This is a very interesting post. Thank you all for contributing! I am a 68 y.o. Male. I’ve had add all my life and was diagnosed in my 40’s and tried Ritalin at that time but it didn’t seem to help. I had pretty bad depression also, so I ended up on Wellbutrin RX for a number of years until finally switching to St. John’s wort, which helped my depression , but my ADD not so much!
I retired. Now and driving my wife crazy with my disorganization and my unattentiveness about my surroundings. ( I worked by myself) I think my ADD is getting worse also.( hormones?)
Now I need to get educated about ADD medications, so here I am!
