Top Ten Medicines to Take If You Have ADHD and Autism


The Top Ten

1 Focalin XR

Take this and don't listen to AlphaQ's advice because hell just tell you to smoke more weed.

One of the best medicines to take. - Pony

2 Intuniv

I have adhd..
the side effect (1, I've never done it before I took the pill) is having a jittery bladder, especially while asleep or sedentary such as in class. this cursed thing makes me dribble or pee while asleep.

Believe it or not, I have both ADHD and autism. I also have OCD, schizophrenia, anxiety issues, and depression. Am I broken? I live just fine, but I feel like my brain doesn't work the way it should. - RockFashionista

Also known as Tenex. - Pony

3 Melatonin Supplements

Beware of this type of medication. Melatonin is NOT a sleeping pill. Melatonin is what in your body makes you sleepy when you're in darkness. It's an chemical body adapter for lightning / darkness. People who have too low melatonin in their body will have trouble sleeping when the evening begins. People with normal melatonin levels risk to take an overdose ( not deadly ) and produce more melatonin than needed and it won't help them for sleeping better.

I may not be autistic, but I have pretty bad insomnia (typing on zero hours of sleep) and melatonin has hardly helped me. If anything, I don't sleep earlier and when I do, I get blurry but colorful and weird dreams. - keycha1n

I take this every Sunday to Thursday night with water and it helps me sleep.

Helps you fall asleep. - Pony

4 Concerta

It helps those with mental illnesses.

5 Abilify

Yep. I'm autistic and I'm always on this medicine because the place where I live makes me depressed (I plan on moving though).

It is used mainly for depression... - Pony

6 Ritalin

I have adhd and I take this - TheILikeTrainsKid

I actually both ADHD and autism. I take methylphenidate because I do not focus very much in school.

Ritalin and Concerta are Methylphenidate HCL. This molecules makes me sleepy. Adderall wich is DL-Amphetamine HCL works much better.

7 Adderall

I have been on Adderall for ADD since the 8th grade, no medicine helps half as much as this. You feel so much more motivated and focused, it's incredible. There's a reason why college kids try to get it - ryanrimmel

I was forced to take this as a kid. As a result, I got extreme sun sensitivity and I get sunburned really easily. I want to sue the makers of this drug so bad and receive compensation for my suffering! >:(

I feel like this works way better than the other medicine because I myself have ADHD and have taken other medicines and it haven’t effect me. Although some people can get addicted to this because it’s strong the thing is the people with ADHD don’t usually get addicted to things like Adderalls or Ritalin because of the low Dopamine.

8 Risperidone
9 Strattera
10 Dexedrine

The Contenders

11 Olanzapine
12 Clonidine

I need this to sleep at night
