Q: I hate taking ADHD medicine because no one else does. Im the only one, and I dont want everyone knowing Im different.

A: Lots of guys take medicine everyday for different things. Some take it for diabetes, some take it for asthma, some for other things. Whatever the reason, theres nothing wrong with taking medicine. It doesnt make you different. Also, if your brain works with ADHD, you probably wont have to take medicine for the rest of your life. When youre an adult, you may decide to take it some times and not other times. Even if you do decide to take it all the time, theres nothing wrong with that.
