      Hi I’m new and my spelling and grammar isn’t the best so please forgive ant errors.

      So I’m in my 30s and never wondered or even consider that I may have ADD as I don’t think I have any symptoms; however my doctor put me on Phentermine for weight loss and it had the opposite effect on me. I became “zombie” like and it made my emotions go haywire and my depression much worse. When I told my doctor about the side effects I was having they said, “Sounds like you have ADD.”

      I’m wondering if I really do because I don’t think I have any of the symptoms. I guess my question is does everyone who has the opposite effect to stimulates have ADD? Or is it possible to have that effect and not have it?

      Use this online ADHD self-test to see if ADHD is something you might need to pursue. It doesn’t always present the typical list of symptoms.
