Just an update. I found a good doctor. He listened to me and seemed to understand that I have been struggling with this for many years.

He prescribed Adderall… 5mg twice a day for the first 7 days, then 10mg twice a day for 7 days, then seeing me again to assess.

Right out of the gate I am amazed. I never really realize how different it can be to not feel like an race horse want to burst through gates all the time, because I have never known anything different.

My mind is calm now. First big difference I noticed is my ability to get some things done around the house. Next thing I noticed was the change in my driving… I am so much calmer, and in no hurry.

I was hopeful that medication would help me, but skeptical, I have never really trusted psychology or medicine, and I don’t like taking pills. Man I am glad I took a chance to get some help.

Only side effects for me seem to be feeling a bit warm, and a little thirsty.

Very hopeful now that I have found a doctor that seems to understand how I am feeling and why I need help.

If anyone else in Las Vegas needs a good doctor, let me know and I will advise.
