Does any doctor in Kingwood prescribe Vyvanse for adults? Dr. Lugo does not and Kingwood Psychiatry does not. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

There is a reason why they don't. Make sure and do your research on that drug! :)

When you see all the side effects that some drugs have, you wonder how they get anyone to take them. I tell my doctor I don't want anything unless it has been around for a long, long time. I know there are exceptions, but drugs are scary. After reading the side effects of a drug my daughters doctor wanted her to take, the doctor told me that if only one person in the testing has the problem they have to list it. We have a friend that just started working for a drug company. She said one person got scratched by a cat while on a test drug and the side effects list cat scratches.

i was a C/D student in high school, when i hit college i was prescribed. I made straight A's....trust me when i tell you it works.

I just decided to go back to school for furthering my education. So i am wanting to get back on it. 

captureit11 --- 5 years ago -

ive taken it before. Im good :)

Go back to your college doctor? My son in law takes ADHD meds. Yes, they do work for school.

ADD and ADHD are used interchangeably. Though the preferred diagnosis is AD/HD, there are some patients that do not display the H-hyperactivity symptoms. In order to be diagnosed with ADHD, you first have to be diagnosed with ADD.

My daughter had a friend who had the same thing happen to her. She started taking it her junior year. It was amazing. She never acted like you imagine kids wthl ADD acting. I guess we all have this preconceived idea. Of course, when the boys in my classes got out of hand, the teacher just sent them down to the principal. That busting they got, straightened them up for a good three or four months.

Riiiight?
When I started to perform badly in school, my mom bought a stack of workbooks, moved my desk to that it faced a wall, and made me sit there doing page after page for 45 mins after school each day until my next test score improved. That may have not taught me anything but how to focus.

ADD is definitely real. The culture of "multitasking" and being constantly connected, has completely fostered that tendency if you even slightly leaned that way.

In kids we saw it less in the old days, because they were more active and had less distractions. They had more outlets to use up that energy. Nowadays with less recess, planned play dates and constant electronics, we're reaping what we've sown. 

sheddy --- 5 years ago -

I agree with that. When I think back at elementary school, I don't remember the classes, but I do remember recess and PE. We played outside all the time and were always going somewhere on our bikes. We lived in a small town and kids roamed every where. Parents these days are afraid if their kids get out of their sight.

Maybe if ADD had existed back then I would have been the kid with that label. For me, academics were never the issue, they were always easy and boring. The issue that kept me under heavy scrutiny was behavior. I just couldn't stay still, even to this day. 

TinktheSprite --- 5 years ago -

I always have said I am "Undiagnosed ADD and live to tell about it." I still have my moments. But definitely no hyperactivity. I was active but not hyper. No one went to the doctor back then unless your eyeball was hanging out of your head, let alone to see a psychologist!

Exactly. But somehow the teachers knew how to handle each kid on an individual basis.

No. They didn't. The kid was either thrown out of class, beaten, or put with the mentally handicapped. Everyone else didn't have to deal with them, but the kids with the problem got screwed. 

TinktheSprite --- 5 years ago -

ADD becomes a behavior problem because the issue isn't addressed either with medication or behavior modification.
And yes, the illness can be exacerbated or reduced depending on the understanding by teachers, parents, and individuals who are faced with the situation.

PBS did a fabulous program on the brain. The doctors said that contrary to what we do now in life now with multitasking at work and play even, the brain is NOT set up to do more than one thing well at a time. I believe it. It's chaotic, but it is amazing what we do that is counter productive to Mother Nature.

Probably why the word "mindful" is so trendy right now. Many people are experiencing the world stressed and frenzied, right on the verge of fight or flight. As soon as the have a moment of down time, they fill it with pills or alcohol or disengage from the world into their devices.
