adderall alternatives for ADD?

Posted by Steffany on February 27, 2001, at 12:57:15

this is actually a problem my boyfriend is experiencing, but i was wondering if anyone else had experienced a return of their ADD symptoms after being on adderall for a while? he's been on it for about 2 years now (ritalin upset his stomach/didn't work); he was also on paxil until august of this year, when he decided to stop it due to side effects and really bad withdrawals. anyway, he still takes the adderall, 10mg twice a day, but lately it doesn't seem to be helping. he's really anxious about schoolwork, keeps forgetting assignments, appointments, deadlines, etc., cant seem to get anything done and is very frustrated w/himself. i'm wondering if there's another medication out there he could try? i'm also wondering if anyone has ever gone through a 'specific' sort of psychotherapy for ADD--like cognitive-behavior therapy, only specifically designed to help people with attention deficit/memory prolems? thanks!
