Dear Barend,
This is a very subjective topic: some people find themselves more able to control their symptoms as they move into adulthood; others prefer to stay on medication. If you are able to cope with your daily schedule without any medication this is generally a good thing. Input from family members may also be beneficial.
Kind regards,
Delia

Barend - this a very interesting statement you made: " I find myself looking at everything seeing what others do not" 

It sounds like you could have Aspergers Syndrome - have a look into it...
