I have been experiencing symptoms of not necessarily ADHD, but more of just ADD for about 5 years, I am currently 16 and in college and this is the portion of my life when I need the most focus possible. One of my roommates has been diagnosed with ADD for quite some time, and he is prescribed 70 Mg Vyvanse. I told him about my problems, and even though I know it is illegal, he gave me one of his pills and told me to take it and see how I react. I took it and it was the best I have done in class, since I can remember. I was able to pay attention through all of my lectures and take very good notes, while not getting distracted or bored. So, I wanted to know who I should go to either my family doctor, or the psychiatrist in town to tell them about my symptoms. As well as telling the doctor about my problems, I wanted to know if there are any suggestions on ways to tell my mom about my issues without her thinking I just want to score some pills, because she has been non-stop watching the news and there is all this news about teenagers finding new pills to abuse, because in the past when I have talked to her about my anxiety she kind of thought that is what I was trying to do since I have had some problems with marijuana in the past. I also wanted to know if it is a good idea to tell the doctor about my experience with the 70 Mg Vyvanse and how it made me feel the best I have felt in a while. Also, I was wondering if it is abnormal for the Vyvanse to help with anxiety, because I usually have a lot of anxiety in public situations, along with some mild panic attacks (have not seen a doctor about this issue either), but when I was on the Vyvanse I was outgoing and it seemed as if I wanted to talk to as many people as possible. Any responses would be appreciated. I am just at a stand still and am wondering what to do.
