Has anyone had any experience with online platforms prescribing ADHD medications? I’ve seen ads for Done and wanted others input. I was diagnosed 21 years ago and have been treated by doctors every month since, so I don’t need an initial diagnosis. But my health insurance changed and my doctor is no longer covered. I can’t get in to a new doctor without a long wait, nor do I have time to take off work for the appointment, which is why I was leaning towards a virtual appointment. Thanks!
