CADDAC – Canadian ADHD Advocacy

This week, the Centre for ADD/ADHD Advocacy Canada is promoting an awareness campaign for ADD and ADHD in Canada.

The goal is to increase awareness of ADD and ADHD in Canada, and help to advocate for appropriate services.

In most Canadian provinces, the school boards do not recognize ADD/ADHD as a disorder which will allow for special educational services or educational acommodations. To get these, a student must meet criteria for a learning disability, or a behavior disorder.

  1. I have tried Vyvance. It is but one of the main amphetamine salts that has its levels raised in the blood rather than the usual method of exteding the release of the drug. I would sau for the month that I tried it it was not bad. I have found that 1 mg of Clonazepam, or ie, klonapin, and 30 mgs of the non extended version of adderall works the best. I would say that one sose works about 5 hours with no side effects. I would suggest 2 mgs of klonapin 4 hours past the last dose of adderall and another dose before bed. I have tried many things and I will stick with the afore mentioned. 60 mgs of adderall and 2 mgs of klonipin is supreme but the maximum dose of adderal is 30 2 times a day. I have learned to moderate myself to this sublevel dosing. Adderal is a dopamine booster and I have found that all medication clasified as antipsychotics which block the uptake of dopamine is just poison. Klonapin calms the mind just fine. I am not speaking of those dregs of society who foam at the mouth to devistat anather, not that that is the defining facter for your average psychopath. Just be careful my friends and only you know how these drugs are effecting you so don’t hesitate to change meds or get another dotor. Psychiatrists are in a catagory within themselves, imagining themselves god like, prescribing thing without a shred of sientific proof to back up thier reasons. Can you see my contemp for the profession?

  2. there reallty needs to be the hightened criteria for children to be labeled and treated for ADD. IT has become an epidemic for a quick diagnosis, without doing the proper testing and taking the time to see if the childs environment is a key to their behavior
