Hi… I am very happy to find this thread. I am now in PhD program and I just been diagnosed with ADHD after I suffer from a heavy anxiety for months. My professor is very supportive and she even the one who encourage me to go to psychiatrist to treat my anxiety. But now I know that the main problem is ADHD, I am just curious that all of you take medication or not? For now, the psychiatrist didn’t give me any medication and suggest for CBT, restructure my schedule, be positive, etc. How to manage your ADHD and PhD? Thanks
