I think I have ADD or AD/HD because I can never stay still I'm always shaking my feet ROCKING (alot) or make some type of motion I also have alot of racing thoughts. However I forget alot of things and I'm only 17! I want to talk to my doctor about it but I don't want to be put on anything that will make sleep all the time.
The first medication I would recommend would be Strattera. It's a non controlled substance that works for some but not all people. The second set of drugs I would recommend would be the stimulants such as Adderall, Contcera or Ridalin. I'm personally on Adderall and it works great! None of these drugs will make you sleepy, In fact they do the opposite, they wake you up do to the fact that they're stimulants. Stimulants can be hard on your heart if your not careful. They can also become addictive (This can be avoided if taken as directed and you talk to you doctor about any side effects you are experiencing.) Make sure to talk to your doctor about all the options that are available and he/she might have some more suggestions. Please let me know if this helps. You can always add me as a friend and send me a private message if you would like. Happy Holidays!
