Why did patients apply to this trial?

adhd improvement of symptoms. I just wrote what motivated me to contact you in the last part.
Hi I applied to this trail because I'm ADHD, I'm currently taking Adderall. In the us it's becoming harder to get RX filled. I need $. I'd like to travel to Canada.
I've been diagnosed and medicated with ADHD since I was 8 till 17, and the ones I was on didn't really seem to work or would make me feel depressed and a husk of a person. I'm now 7-8 years off medication trying to manage my symptoms best I can but it's a constant daily struggle, and I'm just looking for some relief. I'm tired, and worn. I can't keep fighting everyday I'm not able to build up to anything in life because I can't focus and control my attention.
