Your Questions About Adhd Cures Without Drugs

Charles asks…

Permantly Curing mental illnesses through surgery!?

I would like to say someday as always we will find a way in the future to cure what some would consider worse than cancer! With me having A.D.D and having to take adderall, which raises anxiety levels and causes need for counteractive drugs for that as well as more drugs because of the inability to sleep it causes I will say that there is no sought for a cure which is not further from the truth!
Social Security pays thousands of dollars a year to victims that suffer what some would consider an evolutionary defect in other words “Survival of the fittest”. Victims understand and suffer greatly the effects in has in their life. They learn they cannot join the military, they will not be able to have a job out of high school because the cost of the medications make individuals unable to afford working at McDonalds as a first job or Wendy’s let along go to College..Even learning they must take “speed” causing them sometimes anxiety and other problems to emerge all their lives which Doctors and LPN’s end up adding to the medication they take already because of it! If we pick out ADHD with a diagnosis of a mood disorder perhaps.. In ADHD there are 3 regions of the brain thought to be effected in the mesolimbic reward pathway which consists of 4 potential spots in the brain that become effected! The nucleus accumbens, amygdala, hippocampus, and medial prefrontal cortex! Off the bat we know the medial prefrontal cortex is the number hotspot in A.D.D but we know that there is nothing wrong with the ability of those areas because medications can make them respond nearly unnoticable at times. But the question to adding amphetmaine salts to stimulate it through blood flow, we must ask ourselves WHY are they recieving little levels of uptake inhibitors….Why is the body not opening in sufficient quantities!
In laymens terms,A.D.D sufferers eat the same foods as everyone normal does having without diagnosis! So why is the brain not intaking the dosage it needs? It should be a simple fix! Many people suggest that it is a genetic predisposition, however I would argue yes and no! I believe if the problem is corrected somehow by surgical means in the future it would correct genetic predisposition, because that individual would be recieving chemicals normally if successful! Therefore if normality could ever be a result and success of an operation in the future then my hypthesis would be it would correct problems!
Please I want your thoughts…Tell me any thoughts you have please and favor your possibilities to this!
I understand and I believe this to be a possibility, but we need to cure people and not drug them. Not let them be individuals that suffer all their natural life because of our inability to want to find a cure!
Is it not natural or normal to want to live a normal life and have options everyone else has? You look finding a cure up online for mental disorders and you find nothing but medications keeping them sound..Noone crys find a cure or surgical cure…if someone is deemed mentally unfit they see them as a burden to the world and only needing a quick fix! The only things amphetamines do is puts tape on a leaking pipe they still suffer and are made to take therapy as well!

Surgery is already used to treat epilepsy, see the reference. Look at each type of surgery and see its other applications. Many experts believe ADHD is overdiagnosed and overmedicated.

Robert asks…

Hey guys, I Need advice on adderall xr and xanax xr combinations.. PLZ!!!?

First of all before i get to my question,

Id like to add why I myself use these meds in the first place and maybe my vew will help others get more knowledgeable : )
As most of us know, I in this case and many others with similar disorders are screwed unless they get too the psychological/emotional root of the problem and work on themselves towards complete recovery through cognitive therapy.. keep in mind LONG TERM*

But as of now, I and I’m sure many others don’t have the time or the resources to get to the correct therapy and truly assess the roots of problem through releasing their repressed emotions. At this point, I can easily say that alot of us only have the ability to numb the effects chemically and make the best of it while it lasts and while they still can.(insurance or buying for the drugs)

We all know success in any environment requires self assertiveness, but I think that what too many people fail to understand the difficulties involved in getting through such disorders without aid. Many times this is impossible without short term use of medication to jump start their success and hopefully after that get the true cure though harmless drug free cognitive therapy, they wont need the meds ever again.

I think people really need to become more understanding and educated about why people with mental disorders such as mine (or worse) would resort to destroying their brain chemistry’s and bodies by using such dangerous med’s which are pretty much more or less illegal street drugs such as cocaine(adderall) and pretty much prescription alcohol(xanax). Only an idiot would ingest and sooner or later abuse these poisons if they didnt have any medical basis for the drug. It feels so great to live a normal life, Disordered people take them to simply function like normal people and to live up to their true potentials. Its a trade off. disordered and debilitating unproductive natural life or chemically induced life of productivity with risks of lifelong health consequences and addiction.

BTW, sorry I went a bit off topic… however im sure it was worth the reading either way xD

Hey, I’m experimenting on prescription medication for my ADHD combined type coexisting with an anxiety disorder called social phobia(fear of social interaction with others for no logical reason, in response the body triggers its fight or flight defence mechanism and thinks your being attacked. so it prepares you for self defence and attack), and deficits with verbal expression but above average and possibly a generalized anxiety disorder as well. I was prescribed a one month supply of Generic Adderall IR at first and my doc let me experiment up to 40mg.

I have a 60 day supply of Adderall XR(10mg) and 30 day supply of Adderall IR (10mg), and 30 day supply of recently prescribed Xanax XR(1mg). I have the adderall in my closet for over half a year and finished only half of the XR and used only 10 IR pills. So that says something…

I didn’t like IR because I didn’t like the sudden pick me up, it felt very unnatural and and that isnt the reason I take these meds

So he switched me too Adderall XR(brand) which is supposedly smoother and better for the crash when the med wears off

He also prescribed me Xanax XR(brand)(30 x 1mg) to try for my social anxiety.

The adderall gives me high blood pressure, high pulse, and a form of anxiety(it improves my social anxiety by a little and either way i can still talk to people normally, i just feel very tense and stiff, I become disrespectful to others because I interrupt and blurt what others would say before they finish their points, and sometimes paranoid) ive been commented… , it was very hard to urinate and sometimes it was impossible until an hour or so later (this was on 30mg Adderal XR), and muscle tension(crack my knuckles very very often), jitters at first, very dry dry mouth, some appetite loss, extremely cold hands and feet, and finally i sometimes I get motor ticks on my thighs, arms, and feet.

I’d like too reduce/eliminate all or at least majority of the overstimulation of the bodies nervous system and organs caused by the stimulant medication Adderall; by taking it in conjunction with Xanax to level out the effects and hopefully greatly minimize the possible long term heart, blood pressure/circulation problems, and all other problems associated with the use of Adderall or any other strong stimulant. Id like to feel the benefits of the adderall without the physical stimulation and anxiety it manifests.

I was thinking adderall XR(brand) 70mg(7*10mg pills)(which really is 35mg at first then 35 more later) with 2mg of Xanax XR(brand).

I want too know if I chose too much Xanax or too much of the adderall..

Does anyone have any experience with this? Anyone try the same thing? Can anyone recommend me a good combination? Any better medication combinations? Do you think a Beta-Blocker like Inderall would be a good idea as opposed too Xanax X

barry jennings answers:

Wow, that was a really long story. I disagree with your premise. I don’t think that Adderall numbs you, I think it actually addresses the Dopamine imbalance in your brain that results in ADHD. I also think that 2 mg of Xanex is a lot. Inderall might be a very good idea if you need that much Xanex.

Have you considered asking your dr for guidance, instead of the Y!A community?
