New Doctor, Old Problem

"I'm unhappy with my doctor and the medication I take. How can I find a new doctor?"

by Larry Silver, M.D.


Ask friends or a local ADHD organization to recommend physicians who work with patients who have ADHD. At your first visit, say that you were diagnosed with ADHD, but that your medication didn't seem to be a good fit. Ask for another assessment to confirm the diagnosis and to come up with other treatments.
