I'm not a drug addict or looking for a "hook up". I have been and am diagnosed with ADD when i was a child. Due to my family taking me off of it when i was 16, I've had an unsuccessful adult hood. I am now trying to be reevaluated. The trouble i am having is finding a doctor or psychiatrist that deals with ADD adults.

I am assuming that there is a huge problems with drugs in this state and that is why so many doctors are hesitant to give out the medication or believe that there might be an issue.

If anyone has any information on them that deal with this please share.

Thank you.

So are you looking for a good Psychiatrist with proven ADD/ADHD experience or one who is known to prescribe amphetimines? There are several in Nashville but they don't use meds to treat ADD...

I use to be on Ritalin when i was a kid. Now, i am not sure what i need to be on. I am not sure what "amphetimines" are? But if its a medication to treat ADD then yes, that is what i am looking for.

I've tried the no meds for years and have seen therapist to help me with out it. It doesn't help.

I know when i was a kid, i excelled in school and was all around great at the choices i made while on the ritalin.

But like i said i am not sure if its even around anymore.

This isn't the 20's. I don't agree that a lobotomy would be in my best interest.

Both ADD/ADHD are figments on a dr's imagination.
Another "get-me-rich, screw you" scheme.

ADD and ADHD are very real to the people who have it. Yes. There are Drs in Nashville who can help and they do prescribe amphetamine type medications. Please ignore these people with no clue what untreated add/adhd can do to a person or persons family. This condition IS Recognized as a medical illness. God help these people if they were to have a child with this condition. Untreated add and adhd in a child has a high suicide rate and children exhibit reckless behaviour. If these kids are treated with effective medications they can expect to have more successful lives. Ignorant people shouldnt be allowed to post answers.

ADD and ADHD is not a disease. It's bad parenting, lack of stucture, lack of discipline. Parents that would to drug the kids instead of making them sit still and focus and teachers that can't deal with yet another spoiled brat who knows no ramifications of bad behavior.

MADE UP, I am sure glad to know that you have an education in psychology, psychiatry, and medicine, because it is NOT a made up disorder. I have 3 children, very intelligent, that have different levels of it. They have structured discipline, and I still spank, along with ground. It is hereditary. My dad had it, my brother, me, now my kids, and my brothers kids. My middle child has a 190iq, but in a classroom with natural sounds like rustling paper, kids whispering, and pencils tapping, she cannot focus. She is medicated everyday for that and anxiety and mild Tourette's. She is 6th grade now, but she went from F's in 2nd grade to A's and B's. My 15 yo daughter is NOT medicated, yet she has the ability to make straight A's in all honors classes and overcome mild Tourette's. My youngest as of right now only has boundary issues. Once boundaries are set, he is good to go. Focus and impulsiveness are just mild issues, so meds are not a big deal right now and maybe never.
The issues are not made up by Drs, it's the teachers. They don't want to deal with one unruly kid. I told the public school system this year about the boundary issue and my son. 6 weeks later he had learned to manipulate them to the point he was spending his day doing nothing. He learned nothing for 6 weeks, which was the point that they told me about it. We moved him to private school where there is structure, and he is doing fabulous. The public school wanted him medicated and in special classes. After seeing a gen doc and a neuro, both docs said that he was smart enough to know that he could regress for school, and they would do nothing to him.
For those haters, ADHD is real. I have struggled my whole life. I barely made it through high school. I graduated with a two year college degree, but it took everything I had. I had several D's and lots of C's.
