Adult ADD and Prednisone

I have adult ADD and was diagnosed 14 years ago. I do not take meds...although I tried several years ago with more side effects from the meds than I felt I was getting from the ADD itself...

Anyway...the reason for my post....

There have been about 5 isolated occasions when I have come in contact with poison ivy and had to be treated with Prednisone. Once on the med, I felt like a BRAND new person....My head is clear, not aggravated like normal, very confident...just can't explain how I become the person I always wanted to be. What in the world is in this med that is making mee feel so good!

BTW...I would NEVER take this med unless prescribed by a Dr for any reason but would love to know what I am on top of my game 150% when on it!

Please help! Would love to find a natural alternative that works this well!

I found your post extremely interesting. I am very surprised
that not one doctor answered your question. What are these
"experts" for?
