This is way off topic, and possibly inappropriate. Since I don't want to offend, if the mods deem it necessary, please delete this post.
The test is quite simple. If speed helps, you have it. If you don't, then the stimulants will make it worse. The drugs that treat ADHD are mostly some form of amphetamine. This addresses the dopamine pathway. There is another set of drugs for the nor epinephrine path way. We have tried both.
Many un-diagnosed adults already self medicate. Lots of coffee, or other solutions.
They are somewhat reluctant to diagnose adults. I think that the concern is that the person being tested may be looking for cheep meth.
One of my children, on the last day of the school last year, asked if she could go to school un-medicated, since they were not doing anything anyway. I think it is ironic that my kid's way of getting high, is to not do drugs.
