>I had all the symptoms of ADD but I do not have ADD. It helped with the ADD symptoms and didn't give me anxiety, and I am very prone to anxiety disorders. It helped get me through a difficult time. But because I was prescribed a stimulant does not mean that I had ADD.

Violette, what is ADD except a collection of symptoms?
My psych says that he will prescribe it if he really thinks it will help (create a diagnosis) and that is in Australia where the norms about Dex are different.
Then he says 'Who doesn't concentrate better after Dexedrine?'
I just say that I'd like to have some in the back cupboard for the 1001 awful events I have to face, including, from time to time, getting up.
And we leave it at that.
I feel so in awe of his frankness and so grateful for it that I don't like to trouble him further.
