    Hi. I visit a psychiatrist for Attention Deficit Disorder and I want to stop my visits because all my psycbiatrist can do is to prescribe meds. I want to try another option. Have you ever visited psychologist for Attention Deficit Disorder, if you did, could you tell me about your experiences?

    My child was on ADD meds and she found them helpful. She learned to concentrate. She didn't find them bad to take. She was 16-17 yo at the time. Unfortunately she was so far behind in her classes she didn't have the background to do well enough once she got stabilized. Do it early.
