Alright so, I was "diagnosed" as a very hyper active child around 1997 or so, I also think I was diagnosed with A.D.D since they gave me pills to control my inability to pay attention. I was always sad when I took them and my mom told me I was crying all the time. I barely remember any of this because I didn't really care at the time, but she told me it could have been side effects from the medicine, so she got me off the medicine. I've been off it for about...8 maybe 9 years, do you guys think its a good time to get back on it?

EDIT: I want your opinions, because I still can't pay attention, I can barely concentrate even on things I like, so I wanted to know.

well that all depends on how you coped without it

I try to be, but I'm not a very clean player so it doesn't really help.

i think you should try alternatives before you go straight to meds. what they give to help you deal with a.d.d. and whatnot usually has the side-effects of making you sad or depressed, on top of other things. i, obviously, don't know you personally, but maybe try watching your eating and sleeping habits. make sure you're on a normal sleeping schedule and cut down on soda and excessive sugar and eat healthily. again, i don't know what your habits are now, and i'm no doctor, but i'd be wary to just jump right back on medication.

I eat home cooked meals every day, I dont eat sweets very much anymore, I dont drink soda. I do sleep as many hours as I can every day, so I dont know if improving it could help me. I just want to know everyone's opinions before I went to my mom about talking to my doctor about it.

ah, well good for you... home cooking is always the best. i'd suggest then talking to a doctor. not asking him to put you on anything, but just talk to them and see what their professional opinion is of the situation. no one i know who was put on meds for a.d.d. ever really enjoyed them or had a pleasant reaction to them which is why i suggest avoiding them, but if it'll make it better for you, it's probably worth a shot

Alright fair enough, I'll ask my mom to take me to my doctor tomorrow or something.
