I saw a new PCP in a new city and finally talked about how I believe I may have ADHD (I’m 40), particularly based on things I’ve read here. He suggested I talk to a psychologist first, but I’m having the hardest time getting an appt with anyone in the area. Has anyone used Teladoc and have any recs? Alternatively, does anyone have recs of anyone I can to talk to so I can be tested?

I had the same issue and just reached out to Klarity. It was fast and easy.

Thank you! Already went through the self eval (wish I knew those feelings/issues were signs of something) but the provider I am looking to book is giving me an error on the site. Hopefully they respond soon and I can get this booked. Thanks again!

Circle medical does video appts and I got a diagnosis and then used them for medication management. I had a great experience with them.

Same here. I had a bad experience with a couple of teladocs, but an office in my area offers in person and virtual visits and I have done well with them. They are lifestance health. Not perfect, but if you find a good therapist or doctor to work with that's all that matters. Might take a couple tries before you find the doctor that is right for you.

I keep outlook closed while working because the notifications are very distracting and I have this huge compulsion to respond right away. I planned to open it hourly and set alarms so I wouldn’t forget. My colleague next door mentioned politely that he could hear an alarm going off every hour. Anyone know of a solution to this predicament? I don’t see a way to make outlook hold notifications and push them through only once an hour, but there might be a way.

One of my frustrations with myself (writing it out here so I can work on it) is that I will print out something that I need, such as a traffic collision report. I will read it without actually reading it. This results in spending time without actually retaining info. Does this happen to anyone else? I’ve found that I can actually focus when I truly force myself, but often this happens after I’ve discovered an error or an important piece of information that I should have noticed earlier.

Tired of my pharmacy. Every single month I have to call the pharmacy for my Adderall, they say they don’t have any prescriptions for me, they ask for additional information, they magically find it, and then I have to wait like 1 to 8 hours to have it filled. It’s a pointless phone call. Why do I have to repeat these shenanigans every month?! Is it just Rite Aid? Is CVS any better? So irritating.

How do you approach the initial conversation with your doctor? I have taken a variety of both anti anxiety and anti depressants. Nothing works.

I’m going to talk with my psychiatrist at my next appointment, but I’m curious if others have had issues with Vyvanse no longer working. I’ve been taking it for about 15 months. It lost it’s effectiveness for me a few months ago, so my psychiatrist increased my dosage to the max. That helped slightly, but it’s back to no longer working. I usually don’t take it on weekends and even had a 10-day period in August where I didn’t take it.

If you’ve had this issue, I’m curious to know what you did.

I have a prescription for Vyvanse. Even without Vyvanse, I have diagnosed generalized anxiety. On top of that, depression runs in my family. It’s not a diagnosis, but I suspect it’s there. Vyvanse certainly doesn’t help the anxiety, especially when I’m coming down off it for the day. I want to ask my doctors about an anti-anxiety/depression meds, but does anyone here take ADHD meds and those other meds at the same time? I’m worried about the drug interactions/potential physical effects. TIA.
