pills before you go trying to change your shit based off what some guy that gets paid to write prescriptions tells you to do. Or not, I don't care, just it's a shame to see someone go down that road

    Does stuff like this really bother people with OCD or is it just a stupid meme?

    I don't believe I have OCD but that stuff bugs the crap out of me. Patterns that are slightly off because some dumbass couldn't figure out that the stone on the ground was supposed to face the same direction as the other 91.

    As for ADHD, the only experience I've had with it was a friend when I was a kid. He was a bit more hyper than the rest of us, but his grades weren't terrible and his focus didn't seem to be particularly lacking for a 11/12 year old. When he was about 14 he got diagnosed and put on some medicine for ADHD. He seemed to be a bit calmer and did a bit better in school, but that could be just because he was older.

    Seeing some posts here it seems that i am on the minority who actually thinks that medications work and is grateful for being diagnosed earlier in my life.
    I agree that not every case is the same and what works with some people it doesn't necesarily works with others, but going as far as saying that pills won't work is being facetious imo.

    People like that annoy the shit out of me. Soviet just had a DOCTOR, someone who had to have nearly a DECADE of medical training, prescribe him medication, meanwhile people with ZERO medical training are trying to tell him the DOCTOR is wrong. Not to mention ADD meds have been proven to be very effective.

    Hum. I have everything Soviet (and Hecatom btw) has (trouble focusing, sitting still, trouble sleeping, mood swings etc..) and I've seen my fair share of doctors, psychologists and nutritionists yet not even once have i been told to take meds.
    So, who's right between my specialists and the ones Soviet consulted ? The answer could be as simple as both of them.
    I didn't deny the efficacity of meds, sure it works and you can find plenty of people that are fine with them but is it really good in the long run ? I don't think so.

    I have trouble focusing on things i don't like (school homework for example) but still you can't stop my focus if i find something interesting. Strange uh ? Still i did some of my homework despite focusing on it being hard and without meds. How ? I just had to figure some tricks that would help me. Like Hecatom said, for me listening to music helps, you can think of it as a game or set goals ("I'm doing this before dinner" or something). Really the hardest part are the first ten minutes or so where you brain can go anywhere but on the task, after that it goes smoothly.

    Now I want to know some things about those meds. First, do they "shutdown" or limit your imagination (like thinking about multiple things at the same time) ?
    Second, do you feel less energetic ? (Soviet said that it helps him sitting still so the answer should be yes)

    What I think about this (again just my personnal opinion trying to help others that have the same "troubles") is if the answers are yes to both my questions then really, again, it is not worth it in the long run. Those two things (amongst others) are what makes you different and able to solve problems that others that don't have those troubles can't. Sure sometimes that's a real pain in the ass but i'd rather live with it than without it and believe me I have a really fucked up life.

    But if you started this thread just to have answers like "yes the doctor told you so take your pills and it'll be good" (no offense to those who answered that) then don't bother reading the rest and complain about it.


    Oh and for your interest despite having a balanced alimentation (is my english good on that? I wonder) I have a huge lack in Calcium, omega 3, some vitamins etc..
    I have it since birth and that's something that you can only figure with an extensive blood analysis (+urine i think but don't quote me on that) so you might want to consider it if you want to go further.

    There is no such thing as ADHD. Some people just need to pull their head out of their asses and focus.

    TBF, he has a point.

    @SoVi3t, you should read up on "Why French Kids Don't Have ADHD" as there's several articles (including Adult ADHD) how people outside of America think this is a psychological issue, not a medical one.

    Outside of America, people with ADHD are looked into seeing their lifestyle, and find ways to try to alternate it in order to help resolve this disability. Since America is a very pill happy country, we basically have a pill for literally any problems out there so of course you're gonna be recommended meds.

    Research does indicate that it's a chemical imbalance, so take your meds.
    This is debatable, as most of the time proven false.
    The only way of becoming chemically imbalance depends on the type of food choice, however taking meds will cause true chemical imbalance. Most people out there will recommend avoiding meds at all cost and just change up your life style. Others will want money, and just want you to buy meds.

    All in honestly, try taking on a difficult sport to help discipline you on a strict schedule.
    Change your diet; eat healthier.
    Change your lifestyle; whatever is causing stress, stop it
    Try joining boxing; have a coach yell at you what you're doing wrong and show up on a strict schedule.

    You should see changes in about 6 months.
    Or... you can keep taking the meds.

    thought I'd resurrect this thread, and make it a mental health thread, on the suggestion of other members of SRK. Now we have a place to discuss our massive depression, and ways to cope, deal with it, and possibly get better.

    I stopped talking to my family over all this. Last time I spoke to any member of my family was 1 year and 4 days ago. My doctor pretty much asked me 'do your issues bother you?' to which I replied NOPE, and he said I really didn't NEED to take the medication. I shouldn't need to worry about what bothers other people.

    Meanwhile my family is telling me I gotta take all those med's, and I can't ever drink again or smoke pot, because that could screw up the medication. I have a better idea, I'm gonna cut out your negative asses from my life, and continue to do things I enjoy, instead of what you demand of me.

    add me to facebook or something, if you haven't already. Some days, I sure as fuck could use somebody to talk to. No family means I basically only talk to my friends when they ain't working, or I'm working.

    I was on adderal in jr. High and early high school and I hated it. It made me sleepy for the first half the day then I would get mood swings the second half the day.

    When I ended up having to move out of state with my parents when I 19 despite having a job, girlfriend and was getting an apartment with friends I ended up severe depression (my parents couldn't figure out why) so I tried getting on antidepressants and all it did was make me lazy and I gained a shit ton of wait because of it. I would just lay in bed all day and play PS3. So it didn't really do anything.

    My gf is bi-polar and has depression.
    Best thing that ever helped her was a psychologist. She refuses drugs because they put her in a state that she feels she is not in control of. Whereas a psychologist makes her understand things more clearly and she can control herself or do activities that limit the negatives.

    This alays seems to be the best case for a lot of people I know who are bipolar. Your mind is ready chemically not where it should be. All drugs seem to do is further that or give very short bursts of results that have no long term advantage; if any.

    I had a really good friend who was bipolar and her mom tried to make her take any pill possible to help with it but none of them did but after 3-4 sessions with a psychiatrist who specialized with bipolar disorder and ocd she was a completely different person; for lack of a better phrase. You could just tell shit clicked with her more, she started going back to school and Was genuinely happy most days. She had her really bad days every once in a while but who doesn't? Mental disorder or not.

    Absolutely, brother.
    And support is so important. Gf had a pretty broken family... So something that could have been helped at an early age, was basically ignored and worsened.
