I just joined this group and haven't had a chance to read thru everything but I need to vent. I have ADD and my husband and I have so many issues. This weekend we were in a huge fight because I am out of medicine and we really can't afford the $200 to get a refill right now. I am a wreck without it.
I was told that a stupid pill can't make me "get it together". He's tired of the excuses about being out of medicine. He said I must be addicted to the pills and I am turning into a pill head.
I am so aggravated with myself. I seem like I walk in circles and everything falls apart when I don't take my medicine. We run two businesses - I can't afford to be like this.
I can't even get to a point with this message
I don't know what I am trying to say or ask. I guess I just need to know if I am crazy or not. I am hurt, upset and aggravated. I know what needs to be done I just can't get it done. Everything from invoicing customers to cleaning my house. I feel like I am losing it View Thread
I take Concerta 54mg (or 52mg - whatever the dose is in that range). It seems when I first take it after not taking it for a little while I get goofy side affects. My worst one is the headache - I get a headache the day I take it if I don't remember to take advil with it and then the hangover headache the next day. The doctor says it really isn't a side affect that the medicine should cause but it happens every time so I am convinced it is the medicine. I haven't really be nauseated but sometimes I do get light-headed.View Thread
