Default Re: 45 y/o only now got diagnosed... Alas.

Thanks, adderall has been recommended for me, but I'm currently working on balancing four different antidepressants, and my Psychiatrist didn't recommend adding another. Guess I'll just have to keep drinking a liter or two of coffee per day.

I am not a doctor, or counselor, but have heard of so many occasions were a person's struggle with ADHD was perceived or manifested itself as anxiety, depression, ocd, and even bipolar.

I thought I should share, since I witnessed it firsthand. I don't know your situation, but I do wish you the best.
