- Whats a good cheap health insurance for a college student needing ADD medicine with a min wage job?
- Q: Like I said I only have a min wage job, and I completely support myself. I desperately need ADD meds, but I have NO health insurance. I need to be able to afford the health insurance too. I am a college student. I make about 300 every two weeks. any suggestions on what I should do?
- A: There is no such thing as a good and cheap health insurance policy. With health insurance you get what you pay for. Also, with ADD you may have trouble finding a company that will accept you. Some companies will accept if you are on one med and the ADD is controlled. Most will decline or rider the ADD or will increase the premium if you are taking more than one med. If you have any other pre-existing conditions it will be even harder to find a policy.You should first check with the school. Most colleges have a student plan available for a reasonable premium. If that doesn't work find a local agent that works with all the major companies in your area. The agent can find the plans that will accept you if there are any. There is no extra charge using an agent.You should also check your states Medicaid website to see if you qualify for Medicaid.
- How does ADD medicine make you feel? Like a zombie, or have more energy?
- Q: I haven't been diagnosed with ADD yet, but my counselor gave me a worksheet to feel out and will talk to a physician. I filled the worksheet out, and it's not looking good. I'm a little worried if I get put on medicine for it. I already feel zombie-ish throughout the day, and have had people say I act emotionalless. I don't want to take medicine (even if I need it) if it's going to make it worse. I have heard that ADD medicine will take the opposite affect on you. Like if you're non-energetic, it will give you more energy, or if you're hyper, it will mellow you out a bit. Is that true? What are some of your experiences with it?BTW, I'm 27. I don't know if they give adults the same type of medicine they do children.
- A: I have been on many forms of ADD meds, as has my husband. Some make me feel sloggy and some make me feel energetic, almost hyper. It really depends on your biochemistry and the way it reacts to meds. There are very few predictors as to how a drug is going to interact with your system, which is why you need to be patient throughout this process because the first meds, maybe even the second or third meds might not do the trick. Trust me: My husband and I have been on the same ADD meds as each other at the same time, and for one of us it was perfect and the other person couldn't stand being in his own skin!Be patient. My husband has been on a dozen different drugs in the last twenty years. Some of them never worked. Most of them were almost-but-not-quite there. Most recently, after years upon years of one drug that really made a huge difference with him, he felt that he was a little more reved up than he would prefer...so we went to the psychopharmacologist and he suggested a new drug that is out on the market, the same thing he was taking in purified form but a smaller dosage...and it is the best thing yet! Your body and needs will evolve and luckilly they are developing more and better ADD meds all the time!I have even been warned that if get pregnant and have a baby, once the baby is born my old drugs may not work for me any more!So have faith, and if you think things are not working out with your regular doctor, seek out a Psychopharmacologist who specializes in ADD.
- I'm getting tested for ADD medicine and they have to test my brain will THC or and damage of it show up?
- Q: i've giving blood for testing and i heard about 2 things, doctor-patient confidential talking about drugs and how long it stays in your blood. But i'm getting tested to see if i will have seizures in the furtue. Idont know what kind of test they do for that but will THC show up on it and would they tell my parents, if my parents did not mention it?
- A: It really depends how old you are if the doctor is allowed to tell your parents. I know that THC stays in urine for up to 30 days. I believe it is in testable levels in blood for the same amount of time. The doctor is only testing for drug interactions. He probably won't let your parents know about your smoking if it isn't relevant.
