We thought that since he was going through puberty & dealing with ADHD that he was just having a rough time dealing with the chemistry changing in his body. As time went on he became more aggressive threatening to stab his father with a butcher knife & constantl ... Show Full Comment

    I started adderall in mid-2013. I felt I couldn't function w/out it even though my jaws were clenched more often than not. A few weeks ago I ended up in the ER with a blood pressure way too high and heart palpitations. The psychiatrist who prescribed this med for me had given me a 6 to 8 question survey for ADHD. THAT was the extent of her diagnosis. Never asked how my BP was or what other med ... Show Full Comment
