Well I have ADHD and I am doing really bad

Patient

Q: Well I have ADHD and I am doing really bad in school and my parents say if I don't get my grades up I will be held back . The medication I take is adderall

Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

You should talk to a counsellor about which subjects interest you. And please change to take these subjects. Every person is different and I am sure you will have subjects that you are interested in.

This should help you focus in studying. Also, continue taking Adderall to help you. If it does not help you, please see your Doctor.

All the best.
