I suggest you go to a psychiatrist or a neurologist - not a general practitioner. The doctor will have a checklist and should be able to tell you if ADD is your problem or if there is another cause for your symptoms. Also, a psychiatrist is better trained to know whether or not you are just trying to get drugs or truly need them for a medical problem. If your doctor does not take your symptoms seriously, you should find another doctor.
By the way, a psychiatrist is an MD and seeing one does not mean you are crazy so please get the treatment you need!
Discoverering ADD/ADHD is becoming more common in adulthood. What kind of symptoms are you having?
Hello, Tell the Dr. you have a hard time focusing and finishing projects and simple tasks. I also said I had a hard time concentrating on things. He gave me Vyvanse and it really helps. Good luck. It does also give you some energy too and I tried Adderral and didn't like that as much. marnie602
