  1. TotallyADD should update the YouTube channel with more videos besides trailers. I really like these videos and I wish that more are made, but not everybody can afford to buy TotallyADD products or some would even want to see parts of the series before buying it.
    I really want to understand more about my disorder and I really hope to see more from this channel.

  2. I have not addressed my ADHD with drugs. I am otherwise mentally ill. But as far as sleep I wear a sleep mask to insure that I get the best nights sleep possible. Otherwise I have a hard time sleeping and my eyes wander to every little thing.

  3. This issue is usually controversial, polarizing and divisive. Getting the "straight dope" from the Pharmaceutical industry is virtually impossible… and there's no shortage of judgement withing groups of friends or families on the subject of prescription ADHD medications. Know for a fact that TotallyADD.com didn't take a dime from Pharma (in sponsorship or influence) to make this video series and I can't wait to see it!
