ritalin at age 7
I was diagnose with adhd at the age of 7. I started taking ritalin at the age of 7. I quit taking that at age 15, then was on concerta and then quit that and now I'm 26 and I'm on adderall. It helps me concentrate at work and at home. I talked to my psychiatrist and told her I needed to be on something to concentrate and she put me on adderall xr. It helps me so much. I'm also on prozac and topamax. And they all have side effects that are the same. Loss of appetite, dry mouth. But I can deal with them to be able to concentrate, to control my depression and for my migraines. If you take your medicine as directed by your doctor, you shouldn't get addicted. I have never been addicted to any medicine that I have had to be put on due to adhd,bi-polar,depression. If your getting addicted your doing something wrong.
