What happens if you have ADHD and you get hyper in jail?

If you have an official diagnosis of ADHD and you’re in jail or prison and the people in there know about it and you’re bouncing off the walls hyper what do they do? If its nowhere close to yard time will they let you run to get rid of some of the energy? Or what do they do?

How does ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) affect other aspects of one persons life?

I know that some people who have ADD struggle in school. How else do people with ADD struggle in their life?
My boyfriend has ADD and he can focus really well when it comes to being in a relationship with me. When we talk on the phone he’s pretty focused. School was the only aspect of his life that he truly struggled the most with. He didn’t finish school. My boyfriend works two jobs and he’s focused at work.

What kind of ADHD meds are there in Korea?

Hi. I am working in Seoul for a month now and I am covered with national insurance. Do they have the same ADHD meds as in the US? I was showing great results on low doses of adderall, ritalin and focalin. All 3 worked great at 25 mg/day. Does anyone know if they recognise ADHD in Korea, what meds they have and how to get them? I will run out in 2 months. Thanks.

Could being Emotionally Disturbed and Attention deficit disorder be used in court against a sex related case?

This just has to be a legit argument. Seeing that the accused doesn’t need prison time. But needs help with his brain. Prison won’t do a person like that any justice. Lets not be bitter. Lets be real.

How come people with ADD/ADHD have to sit in the same spot everytime?

I notice that people with ADD or ADHD always have to sit in the same spot in a classroom everytime. What the hell is that?
This is college students I’ve noticed doing this. One girl even said "I just really like this seat for some reason" and this other boy freaked out silently because someone took his seat.
