sboom : As much as waiting sucks, I would be highly cautious of moving around GP’s until you find one that prescribes medication for ADHD. The medications and dosages work differently on everyone and there’s a chance you might be worse off if the medication doesn’t agree with you. A Psychiatrist understands the subtleties a lot better than a GP, and also knows what to look out for better if it’s not working out, knows how long between medications you should wait before trying a different one etc. Like I said, my friend took some time getting his medication right and he was very closely monitored by his psych until it was balanced.
Can you look for an ADHD/mental illness forum and ask other Canadian bees for suggestions?
