ADHD in Women
Aneurysm & Meds
Ok, we women are the knowers of everything, right? Does anyone have an answer for this one…
Just over a year ago, I had a brain aneurysm. That sounds so much scarier than it actually was! It wasn’t very big, it didn’t burst, they fixed it quickly and it healed perfectly! BUT, I was just diagnosed with ADHD a couple weeks ago. So I need to try to figure out med options. (yes, I do know that the doctor should be the one to figure out the options, but to be totally frank, it takes forever to get an appointment and I saw my GP today and she had no idea. I like to show up armed with info.) I’m pretty sure stimulants will be out, but not totally sure. For a little more background info, I’m 39 and on Wellbutrin for depression, but don’t find it takes care of my ADHD symptoms.
Does anyone know anyone in a similar situation? What meds are they using? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
