Timothy Denevi “Hyper: My Personal Story Of ADHD”

Timothy Denevi was among the first generation of boys prescribed medication for hyperactivity in the 1980s. He took Ritalin at the age of six, and during the first week, it triggered a psychotic reaction…doctors recommended behavior therapy, then antidepressants…nothing worked. His parents tried everything and consulted with numerous doctors. There was a liquid diet, a sleep-deprived EEG, and bizarre behavioral assessments before finding help in therapy combined with medication.

In his book Hyper: My Personal Story of ADHD, Denevi describes what the experience was like from the inside.
