I have struggled with ADD my entire life. I was reading at college level in 6th grade, passed every test with no lower than a 97, and won my grade school, and high school geography and spelling bees four years in a row. The funny part is, i almost failed out of high school because i could not do homework. I just simply could NOT force myself to do it. Stimulant based treatments were met with little to no success…Adderall, Ritalin, Desoxy, Dexadrin, you name it i’ve tried it, and absolutely NOTHING works, i met some success with Klonopin (self administered) but with side effects that negated it’s usefulness. I was started on another medication, the name of which escapes me, which is an SNRI, and i was unable to gauge its effectiveness due to high levels of nausea.
so here’s my question: WHAT DO I DO!?!?!?!
ADD is unbearably frustrating and i need help. any suggestions of things i havent tried?
