Write to concernedmom because she started a thread too about the correlation between adhd meds and csp and a few of us have noticed the same thing.

I tend to pick more when I dont take my adderall...when i take it im more focused on other things than my picking but when i dont take it im more spacey and find my self in trances of picking. maybe it depends on the person... but i have heard more that the meds cause picking than the other way around. does anyone else pick less when on adderall?
