my husband was recently diagnosed as having adult add/adhd and was given aderall. he loves the medication and claims it makes a massive difference. i beleive taking the medication is an escape and/or an easy quick fix. i beleive he was misdiagnosed, and what he really needs is some good counseling. what are you opinions on an adult taking this medication? his main problem is that he doesn't manage to carry through on his plans, intentions and ends up just leaving things for the last minute and then doing it rushy, and not as he would have liked it. is this medication addictive, and what are the side effects. (he's taking it for a few months already). thank you for your time and help.

I think you can also direct your question to dr. price. In my opinion, the best results are usually achieved by a combination of meds and therapy. If he is doing better on the meds, it is probably not an "escape".
