Thanks Kris - I've been on the phone all afternoon trying to get an appt somewhere. Left a mssg for my current Dr again (she's an RN) reminding her she promised to get me in for an evaluation...but as I said, she doesn't seem to beleive in Adult ADD.

BTW, there is a program at UCSD that does intensive nueropsychiatric testing and follow up for ADD and all potential comorbid or other disorders. Apparently it costs $1250, which insurance doesn't pay for. Still, if I have the funds I'd be tempted - what price a healthy brain, you know? I am sick of this treadmill!

Thanks again,

PV

BTW, do you know of any groups for ADD in SD? There is a website for an organization, but it looks pretty defunct.


> Hi there, I'm not sure if this is appropriate to post or not but I'm in San Diego and have a great psychiatrist that I've worked with for years. He's located in Hillcrest and his name is Randy Hicks. He's very cautious with meds and as you'll see in my earlier posts that frustrated me at first, however, it's paid off. Just to clarify cautious in a good way. I've always brought new meds to his attention and he's more than willing to have me try them he just likes to change one thing at a time and makes sure he has all the info. For example, he wouldn't start me on Strattera until he sat down with a rep from Lily to get all the information. Anyway, hope that helps.
