I’m a 62 year old male who presents as high functioning to most of the world. At the urging of my wife, I was tested/diagnosed with ADD only six years ago and prescribed an 18mg daily dose of Concerta. It helps prevent the “fog” that I often would experience while working and performing tasks. In my case, taking a pill does not address my personal problems, but it does provide me with the clarity necessary to (sometimes successfully) address them. It’s known to raise your blood pressure, so make sure it’s closely monitored.
