If your family dr was giving you your ADHD medicine

If your family dr was giving you your ADHD medicine but wanted you to eventually find a psychiatrist and u found one and they change your medicine up and you have a reaction to it and can’t take it, you are no longer going to see the psychiatrist so you ask your family dr to put u back on the medicine that he had you on bit he says he can’t until 30 days bc of the other medicine from the psychiatrist which I threw away bc I had such a bad reaction to it and I need to get back on my regular medication bc I can’t work or function without it. But my family dr is saying I will have to wait 2.5 more weeks before I can get back on my meds. I can’t help they I had a bad reaction to that medication but that should not keep me from getting back on the meds that work so that I can feel normal

I found your email online. My whole life I ve been struggling with attention issues. It has caused me to lost jobs in the pass. I have issues when it comes to details. I often forget or procrastinate tasks. My focus has been terrible. I often find myself wanting to stand up for no reason or leave a room just to leave it. I always felt this was normal until a family member pointed this out to me. I ve never tried medications for ADHD or ADD but I ve been reading that medicines like adderal help with this issue. I m open to try this and get help but only if it is my last resort. I want to feel normal when faced with tasks. -Louise

My 13 year old son is on 40 mg Focalin that I give him between 6:30 and 7 AM. It doesn t seem to be lasting more than about 5 or 6 hours. He has gym class around 11:30 AM and after that, it seems the medication is gone. He is a very good athlete and plays sports very hard. After gym, his grades drop like a rock. What effect does gym class and how much he s eating have to do with how long the drug is effective? Sometimes he races out the door with no breakfast and that seems to diminish the effect of the medicine, too. What can you tell me about this situation?
