    We tend to crave empty carbs when we are stressed.

    Over the last year, while we were trying to make this website go, and get it up and running I ate more junk food than I have in years. The excuse was that we were so busy we didn’t have time to eat well.

    Like it took longer to say Salad than Hamburger with Onion Rings.

    Rick, so some would argue that ADD’ers are in a constant state of stress, hence always craving empty carbs?

    I think that for me, it has to do with my meds. I am taking 10mg spansules of Dex and am not hungry at all during the day, until dinnertime or later. In the evening I could just eat and eat and eat. And lately have been having a drink or two to relax. I can’t help but wonder if it’s the meds wearing off that are causing it.

    Larynxa, I haven’t really looked that hard but haven’t found many contraindications about drinking while on ADD meds. Can you fill me in on what some of the side effects or reasons I may not want to drink are?
