A.D.D. is the complete opposite of ADHD and not only kids have this disability. Many individuals with brain injuries have disabilities that are life long, not something that can go away. This is why some adults still have ADD or ADHD their life, a brain cannot heal itself if it's injured to some extent. I care for someone who has a traumatic brain injury, which resulted in many different deficits and never ending disabilities in her life. She injured 3 of her brain lobes, along with a severe brain shearing and had to even have some blood drained from her brain from the bruising. She lost her peripheral vision, many broken bones and internal injuries, along with deficits affecting her even more today; 10 years later. She has had and will continue to have chronic insomnia and Attention Deficit Disorder. She cannot get the right A.D.D. prescription because of her insomnia but the one Adderral DR 30mg truly helped her with even going to college. She couldn't get her degree because of how chronic her insomnia was and arthritis 3 times her age was holding her back. A doctor she had retired and when she changed doctors, Medicaid wouldn't help her with her Adderall XR prescription, even after her doctor specifically wrote Brand Name Required, Medicaid wouldn't pay a dime. She's been on Vivanse which works a couple hours and then it's done. When you don't use your own energy, you won't sleep the best at night and She's up to 15mg of Zolpidem, and 4 Benadryl liquid gels at once and still not sleeping. Up to 400mg Trazidone last time they did this and she went 52 days without sleep, along with a broken arm down stairs and a black and blue eye passing out for a couple seconds up stairs into a brick wall. It's not impossible to go that long without sleep when you have a brain injury. Scary looking into what might happen to her without the medication that's been working for her. She'll just go back to getting prescribed Trazidone, Seroquel, Quetiapine, Lunesta, Ambian, Temazepam etc. Every night added with the 15mg of Zolpidem until she crashes downstairs because her doctor doesn't know what to do to help if Medicaid can't help a partially blind handicapped 28 year old women. Only can go so far, right? She can't even hold a job because of degenerative disk disease and 5 herniated discs in her back. What can anyone do for help? It stops after 10 years when you get worse?
