    I called a PCP To get a diagnosis and they referred me to a specific Psychologist that specialized in ADHD, call around and ask “do you see patients for ADHD” some people are against acknowledging ADHD is a real thing- and you do not want to go to them. So ask that specific question, if they say no- ask if they know who they can refer you to.

    Or if you’re a part of any kind of big group in your area (like on Facebook) you can post in your group if anyone has a recommendation! (We have a lot of like garage sale groups in my Area that had like thousands of people in there)

    I don’t think there is a “typical” dose- I’ve only been diagnosed for about 3 months and have already tried a few medications- I think I like IR because I feel like I can control it better- some days I ALWAYS take 20mg in the AM and depending on how I’m feeling aroun 11-12 I’ll either take another 10-20mg… I actually am going to talk to my dr about a 3rd dose and what she thinks about that because I feel like I could use a little more cause I’m crashing when I get home (I’m a mom of 4 and that’s when i need to be most present is AFTER work!) I honesty think I’m like super ADHD cause even at 20mg I feel like I could use a little more… I looked it up and other experiences and 15×3 is not that bad! Don’t feel guilty if you feel you really need it! ADHD is a real freakin thing and people are just judgey! You know your self!
