      Hey guys I’ve finally figured out that I have adhd. My gp was medicating me with antidepressants. I went and seen a psychiatrist and got tested.
      My problem is he is happy to medicate me but first he wants to do a drug screen. I’ve previously used weed to wind down after work and to help me sleep. If it shows up would they deny me getting medicated ?

      I live in the UK, recently diagnosed with ADHD combined type. i’m 27 and i have been smoking cannabis for many years, and have always been upfront about this to most if not all healthcare professionals i see. i would say be honest about how much and how often you do smoke.

      good luck!
