    Haha I'm not joking. I've been taking medication for the past 3 years and my grades went from all B's to all A's. It can be difficult to get diagnosed though, I had to go to a doctor and a psychiatrist and get all of my teachers to fill out forms about my grades and behavior in class but it was all worth it in the end. Well, it's only 5 o'clock here, but perhaps in the morning you could begin asking around! Just out of curiosity, how common is ADHD in the UK? It seems like almost a quarter of students in US take medication..it's most likely just over diagnosed, though.

    i'm not sure of the actual figures, but i think that it is over diagnosed here too. i think at the moment there are a lot of children on medication - i've watched some programs claiming all different sources and everything. i think its just difficult to distinguish between a real sufferer of ADHD and a disruptive child. but i guess, if it helps the people who need it, it must be worth it in some way but i'd never take someone else's medication - i've read way too many science journals and done too much work experience not to have the consequences sitting in the back of my mind

    Ah, I see. I was just wondering if I would be like the only person at uni who takes medication for it. And as for distinguishing between a real sufferer, that is the reason my parents didn't put on meds at a young age and waited until I was around 14. Well good luck anyway!
