Thank you for replying, Inak! Have you been able to see the specialist yet? Have you done Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and if so, has it helped? I’d like to if I can find someone in my insurance plan who specializes in it. Being diagnosed with ADHD is overwhelming me because it’s another thing on my plate and will take a lot of time and energy to address.

Interesting about the hormones. I’m wondering if they’re causing my ADHD to blow up. Haaaa!

You’re right that anti-depressants don’t help ADHD. I’ve been on Effexor XR due to depression for years now. I’m wondering if ADHD is the underlying problem and they missed the boat. Impatient as I am, I would like to see the effects of Adderall immediately but agree it will likely take some time to figure out the right dose or medication.
