I took meds once several years ago for depression, and after completing the first script, did not renew. I believe I am ADD now under self diagnoses, and started looking into what meds might do for me. Then I took a look at my life situation. I have a job that my ADD does not negatively effect, yet. My marriage is good. Life is good. So, I thought, why would I medicate for a condition that is there simply because it’s there? ADD untreated won’t lead to any long-term health defects that I know of. The medication might. So, I’m going to try to go without until I see a real need for it.
