    Hello,
    Could anyone please recommend what health issues should be checked before trying a supplement or going on medication? I would like to visit my family doctor before I decide to get consultations on ADD medications. I have an Inattentive ADD and I want to try supplements to help me focus and gain energy.
    Thank you

    Your doctor should perform a complete physical exam before prescribing medication. That’s a good idea before trying supplements as well.
