HI there,

I just wanted to let you know that about 1 1/2 years ago I was diagnosed with ADD. I am very doubtful that I have it. I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome , Fibro and many, many more illnesses. The doc that did the testing for ADD recommended Ritalin. It has not helped me focus any better as a matter of fact I have more memory issues than I did before. However it has given me more energy, which I NEVER thought I would have back. I wonder if maybe the theory may be that if you have more energy you will move more and maybe decrease your pain. The fact that the Ritalin doesn't help me focus just really convinces me that I do not have ADD. I really believe that "Fibro Fog" and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome present to Neuropsych like ADD, or they just do not believe that they exist but they feel a need to label a person with something.

Good luck!!!

You can never say never but I doubt it. Adderall is not prescribed for any kind of pain. I don't think there has even been any research on it.
