Just Diagnosed With ADHD (Adults)
To medicate or not to medicate??
I was diagnosed with inattentive type ADD a couple weeks ago, and my doctor prescribed me meds already. I’m wondering if anyone has had success with talk therapy alone, or are meds always necessary? Has anyone ever gone on meds and then gone off, or is it for life? I just want to be thoughtful about this before I start taking new meds. Thank you for your help.
