I am considering going to the doctor to see about the possibility of getting a script for adds.  I have 2 friends with prescriptions for it and they said it was pretty easy. After reading about Add/Adhd and doing some of the online tests for it,  i just may actually have it! Was wondering if anyone has experience or advice/pointers for a visit like this?

first thing, dont ask for addys.

i do have adah.  this is word for word what i said.  "im a college student, and even from highschool i have issues concentrating my focus on ANYTHING for long periods of time, i start alot of projects and never finish before starting a new one"

 

but to be fair, when i was a kid i was DDX'd with ADHD.  but the dr didnt know that.  i got 20s the first try :)

I'm following this ! Am considering the same thing as @scrog and the insight from @2earls is very helpful. Will also report back after I've done some doc research, checked insurance coverage and taken the plunge to try this path. So glad this is a thread !

@2Earls Your consul too @Scroog I think Your advise to @SoSiSLol! Is good solid info. I've done these for a long time. Having to get the MD F2F & even have some notes, but I've found that if You try & gop in there w/ your speill  I'd say play it how the discussing is  going etc. & play it by ear. That way You don't come up looking like You've doseected every possable response etc..Good luck. Rxpro999000-

yeah its kinda funny or just weird to think of it but you'd probably WANT a doc who was kind of an asshole. or at least just one who didn't want to get too involved in the situation or too personal.

I just went and recieved a script for the first time. I found a mental health clinic in my area that has a prescribing nurse on staff and scheduled an appointment with them . This clinic didn't accept my insurance ,but I may be able to be reimbursed by my insurance company . It was around $150 for the appointment entry,  which sounds spendy, but is cheaper than sourcing them... Any who the appointment was a breeze . I told Nurse that I had been prescription drugs as a young teen and when I left school I quit taking my prescription .i explained i was looking for ADHD meds because I am losing focus and direction in life, because I can't stay focused long enough to complete any task and I am afraid I may lose my job due to it . She asked alot of general life questions , and I proceeded to give her my whole life story, in no particular order, while looking at her and out the window down . 

Adhd meds effect Everyone differently , so don't be nervous to schedule your appointment specifically for this and and discuss it during your appointment. These offices are so much better than a doctor's visit , now only if they could prescribe pain relievers with their mental scripts,  life would be too easy :)

Well i took the plunge in-person and it worked out well. PM me for specifics of how I did it, if you need help. Definitely a great decision, just do your homework and a full dress rehearsal haha.

Glad you got your script. I was prescribed them in my early 30's. I have found out it is best to go to a Psycologist if they can prescribe, Psychiatrist or if you can get in with a Mental health nurse practicioner. You can always say I took them in my 20's and said they worked fine just have the dose that you took. Most records if over 10 years old cannot be located. Tell them they calm you down to the point you can fall asleep. Truely if you have ADD that's what it will do

My husband was diagnosed with ADHD when he was young. As an adult he told the doctor that he didn't like taking the medicine, so of course they wrote him a prescription for Adderall. I ended up benefitting because he still didn't like taking them.

Somehow I think if he had asked for them , they would have said no, but I'm cynical where doctors are concerned. 

Agreed doctors dont take that risk no more

Just curious, has anyone in the states heard of or tried  donefirst, or another company named cerebral? They claim to give a prescription after a video conference with a licensed provider. I get adds for it all the time now. I read reviews, seems like a possible way to get a diagnosis/ prescription.
