ADHD and alcohol

Quick Reply


acorn: Hi Rossall, I have been informally diagnosed by a psycho therapist but am a waiting list to see the specialist through my GP. I can’t get meds otherwise. My daughter is seeing a psychiatrist privately on Sat. It seems like a lot, out of the blue. Sept 21, 2021 14:50:52 GMT
Rossall: Hi acorn, well done for getting diagnosed are you on meds now? Sept 21, 2021 13:23:28 GMT
acorn: Hello everyone. I have just found out I have ADHD and my 6 year old daughter has an assessment for it on Sat. I’m feeling very overwhelmed by all of this and really needed some real stories that from real people. Sept 21, 2021 11:08:33 GMT
Rossall: Thanks for the reply. I was on Concerta about 6 years ago for a couple on months. It seemed to work at first but then wore off. Then I moved several times and changed GPs and have not been on it since Sept 18, 2021 16:18:44 GMT
liztopher: Rossall - yeah, the access to support sucks pretty hard. Potential way round it if your GP meant that they can't prescribe it in the first place, they could probably continue prescribing it if you were already stable on something? Sept 17, 2021 21:19:33 GMT
Rossall: GP says doctors in my town won't precribe ADHD meds so I need to see a specialist for which there's a 2 year waiting list. Oh well. Sept 12, 2021 13:16:32 GMT
Rossall: Hi everyone. Am hopefully getting back on Concerta XL if I can persuade my GP. Should help with my drinking. Sept 10, 2021 16:33:49 GMT

key: Hi all, as ridiculous as it sounds, only recently have I actually researched and understood my own behaviours and linked them to ADHD. Have not approached GP, so self diagnosis as it stands. Aug 25, 2021 11:33:05 GMT
