I started with my primary care physician. She referred me to a psychiatrist to get diagnosed. I wish I wouldn’t have waited so long. Everything is so much better now.

What are my options of medical help here. It’s been hard to concentrate on anything recently. I never have been to a doctor for help but looks like I need some help now

She diagnosed ADHD, but I had my suspicions. I had to take some blood tests to make sure that it wasn’t anything else like anemia or thyroid problems. She also went through my medical history to make sure there weren’t any heart conditions, alcoholism, eating disorders, etc. From there she went over the different medications. I picked Adderall to start with mainly because it’s not a big issue if you skip a day and the affects are immediate. On the first day at the lowest dose, it was the first time ever that I knew what it was like to feel “normal.” After 2 months, I did have to go up slightly in the dosage.

None. I’m on a pretty low dose. On the weekends, if I don’t wake up early enough to take it, I skip it and it’s fine. I just don’t get as much done. I feel like adhd medications have gotten bad rap because of people that have misused it. My husband was worried when I first started taking it, and I told him that I also drink alcohol, but I’m not an alcoholic. Once he saw the positive difference in me, he changed his view on Adderall
