  Dear Dr. Baughman, I was diagnosed with ADHD at age 53 after many years of
treatment that never alleviated symptoms of restlessness, inability to sit
for long, moving from one task to another without finishing, motivation
challenges, on and on and on.  Many of these question mark puzzle pieces
came together after I was put on Adderall and Wellbutrin SR. I am now able
to control these symptoms most of the time

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
your perception, with no
objective physical-chemical abnormality, prior to rx. there is no disease] .

I am able to sit for long periods at a time to make a cross stitch quilt top
for my first grandson which is almost complete. I appreciate your skepticism
and challenge to controversial studies, but I believe there are enough
adults now being diagnosed

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
nor does the number, it is at 6 million or more,
constitute proof of presence of a physical or chemical abnormality. Doctors
are trained to know the difference and to square with their patients as to
the presence or absence of abnormality]

that show that this diagnosis
has been around probably forever without being diagnosed correctly.  I
believe what has happened is a godsend in my life.  Thank you  for
considering my input. M       E
