When to Switch Doctors

"My new primary-care physician told me she doesn’t 'do' adult ADD, and wants me to go off my meds. What should I do?"

by Larry Silver, M.D.


Find another doctor. If you know any adults who are being treated for ADHD, find out who their doctors are. If you don’t know other ADDers, ask the members of a support group in your area for physician recommendations. You can find support group directories at chadd.org and add.org.
