The anesthetic effect, and any possible analgesic you may have been prescribed post-operation, have more to do with your problem than anything else.

A requisite for ADD is that the symptoms exist before the age of 7. I was diagnosed at 18, but I still remember having a hellish experience concentrating each day when I was 6 on my studies.

All doctors follow the same book, DSM-IV, which spells this out. And fatigue and AD/HD are separate matters, so I would be hesitant to draw too many coorelations.

In my case, I'm an inattentive subtype of AD/HD, and also have social anxiety disorder. Adderall makes my social anxiety worse. It never "calms" me. "Calm" is not a scientific word-- it's a word docs use to tell people things so they can understand them. It's a practice called "explanatory fiction"-- saves them time talking to patients. Like instead of saying they're going to use supersonic surgery, they'll call it "laser surgery" even if it's not. Otherwise they'd have to explain what supersonic means!
