I have been in the Army for a long time. In 2003, i was diagnosed with adult ADD and prescribe Concerta. In short, my career did a 180 and the Army became a great life for me. But your inability to adjust to military standards and the lifestyle may not be caused by ADD. You need to get a comprehensive assessment by an independent professional. If you were diagnosed and not given medication to take daily for the rest of your life. Then you are probably not ADD. Because if you are and you take the medicine, you become very less confrontational, less compulsive, more able to complete your task, get along with others and live like normal people. My suggestion is get a second opinion.View Thread
