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.

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.
