Do you meet with a dr regularly if your prescription is stable? I was diagnosed about 9 months ago and have been regularly meeting with a psychiatrist to review and adjust a prescription. I found a medication / dose that seems to be relatively helpful and wondering if I should still be meeting with the dr regularly or if a message checkin / request for a refill is normal.

Yes. Doctors are required to meet with patients at regular intervals since most ADD/ADHD meds at controlled substances. I'm 45yo and I've been on the same medication and dose for 5+years and I see my doctor every 3 months. Some doctors will also require a urine test at regular intervals or even at random times to ensure you're taking your medication and not just selling it.

Yes. I’ve been on the same medication for over 15 years. I take it consistently. I still have to see a doctor every month.

Yes, I see my doctor every three months, virtual appointments except once a year when I have to go in person.

Anyone else seeing all negative results for COVID testing at their hospital? We have had several patients who are clinically positive with no other explanation and they test negative over and over. Could it be faulty tests or technique? Or that some people don’t test positive until a few weeks after their symptoms? All I know is I don’t trust these tests one bit. Scary thing is, if the patients test negative they are not isolating them and some nurses are only wearing surgical mask in room.
