I am 18 years old and I have adhd. I would like to know how to ask my doctor about treating my adhd with medical marijuana. I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was about 9 years old. since then I have taken Concerta, Focalin, Focalin XR, Vyvanse, and I am currently taking Adderall (adderrall) XR 30mg twice a day. Marijuana helps me feel calm and more interested in school work. I am not sure how to ask a new doctor about this. I would like to try taking one vyvanse in the morning and medicinal pot for the evening. Any suggestions on what to say or things to expect would be appreciated.
