If she is diagnosed ADD “inatentive” let her try. At 55 years old I stumbled on Neurological Normal when my doctor let me go on phentermine for a 60 day weight loss program. I have known I had ADD my entire life, but never knew Neurological Normal until the side effect of phentermine which only lasted a few days. Now on 50mg of Vyvanse and trying to work it out. The focus is phenominal…I feel like thoughts trapped in my head for decades are now flowing out quite lyrically. Still trying to adjust the crash in the afternoon, but the meds have changed my life.

Big deal here. I was almost immediately more cerebral and understanding. Able to identify stress triggers and deal with them in a much more logical manner.
