Feeling of ADD, have difficulty in reading, focusing and memorizing. How can I recover?

Hi Dr. I m 39Yrs manager in a s/w company. I think i have severe ADD. I have sufferred seriously in terms of embarrsements on failing on almost every occassions where ever i needed to learn something or remind and explain something. There are many affects in personality due to this.. list is endless... i have been suviving by trying hard, but want to live healthy and respectfully for atleast a brief period in my life where what ever i plan i should be able to do esp which invloves reading and being able to recollect it. I have observed it from the age of 14. AT the age of around 28-29 when i was newly married i met a Dr in NIMHANSE bangalore and took prodep for a month or so considering it OCD . Not sure if it was effect of medicine, or psycholigical or becasue i was jobless and had no distractions or becasue i was doing hour long pooja in the morning - but during that time my problem of focus was solved and i was reading few hundred pages in one sittng everynight and my face showed grace and confidence (despite being jobless at that time). but its again back to same and i find it very hard to read/focus/learn and remember - it spoils almost everything for me as in my job that is what needed 95% times. help me, i want that healthy condition for 1-2 years and i m sure i will do so much to be happy forever. thx, Ramit

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Thanks for your query. You need to know that attention deficit disorder always has its onset during adolescence and on many occasions also associated with hyperactivity symptoms. Poor concentration might be feature of other disorders like depressive disorder and anxiety disorders. It may also be due to plain lack of interest in what is being done or specific learning disability. Hence, i suggest you undergo a thorough psychiatric evaluation for the above said disorders following which appropriate psychotropic medication or psychotherapy can be initiated. Hope you found the information useful.
