In reply to Re: ADULTS W/ ADD AND MEDS THAT WORK, posted by denise on September 1, 1998, at 19:23:56

I am one of the late in life accepted ADDers.At
36 I was finally given the right to be me.A smart
woman that could accomplish anything that did not
require organization or coordination.Long befor
Doctor's gave me the OK to be me, and the ritalin
allowed me to succeed at life,I had a very
sapportive husband who would just shake his head
and smile when I had what he would call" A
Julie Day".
Recently I had to change Doctors and this guy
changed the ADD( he said it's just a cover label
for mild mood disorder) and put me on Depakote.
Never have I been more disfunctional-My husband
said I seemed like I was on the verge of a mental
break down.I couldn't even stay on track long
enough to finish a sentance.Yet alone drive a car
or work
After 3 weeks I
switched a clinic for Add and am now on Adderal
15mg AM & 5mg PM it seems to be doing very well.
What I've learned though is to find a good doctor
true, but also follow your gut instincts( mine was
against the depakote -hubby said give it a try)
and to research for your self.Also love ADD for
what it is , a unique way of seeing life around
you and to always see beyond the edge of what
you encounter.The flower is pretty but the little
bug down inside is amazing - most "normal" people
lack attention to detail where as God has blessed
us with the ability to EXPERIENCE IT ALL!!!!!!!
