Well, it’s now October 2019 and I just found this site so maybe nobody else is still responding. But, yes, I have both ADD and narcolepsy. I’m a 72 year old female who self diagnosed after my my oldest son and then the other two were diagnosed. I’ve been on Adderall for 15 years (I think), can’t remember for sure. I take 30 mg on the morning, used to take another 30 after lunch, but with neurofeedback the 30 is adequate most of the time. The Adderall doesn’t help the ADD, though. I’m still easily distracted, have difficulty focusing and can’t stay on task. Fortunately I’m now retired (yay!)
