About 6 years ago after several tests I was diagnosed with adult adhd and was prescibed adderol. I stopped going to that doctor becuase of insurance issues, and stopped taking my meds. My question is now that I have insurance again, and am going to go to a different doctor am I going to have to be rediagnosed in order to get back on my meds? The reason I ask is because the adderol worked really good for me. Before I was diagnosed with adhd they thought I might have been bipolar and gave me some meds that I had a really bad reaction to. Thanks for your timeView Thread
Yes this does help thanks. I guess if my next doctor doesnt work out I will just keep switching doctors until I get the meds that work best for me. I really went through it when getting diagnosed. They tried two different types of meds which made me feel really weird. The adderall was the only thing that actually worked for me. Thanks for your timeView Thread
