I’m 62 years old and ADHD has been around a long time I had it ruff when I was in school believe me
I was fine as long as I was not in school so it seemed
I was about 12 when my Primary doctor thought I had ADHD very few new about this in 1970
When he went to put me on a small dose of Ritalin it was the weirdest thing I felt like I was in
in slow motion.

The reason why that I did not know then it proved how hyper I was and now I was really normal
as far as most other people go BUT it was the worst feeling like you been drugged to have a tooth pulled
or something maybe not that bad but it was to drastic of a change so I suppose the sooner you know the better.

Step one: Find out what type of ADHD you have there are 7 different types.

Step two: Once you know what type you have do what it right for your type. https://www.amenclinics.com/
