Tedral Use As A Child

Carol Says:

I used Tedral and Tedral SA as a child. In fact I overused and became addicted so much that I would be using 3 SA a night along with 6 or more tedral throughout the day with Ventilon.
I only managed to get off them when I became a speed addict.
I have been clean and relapsed a few times over the years but was a heavy drinker.
Now sober I have trouble concentrating, sitting still, ect....and I think I have ADHD which I probably always had but through Tedral and speed, anti depressants it's been controlled to one degree or another.
I now have real problems at work at home and I have now an methods addiction. When I take it I feel calm.
Am I self medicating to control my ADHD I believe so.
And I also believe that long term childhood use and over use did do some damage to my brain.
I have battled depression most of my life.
Do you believe I could actually be on the right track to treatment and recovery and to a more stable, relaxed and healthier future?
Please advise or comment...I need help I just can't go on any more like this.

Hello, Carol! How are you?

What are you doing to treat it and recover?

You didn't provide any specifics, other than to say that you're self-medicating and have self-diagnosed, so your question cannot be answered without more details.

Can you please post back and clarify? Thanks!

I believe that my brain is somehow rewired because of continued use of Tedral. I now take meds for adult ADHD which I never had to when I was taking Tedral. But the worst part is the daily chronic headaches and migraines that started after I stopped taking Tedral (not by choice). I've been suffering these side effects everyday for 20 years!

For legal and financial reasons no Doctor in the world will diagnose her as having brain damage from any drug, let alone a couple of psych drugs given repeatedly to a little kid.

I took Tedral for bronchial asthma during childhood and outgrew the bronchial asthma. I had amazing powers of concentration when I was a kid which I think was a side effect. So, they put me in the gifted children's class. I also had bouts of hallucinations in which all my senses were turbo-charged. I would perceive everything as louder, faster, and bigger than they really were. Later on my Mother told me that the Doctor had warned her that I might have some problems like that. I also do the finger flicking thing which I've heard is a sign of someone who has been overly medicated with psych drugs.
