Contact

Hello Visitor,

I’m Mike, creator of QuittingAdderall.com. If you want to contact me for any reason, you can email me here: mike@quittingadderall.com. I’m pretty quick about responding to technical issues with the website, but right now my schedule is so full that it’s difficult for me to guarantee you a response on pretty much anything else.

Here are some questions I get via email a lot…

1. Are you still off Adderall?

Answer: Yep!

2. Are you happy?

Answer: I’m deeply fulfilled, and making huge progress towards goals that are really exciting to me (hence the busy schedule). Still working on the happiness thing though. I tend to treat happiness as a long-term goal rather than a state of mind (probably to a fault). I do feel like I’m getting closer to that goal though.

3. Do you feel “back to normal” in terms of your work and focus?

Answer: Yes. If I care about the task, I can focus on it infinitely. If I don’t like a task, I have developed ways of limping through it. I cannot stress enough how important it is to care sincerely about what you’re doing. For so many years I’d spend 8 hours per day struggling to complete work that I found pointless, while blaming myself for not being able to focus on it. The instant I started spending more than 2 hours per day doing something worthwhile, my focus shot through the roof.

4. I read that you’re a programmer. I am too. How has quitting Adderall affected your ability to program?

Answer: My web development skills have shifted focus since quitting Adderall. On Adderall, I spent most of my time doing backend coding (logical stuff). I can still do that, but these days I enjoy frontend coding and design more (because I feel more directly connected to the user’s experience), so I focus on that. Attention span-wise, I’m much more focused when I develop new projects than when I do bug fixes or try to untangle spaghetti code on old projects. I think that’s normal though: I can focus on the fun stuff; the tedious stuff not so much.

5. Why are you so busy?

Answer: Ok, so I may have taken my own advice about “filling up your life with work that you are naturally passionate about” a little too seriously. Currently, I work full time, go to school for psychology half-time, work in a psychology lab part-time, manage another website that I created after QuittingAdderall.com (that got really, really popular), and I’m trying to finish my first book. I love so much of what I’m doing, but there are no free hours in my life (except the 6 hours I set aside for social activities every Saturday).

    In your FAQ you talk about fighting the “urge to take the pill.”

    I was diagnosed ADD (predominantly innatentive type) at 13. My doctor was really good about easing me onto the drug, starting me off on 5 milligrams of XR for two weeks, then 10 milligrams XR for another 2 weeks, and then a meeting to see where we were. I got used to the drug slowly, and it made me blissfully unaware of the side-effects because they didn’t happen all at once. He put me on 15 milligrams, which wore off around 3 PM, so I started doubling up on my own before asking him to up the dose to 30 milligrams. After two years of being so unsocial I could barely talk, we moved down to 25 milligrams. Then, last year, after six years of being on adderall daily, my father decided to stop fulfilling my prescription. He said he wanted to know what I was like in-medicated. I was a little irritated, kind of bemused, but mostly sleepy. Felt like I was robo-tripping for two weeks straight. And all of the sudden food tasted good! It was desirable! How insane!

    My problems came when I went back on the aderall. See, when I’m off adderall, I am extremely low functioning. But it isn’t like adderall makes me some over-achieving prodigy. I failed out of community college on adderall. It gives me the ability to concentrate, but it doesnt force me to concentrate on school or work. I skipped class and drew instead of taking notes. Off adderall I’m an even bigger wreck, with a terribly short fuse for frustration.

    So we decided to start filling scripts again, this time at 20 milligrams (which, to my chagrin, wears off around 5 PM. Sigh.) this is were the “urge to take the pill” comes in. I’ve NEVER wanted to take adderall. I force myself to do it. I know what it feels like to jones, too: if I don’t have caffiene, I become irritable, antsy, and develop a low grade but constant headache.

    Going back on addy was the hardest thing I’ve ever, ever done. Way harder than quitting by far. That was easy: I stopped taking the pill, was sleepy and ate my entire fridge. Going back on it? The side effects were terrible. I didn’t work my up because I thought I could handle it. After three days of cold sweats and terrible head aches I gave up for months, selling it instead. Finally I started weaning myself back on it, and now I’m back to that awesome place I was before: a bit anti-social (wasn’t a butterfly to begin with), never hungry, but able to do things like wake up before 1 PM, get dressed and maybe even do laundry. (did I mention I’m a wreck?)

    MY MAIN QUESTION, AFTER A RIDICULOUSLY LONG INTRO:

    Do you have any tips for regulating food intake WHILE medicated? Food is so unappealing to me now. It tastes weird and I’m hyper-aware of texture, plus I never feel hungry. Today I ate 1,000 calories, 400 of which came from the sugar I put in my tea. The rest was from 5 Vienna finger cookies. (1 for breakfast, 2 for lunch, 2 for dinner.)

    I don’t want to die of scurvy, y’all, but adderall is my miracle drug and life is just fucking hard without it.

  2. Mike says:

    Hey Mary!

    Thanks for your comment. As for figuring out how to choke down your food while medicated, I have a couple suggestions:

    1. Eat at the same time every day. This is easier to do when you’re in a job rather than in school, but basically you want to find three dead spots in your schedule that you’re going to partially fill with eating. Like when you get to class, when you have an after noon break, and when you get home.

    Even eat the same food at the same places at the same time (e.g., Subway Sandwhich under the oak tree before Biology). You’re basically forming a habit and letting a mild form of OCD take over from there. You eat because this is when you chill out on the quad and eat, not because you’re hungry.

    2. Try wet and spicy foods. Adderall can dry your mouth out and numb your tastebuds. So “wet” food (basically anything that isn’t an un-sauced sandwich) will help the dry mouth, and spicy food will get your saliva going, which will also help you choke the food down.

    Note: I’m not sure how to describe “wet” food, but you’ll know it when you think of it.

    3. Treat yourself like crazy. Spend some money on food from your favorite place just to get yourself eating.

    Don’t know if any of that helps, but good luck!

  3. les says:

    Instead of the 2 to 3 candy bars for breakfast, I make myself drink a smoothie. Its the brain booster one on Dr. Oz’s website. After the first dose kicks in…
    for me, my desire to get healthy became bigger than that feeling of wanting to puke everytime I smelled food. 🙂

  4. Student says:

    Your website is amazing. Students these days are so pressured to do well. We resort to these kinds of medications to achieve… what other people want us to achieve. But at the end of the day with our great projects finished and our term papers written, everything feels like rubbish. I ran into your site while I was studying for an exam. Made me think “wow this guy is so right!!” Thanks for your writing! Keep it going. You’re definitely helping a lot of people.

  5. Mike says:

    Hey thanks, Student. Glad you like the site.

    And yeah, most school work does feel like rubbish, since most of us just bullshit exactly as much as necessary to make the grade.

    At least in the real world (outside of school) you can create things that last beyond the semester.

    Good luck on exams!

  6. Ryan says:

    mike can you lay out a time table of your withdrawl and quitting. and what dose u took and how u quit? thanks.

  7. Mike says:

    @Ryan – Sure. Here you go!

    Adderall Dose: 20-45mg/day for 7 years
    Quitting Method: Cold turkey

    Things to watch for as you read this:
    1. A gradual ramp-up of increasingly difficult obligations.
    2. A greater number of passion-driven projects entering my life
    3. Changing roles at my day job in appropriate ways

    1-30 days: complete mess, lots of oversleeping. Would probably have been fired if I hadn’t spent 6 years working like a superhero, and if my job wasn’t so flexible.

    1-6 months: Desperation period. Escaping however possible from the responsibility of having to work and define a purpose. Limping along at job. Leaning way too heavily on girlfriend. Begin to dip my toe in the water of changing careers.

    6 months: Dumped by girlfriend.

    6.5 months: Start this blog, my first public writing project. Beginning of rebuilding period.

    9 months: Enroll in night classes at super-easy private school to get field-specific courses on my resume.

    12 months: Blog begins to take off, marking my first success at something I am passionate about.

    1-2 years: Officially demote myself at work (from lead developer to customer support). Gradually increase my school course load up to 2 physical classes and 1 online class. Writing several blog articles per month. And exercising like an obsessed person.

    2 years: Realizing that the private school is a tragically expensive joke, I complete the mountain of bureaucracy to reenter [State University] (I dropped out many years previous to pursue software millions). Start with 1 class.

    3 years: Redesign QuitingAdderall.com. Launch second website. Ready for more classes at [State University], but difficulties with financial aid/scholarships keep me limited to one class.

    3.5 years: Resolve all financial aid difficulties by jumping through a million hoops, filling out dozens of forms, and taking days off from work to run all over campus. Ramp up to 2 physical classes per week.

    4 years: Ramp up to 3 classes for Fall 2011 semester. Transition at work from Customer Service to high-level Sales while adding more development work back to my plate as my (selective) interpersonal skills become noticed and my attention span becomes finally able to handle some regular coding again. Second website begins to take off, marking my second mini-success at something I am passionate about.

    In summary: When I first quit Adderall I was a worthless, depressed, desperate slug. Now, four years later, I am pulling most of my weight at work, continuing my education in a direction that better suits me, managing two top-ranked websites that I created from scratch, and still finding time to run and bike. I should also add that since going back to school I have maintained a 4.0 GPA at both the private school and [State University].

    I can’t really give you a timeline for how long it takes “to get back to normal,” if that’s what you’re asking. That depends on several factors, including:

    *How bad off you were before you started Adderall.
    *How quickly you change your life to suit the sober you
    *How much effort you put into growth. I should note here that many people wouldn’t take nearly as long to accomplish the above. Although driven in my own way, I am extremely lazy, and not very good at “rolling up my sleeves and getting it done”. I’m getting better, slowly.

    I still have difficulty focusing on something unpleasant for a long period of time. My attention span still isn’t GREAT, but it’s much better than it was when I first quit, and I’ve been able to find ways to work around it (and kick-start it when I have to).

    Hope that helped! Quitting Adderall is so miserable in the beginning, but it really does get better if you keep working at it. But it happens so gradually that you barely notice it until you stop and look back.

  8. Heather says:

    I am 2.5 days off appx 300 ish mgs of adderall….I feel like shit! Dont wanna move!!! I hate it. Been here before about 5 years ago,got 4 years clean and then retarded out and got back on it! This sucks!

  9. Heather says:

    WOW! I just saw that the guy who started this site was comin off 45 mgs….DAMN! I start a day with 3-30’s,then take about 6-7 more thru the day.I have a high tolerance and many doctors.Why do I feel even worse now!

  10. Gretta says:

    This website is awesome. The person before me posted she took 3 30mgs in the morning. I guess a lot of us have been there. I am quitting this crap and it is so good to read all the stuff from this website. Very inspirational. Mike knows where we’re comming from and it’s good to read his articles in order to anticipate what is next, without it being too scary.
    thanks for that. 🙂

  11. PreMed Student says:

    I stumbled upon this website just like I stumbled upon those little magical orange pills. I started taking Ritalin a couple of months ago. Classic story: was curious about it and a friend gave me a handful of pills to see if it would help me focus. I was instantly hooked. However, I was coming down after a few hours and Ritalin made me really edgy. A few days later a different friend gave me a 15mg XR. The next day I put in an order for 15. Schoolwork became my bitch. It wasn’t even challenging for me anymore. I was getting the grades I needed and really started to feel like getting into med-school and fulfilling my dream was going to happen.

    Without realizing it, I was pretty much instantly dependent. It wasn’t even me studying it was like the pills were obsessed with perfection and using me to grind out success. I didn’t even realize I was taking a highly addictive amphetamine salt cocktail.

    This website helped me realize how crazy this drug can be. It really woke me up and made it clear that I had better stop and quit now before my life really snowballs out of control. This is day one. Thanks Mike.

  12. Candice says:

    http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/1KbURt/www.pickchur.com/pics/focus.html/

    This link can be what its like to be on adderall. You focus too hard on one thing and forget important things around you.

    I have been prescribed adderall for 12 years. I quit last month. I can’t believe I waited this long. I am still healing but it is worth it in every way.

    Thanks for the website! I probably would be too scared to quit if I didn’t read the articles. Doctors do not even know what we are experiencing (at least mine didn’t) and it is good to hear from people who do.

  13. Robin says:

    This site is great, I feel so much better knowing that I am not all alone in this, and there are alot of other people who are going through similar scenarios with adderall.

  14. Mike says:

    @Gretta – Thanks! Glad you like the site. Good luck quitting!

    @PreMedStudent – You can already cross off the Day One Sucks milestone at least! Also, you should have too bad a struggle in front of you if you’re only a couple months in. Thankfully you realized the problem early and got out. Now just carry on like you were before you tried it, and don’t look back.

    @Candice – Cool link! I’ve added that to my General Adderall FAQ, under What does Adderall feel like? 😉

    @Robin – There are a TON of other people going through this. As you can see, you are very much not alone. And that’s just the people who comment. You should see the traffic figures. :p

  15. amber says:

    I am so desperate for help. I am not sure if anybody out there is in a similar situation. I am 24 years old, and have spent my lifetime on a stimulant every single day since i was 6 years old. I graduated college 3 years ago and have done nothing with my life except battle emotionally with self hatred, depression, and sleeping issues. I tried a few months ago to titrate down my dose 5 mg every 3 weeks….but i did not respond well. i had to go back on my meds after losing my boyfriend, and alomst being fired. i could use a freind to talk to. nobody understands me. i feel sad because i did not ask to be medicated and i was not given the chance to learn how to live off medication. please somebody help me if 🙁 anm0083@yahoo.com

  16. Mike says:

    @amber – Don’t fret! You’re not alone. I know it feels like a lonely struggle, but there’s lots of people who have been there (and are currently there).

    Now, what makes you so motivated to quit the pills? You mentioned that tapering down to 5mg wrought havoc on your relationship and job, but did it do anything good for you? When you reduce your dose severely like that, you’re going to get two things: a glimpse of the challenges you’ll face quitting, and a glimpse of the benefits (if there are any).

    You couldn’t focus and you almost lost your boyfriend, but did your sense of humor come back at all? Did you notice any positive changes? Did you feel more like “you?” I ask because if after 3 weeks you don’t notice ANY hint of positive changes, and you have no sense that such changes will come, there might not be a good enough reason for you to quit.

    The almost being fired/losing your relationship is actually pretty normal after quitting Adderall (as horrible as that is). The big question is: Given that you’re going to have to weather through severe losses like that, will it be worth it? The answer is not “yes” for everybody (although it was for me).

  17. Quit Once says:

    Hey Mike-
    I see this web site was heavily spammed over the last few days, and it didn’t take you long to clean it all up. Thanks for doing that. It is no fun wading through deep spam for any of us around here. What you do for this group of us is amazing. I especially appreciate the non-commercial nature of this site, with no advertising or spam. I would like to make a contribution with money to help keep it going. Is there an address where we could send a monetary donation to keep this site going. I would be more comfortable just sending you some money in the mail. Thanks for all you do to keep upthis website!

  18. Mike says:

    @Quit Once – Thanks! Yeah I think the anti-spam services are starting to lose ground to the spammers. WordPress, the forums, my other sites…everything is getting spammed at unusual levels this week. I’m looking into some upgrades for our forums to keep it at bay. Sorry for the clutter. If you’d like to be a moderator on the forums, please let me know and tell me what your forum username is, and I’ll upgrade you so you can kill spam and ban people. That way instead of wading through the clutter, you can hack through it with your moderator-powers like clearing brush with a machete. That would also be a HUGE help as I can’t be on it at all times. :-p

    As for money – Thanks so much for being up for contributing! I think this site will always be ad-free (despite the offers I’ve gotten from advertisers) because I’m kind of a purist. But that also means that I’m out of pocket for everything, so donations go a long way. Actually, can you try donating through the Donate page? I’m kind of technically curious to make sure it is working, since I just revamped it last week and can’t easily test it myself. Even if you just donate like $1 that helps me at least know that the new page is working.

    Thanks again!

  19. Spartanburg says:

    Mike, Thank you. This website is amazing, and you are awesome for having created it! I am 28 and [still] in the process of clawing my way back to the real me after years and years on addy. I am inspired now more than ever!

    Thanks again,

    -Becca

  20. Elizabeth says:

    Mike, I have to thank you for using your valuable knowledge to reach people who, like myself are desperately searching for a way out. You have put Adderall in it’s place and knocked it down from the pedestal that so many users have placed it on. When I found your website Adderall to me was like oxygen, and now after reading inspiring articles and posts it is no longer the crutch that it once was. I can’t tell you how freeing that is to no longer be a slave to a little orange pill. But you of course already know first hand. Thank you, thank you, a million times thank you!!!!

  21. Mike says:

    You’re welcome, Elizabeth! Thanks so much for your comment. I remember what it was like to view Adderall like oxygen, more valuable than money (because I thought it made all other things possible). One of the most interesting aspects of quitting Adderall for me has been discovering the new things that have become like oxygen to me in the place of Adderall. I’m sure you’ll know what I’m talking about soon. Anyhow, congrats again on quitting!

  22. Michael says:

    Hi mike, You mentioned in an earlier post that your “attention span still isn’t GREAT, but it’s much better than it was when [you] first quit”. Are you saying that after 4 years of being off Adderall your attention span is still a little worse than before for you had taken Adderall, or are you saying that in overcoming your ADD you still have issues with your attention span?

  23. Mike says:

    @Michael – Kind of the latter (in overcoming ADD I still have issues with attention span). I was on Adderall for seven years and it’s been 4 years since I quit. So it’s been 11 years since the “before Adderall” time. I don’t remember super well exactly what it felt like to do a homework assignment or whatever back then.

    I think my attention span today is either the same or slightly better, based on a few standards. For example: I was a B student back then, I’m an A student now. I rarely did homework back then, I always do homework now. I would get up from my desk several times an hour back then, only once every couple of hours now. I had no side creative projects back then, and have two very consuming creative projects now (this website was the first of two).

    I’m sure some of this is just growing up, but I’ve also done a lot towards figuring out how to work in ways that work for me…if that make sense.

    Don’t know if that helped at all. In general, if you were to pit me against my pre-Adderall self in a battle of attention span, I’m pretty sure I would win. But not any huge measure.

    Also, my work ethic/attention span is still very much a work in progress. I know 4 years seems like a long time, but I have completely upended and revamped my life in that time. I have many times the responsibilities today than I even had on Adderall.

    So if you hear me say something in the vein of “my attention span still isn’t quite where I’d like it to be even after 4 years” keep in mind that I work probably twice the hours now, so my daily attention span is divided across more time.

  24. Anna says:

    I have stopped taking Adderall for good this time after over 2 years on and off of it. I started taking Adderall my last semester of college, Fall 2009 and have been taking it ever since. I have been accepted to a great law school for the 2012 fall term and know I cannot be such an inconsistent person if I wish to succeed. I used Adderall because I wanted the things I don’t like to do to get done and feel fun. I started using Adderall in higher doses even more when I decided I hate my job.

    My friend and I used to abuse Adderall together and even work from home together on the drug. She is quitting with me this time. I have been off Adderall for 14 days now and definitely have my ups and downs. The severe depression and crying is over, and now I’m dealing with the good energy days and the mostly low energy days filled with my huge appetite coming back. But, the slacking method is working for me. I work from home a lot so it is easy, once I get passed the guilt. I know I can worry about my weight and job later- especially since I know that either way I’m going to law school.

    The tired feeling is back the last couple days, but last week I had 3 or 4 great days. I can’t wait until those 3 or 4 great days are my normal again. I was great before adderall, I can’t believe I thought I needed it. My apartment is clean for once and I even have my laundry done. I do MORE off the stuff even though I feel like I am slacking. Thank you for your site…it is a life saver.

  25. Candice says:

    Mike,
    Is it possible to keep up this website and write a book? If so, please do it. You know the topic well. I can’t find anyone else who can explain it like you do.
    Just an idea.

  26. Mike says:

    @Candice – Haha thanks for the support! You know, I’ve been asked to put this all in a book a few times, and I’ve thought about it, but ultimately: Who would read it? This site has a very narrow scope. It is only meant for a small, specific group of people. It’s kind of my message in a bottle. I kind of feel like books need more mass appeal than that to be worth compiling.

    I’ve could expand the topic so that a non-Adderallic could find the book useful and interesting, but becoming some kind of anti-Adderall crusader doesn’t really interest me.

    I am passionate about Adderallics and the struggle they go through when quitting, because it was my struggle too, and because I think the type of people that are drawn to Adderall are a very special, worthwhile people.

    But that’s as far as it goes for me. When it comes to writing things about Adderall that the general public could appreciate, I think I have one good, long article in me. There is one thing I wish the world at large knew about Adderall and Adderall users. And one day I’ll write that article, and you’ll see it here (though it probably won’t be a good read for you…you already know what Adderalics are like).

    I’m not totally ruling out a book, but if I did write one, I’d probably do it as an e-book written directly for Adderallics, and offer it free or nearly free through the website (with printed copy optional).

    As for writing more frequent posts like I used to; it’s probably not going to happen…but for happy reasons! For one, I’m nearly done talking about it. I’ve said most of the things I wanted to say.

    But also, I’m wonderfully busy. You know how I talk about filling your life with things you’re passionate about when you quit Adderall? Well in the past four years since quitting, I’ve done that. Nowadays, I am moving 100mph from morning to night working on projects that I grow more excited about every day. I have so much natural passion in my life now that I actually feel like I’m on Adderall a lot of the time, even though I’m not.

    Still, I have maybe 5 more major articles coming. One of which you will see very soon. The rest of the time, I will continue to curate this awesome collection of personal stories and insights we’ve amassed as best I can.

    Thanks again for your comment, and for your support. I’m really glad you like the site and found it helpful.

  27. B says:

    Hello Mike, I’m very grateful you’ve created a site like this. I’m a 22 year old college student going into my senior year. I started taking Adderal last year, hoping it would help me get through school, and achieve the grades I’ve always dreamed of. Today I cancelled my follow up appointment at the Doctor’s office to get my script continued. I will never go back. It scares me thinking I almost lost who I truely was/am. At first, Adderall is a miracle drug. Then reality kicks in that its just a drug. The negatives will begain to outweigh the benefits. I’d like to start/support a movement exposing the truth about Adderall. It’s truely wrong that doctors supply kids and other young adults with this powerful drug. If anyone is reading this or even considering taking Adderall; don’t. It’s not worth it. People can work through their difficulties with concentrating and learing natural. Once agian, thanks Mike. I’m glad there’s a place like this to share.

  28. Hope says:

    I want to hug you and your articles SO BADLY, they just might save me.

  29. Mike says:

    @Hope – *internet hug*

    Haha thanks. I’m really glad they helped!

    Mike….
    Still haven’t forgotten about you or your website.
    Miss your articles. Are you still off Adderall? I relapsed. Now I’m researching quitting again,
    Oh what a dumb fucking cycle.
    I wish you the best. And don’t worry about me,… I’ll make it there.
    Please write back. Love to hear from you.

    hi,

    I was on adderall for 12 years. I had to move to Argentina where there was no possibility of me obtaining new pills in order for me to get off the drug. Also the exchange rate from the dollar allows me to work very little and still afford to live. It’s been just about 2 months since my last pill. I think i will be okay, but am going through a difficult period. I’ve been sleeping and watching movies for 3 days and feel like i’m floating through my time here. I have extreme anxiety in the morning, so most of the time i’m sitting around waiting for it to burn off, and eventually it does. I have made a lot of mistakes on this journey, and it would probably have been beneficial to me to take this step somewhere with more comforts, but this has been my path so I accept my difficulty wholeheartedly. I discovered your website only a few weeks ago, but I have already found it extremely helpful. I’m a 32 year old woman and I’m very intelligent, very accomplished and wish i had stopped many years ago. I find comfort and hope in your words, so I wanted to take a moment to thank you. i still feel very scared and unsure of the future but at the same time have never felt so honest and hopeful.

    thanks again.

    I’m a 39 year old woman who has never taken ADD meds or anything for that matter in my life. This last Thursday, I was prescribed Adderall. It’s now been five days. Day one was 20mg, not one wink if sleep and then went to work the next day. Day 2, 20mg in the am and then another 20mg at noon.(As prescribed) I was so exhausted at the end of the day and only slept intermittently. Severe migraine since off and on, now at day 5. Still intermittent migraine coming and going with different intensity, neck and shoulder tightness, sinus pressure and pressure all over my head. Does this go away, or maybe shouldn’t even take it. Everything I read online is super scary about this stuff. Please respond.

    I posted this question before but I’m really desperate for answers. So help a sister out; I just don’t know what to do.

    I’m nineteen, and I’m totally dependant on Adderall–I’m approaching five years on the drug. But I’m in a bit of a catch-22 shindig: I know I need to get off the medicine, but I have a rough case of ADD and I’m already about to be two years behind finishing high school as it is. I’ve been kicked out of all the affordable schools in the area due to my condition (along with a clusterfuck of other maladies) and we don’t have the time required to quit Adderall nor the the money for extending my schooling…and I neeeed a high school diploma! Beyond that, I’m not a particularly talented person, plus I really do love the benefits of an education; I need to go to college. I don’t have a couple years to crash and burn. I need help to even finish my education. The consequential sacrifice (if you can even call an education a sacrifice) is that I then will have been on the drug for nine-ish/ten years. I am not myself on this stuff, and moreover, taking any medication as perforcely and as consistently for as long that is not good for your body. I mean, ADD is a relatively recent diagnosis, thus none of the remedial prescriptions’ long-term effects can confidently be prophesied.

    Nevertheless, I still was prescribed Addie for a reason. I nearly failed out of school my freshman year because I couldn’t keep up with the course load. I’m talking 9th grade here, in a public school. So even if I do quit, where does that leave me in terms of a degree or more importantly, a career!? Attention Deficit is mere one liquor in the cocktail psych disorders from which I suffer, thus I do need help of whatever sort to live a
    semi-successful life. To dumb it down, I absolutely cannot focus without it, and that ensuing failure may tip the domino for my anxiety disorder, my depression, and a couple others.
    I know I need to talk to some professionals however the few I know of are so pro-medication, they don’t really listen to me. They simply dismiss my plight and tell me to try other drugs, yet I feel like ADD drugs of any kind will not only take more of the time that I do not have, but then leave me on a similar cliff! I’ve been on so many before and it just took so much out of me both mentally and physically; I hated life. Adderall was the only stuff that seemed to help.

    Now I’m just so lost and so helpless as to where I could turn next, and my motivation to fail that much longer at graduating is really depleting. I need solutions.

    HI Mike, this site ROCKS. My husband is on day 5 of quitting after 19 years. It’s going to be an uphill battle which is why I’m bound and determined to support him – I’ve been reading your site most of the day. I see the two supplements, iron and zinc on your ‘store’, but notice there is no L-Tyrosine that you suggest. I’ve also seen that you should research this supplement before taking. Any reason you don’t list it? Do you recommend getting this more from food? I’m a big believer in the right food = medicine. And maybe taking L-Tyrosine supplements would slow down your natural ability to produce dopamine.

    Thank you!

    Hi! My name is John, and I am a web expert from Atlanta. I find that a lot of business owners unfortunately still do not understand the importance of a optimized website and how it can either help your business grow quickly or become over powered by competitors websites and online presence.

    Your website is what you use to market your services and products, it should be your best sales person. I see most businesses websites (while they may look nice) are lacking in vital areas such as conversion funnels, content that converts as well as trust icons/badges. These are very simple modifications and edits to make to a site but I still see a lot of sites ignoring these crucial elements.

    I am offering a free consultation where I can provide you a discuss with you solutions and ways to fix these issues on your site and also some ideas I have for some designs that will be more effective. I provide this consultation free of cost and with no obligation to use or purchase my services. I am always happy to help inform other business owners about what is working with websites today.
