TANYA Bardsley shared how she was bedridden after a seizure and palpitations after taking medication for her ADHD.
The Real Housewives of Cheshire star went to her Instagram feed and shared her experience after taking advice from a fellow sufferer on the internet.
She said she was looking for various drugs when she had a bad reaction that made her feel like she was trapped in “concrete”.
She said, “WARNING – I did a lot of research on ADHD for a specific project – I tried 3 different drugs for ADHD and stopped the third after having palpitations and a seizure.
“So I’m back to ADHD and my concentration has been terrible for the past few weeks and I read on a forum the other day that a lady just takes an ADHD pill the day she needs to be focused to do her job occupies.
“So I thought, Oou, this might be perfect for me. I took 1 atomoxetine 40 mg tablet (the tablets I originally started on that didn’t cause my heart palpitations 🙏) most of the day and last night feel like I’m trapped in concrete 😫
“I’m throwing myself in a cold shower now to try to wake up for the kids but I just wanted to warn that you are not an idiot like me and take advice from the internet 🙉❤️ also guess how much work I did today 🙄 zilch 🙄❤️ #adhd #adhdproblems #adhdmedication #adhdwomen #adhdmemes #adhdsupport #adhdtips #angst #bed #concrete ❤️ “
Tany’s followers were grateful for her honest contribution, with a letter: “Because of your awareness of ADHD, I checked it out, and I was referred and diagnosed 8 weeks ago. So thank you for posting this. You helped me x “
Another wrote: “I’m glad you and @oliviajade_attwood are paying more attention to girls with ADHD as I struggled hard for my daughter’s diagnosis ♥ ️”
The 38-year-old bombshell stars on the reality show that follows the lives of women in one of Britain’s most affluent areas.
She told The Sun in 2019 that she was taking therapy sessions to improve her mental health.
She said at the time, “I still take the antidepressants, the low dose, because I stopped taking them on the last series. I’m scared of going back off them because I’m giving myself induced chemical depression.

- Mood swings, irritability, and a quick temper
“I see a mind expert on the show and he gives me these exercises. I think this will be pretty good for the scared crowd.
“You have to close your eyes, feel where the fear is, and for me it’s here (pointing at the stomach) and imagine what color it was, and it was blue. And somehow you switch it over.
“Another thing is when you feel fear because you are in the past or the future. So you have to name five things you can see, three things you can hear, two things you can smell Bring yourself back in the room. “
