Machalah I understand you’re frustration with the psychiatrist. After similar experiences I realized psychiatrists are essentially only good for meds. And some are better than others. If you don’t like her then keep looking-it’s going to be a long relationship. I hate the searching part. But if you are planning on medications then you’ll probably need the psychiatrist and look for one that specializes in children with ADHD. So hold on to the script. (For better or worse our pediatrician actually oversaw my son’s ADHD meds). But for behavioral issues and strategy’s to deal with ADHD you’ll want to see a therapist or psychologist that specializes in children’s ADHD. Which they say is a good compliment to meds. And again good luck hopefully you’ll find someone you & your daughter click with.
