    Seriously. ENFP with AD(H)D = unbearable. Probably for them. But I was speaking for everyone else around the ENFP.
    Well, I don't know about all that!

    I am ENFP and ADHD my friends like me. I was screened by a specialist and mine is bad enough for ritalin. It doesn't bother me to take it. It doesnt do too much for the hyper but it really helps cut down on mind clutter!

    You're on ritalin?

    What is this mind clutter it cuts out?

    I was prescribed it but refused to take it.

    Concerta is really slick stuff, not spikey like Ritalin. Both are methylphenidate. Not that I've ever taken either, for the record.

    (This appears to be several doses of 5mg Ritalin vs. one dose of Concerta, which is extended release.)

    I love Ritalin and Ritalin-equivalent drugs... they're best taken when not afflicted with ADD/ADHD...

    I think, you confuse with amphetamines.

    ADHD, not severe but not mild either.
    I'm currently on Concerta, and have been for a bit over 2 years, I tried adderall when I was 12, and refused to try anything else for another few years, cause Adderall sucked. I don't want to stay on meds for a really long time, but I suspect I'll have to until I finish high school, and perhaps college. It depends. I can focus reasonably well as long as I'm allowed to move around as much as I want and the subject is interesting. When I was little, even before I got diagnosed (I had to go through a long evaluation which also found very mild dyslexia before I was considered ADHD), I could never sit down for long, and me teachers hated it, because I wanted to walk around the room, and they wanted to teach math.

    Now, when I forget to take my meds (which happens periodically), I drink coffee and I ask my teachers to understand that I may be a bit hyperactive and need more time on tests and stuff. I've actually taken whole tests while standing up instead of sitting, which my teachers are understanding about, and standing actually works fairly well. There are still issues with homework when I'm not on meds though.

    Oh, and most ADHD meds are stimulants, same as caffeine. Something like coffee will cause similar effects to meds, although they are milder and less precise (a doctor who I see who specializes is ADHD actually told me that when I had been refusing to try any meds). So, for very mild ADHD or ADD, coffee would probably suffice, and for cases that don't involve homework it also works. Thus, my plan as an adult: become a coffee addict and ditch the meds ^.^

    This man knows what he is talking about. ADD does not exist. Why is it that Europes population has significantly less cases of ADD then the US. Lol I just looked up and saw what he wrote...ignore past sentence.
