I was dx. at age 60 (4yrs. ago) with ADD. I have taken Adderall XR all this time -except for 3 months to try Vyvance, which didn't help at all. I've gradually worked my way up to 45 mg of Adderall XR per day. I see my psychiatrist every 3 months and I have told him I feel my symptoms have become worse -especially with impulsiveness and distraction. He will increase the Adderall XR and outside of the Vyvance that is the only medication I've been offerred to get this under control. I would like to stop the Adderall XR and take the homeopathic medication this website recommends. Would I take it as the label instructs? -and should I start taking it before I phase out the Adderall? The self test offerred here showed I had ADHD symptoms. By outward appearances I am laid-back and slow moving without any signs of restlessness, but inside my mind can go faster than I can keep up with it! I can get coated over with "parallysis of will" and simply daydream away what needs to be done to be organized at home. I work 2 jobs in pediatric skilled home health nursing. I do use a planner with my work and force myself to complete my paperwork on time. My planner keeps me in line with being organized and prepared and a 'time- timer' has helped with time management issues. I have no routine at home and have no idea how to make a routine for getting my home organized, or my bills straight, or how to let go of un-necessary things that I have in 2 storage units and also taking up one room in my apartment after a divorce 3 yrs ago. At this rate my goal could include a 'mini-series' on Hoarders by next year! I didn't intend to put so much about myself into this message, but after reading so many positive results from others and relating so well to the articles I've read, I've realized I could have learned more about my symptoms and felt grounded and supported in a group setting to discover ways to face my symptoms and gain control of them, instead of avoiding them and allowing them to take control of me. I will appreciate any suggestions, advice, and/or steps to get organized, start the healthier homeopathic med, and begin living a healthier life and happier lifestyle!
