Should I go to a doctor and get diagnosed for ADD again?

I got diagnosed with ADD in elementary school. Throughout my life, my dad (Who's a doctor), has mentioned, noticed, etc. that I have really bad ADD as well.

But whenever I take medicine for it, I feel like it's not doing what it's supposed to do. I get really irritable and...( what's the word.... manic ?). I feel hyped up and when I'm in class my brain is like "MATH MATH MATH MATH MATH DO MATH FASTER", and then when the high starts to decline I'm all exhausted.

This makes me think I don't REALLY have ADD, but rather just reacting to stimulants like a normal person would. Right now I'm on the medication and my brain is pounding.

It's weird because WITHOUT the medicine, I'm relaxed, able to enjoy life and have bad grades. But on the medicine, I get good grades but act like a complete meth head.

I honestly don't even know if I can collect my thoughts right now.

Well you could be the 1% that the medication does the opposite effect.
