    For the undiagnosed adhd person the self-medication is usually for 2 things: 1) the actual ADHD (meth, cocaine, speed) and 2) the constant restlessness & anxiety associated with untreated adhd (alcohol, Xanax, weed). I completely abused alcohol & drugs for 20 years until diagnosed ADHD & GAD at 40 years old. The Dex turns off the ‘constant search’ and turns off my addictions.

    The best thing an ADHDer can do is be aware of how annoying they can be to the people around them. It takes practice… That is part of a “successful ADDer” to me.

    Coffee gives me a buzz but actually aggravates my ADHD symptoms. I get more fidgety, scratchy, restless etc.. I found information online about adhd meds not being as effective when combined with coffee. So I tried taking my dex with and without coffee as an experiment. For me Dex works noticeably better on its own. I just feel clearer and not restless & scratchy. Check this: http://www.addforums.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-15930.html. =] (ps: I know dex isn’t concerta but they are both adhd stims.)
