ADHD Consultants

Seeing a psych for the first time next month to talk about add. Not sure what to expect. I'm pretty pharma averse but everyone has been saying how life changing Adderall /vyvanse are.

Wel I used to swear by meds though Adderall never worked for. Drove me crazy in fact. Loved Vyanse for a while and then quit cold Turkey after nearly six months. I have never felt better. Only thing that really worked for me was Mydayis. Unfortunately I moved to a new country and its not available here. My two cents: try therapy, regular exercise, and monitor what you eat (cut out wheat completely), and only then move to meds

ADHD is fixable with lifestyle changes - Exercise & diet

Agree on both counts. I recently started seeing a psych who specializes in ADHD and couldnt recommend more highly. having seen other folks who are generalists (or more frequently, claim to specialize in ADHD as well as many other conditions) the difference is night and day.

How’d you find your psych? Are they in network?

Looked on CHADD website. Usually not in-network. Like everything else, you get what you pay for.
