    I’ve booked an appointment and I’m going to ask for medication.
    Help! What medication is a good start for a 40yr female? (FYI I suffer with anxiety and drink too much alcohol)

    I found my path by wading through the mud until I had my Son, then I sank. Not from breast feeding, the birth, the sleepless nights, the constant crying- no. Life crashed because I couldn’t organise my house with the compulsory addition of a boyfriend and the new babies belongings. (Mostly my impulse purchases)

    We have 11 rooms in this house and only use 4 because the rest are filled with boxes that I can’t unpack. I’ve hyperfocused on educating myself about ADHD and I’ve made the appointment.

    I just need to know what to ask for! I’m in UK.

    Follow your doctor’s lead on medication. Everyone has a different experience on each of the ADHD medications available. Here’s details on ADHD medication so you know what to expect:
