Isn't it a relief? My new PDoc is excellent. My other one ought to be in jail. I like to figure things out on my own too, but when you have a competant PDoc its SUCH a relief to turn it over to them.

I have never even heard of someone getting their psychiatric care from a nurse only.You did the right thing by asking for a PDOc.

As for you dx, sounds right to me, but what do I know? Nothing!!! He does. I do think you are an over achiever (thats a complement) and that is probably the H in ADHD.

I took ritalin for 12-13 years, it was the perfect med for me. I stopped taking it when I started anti-depressants. Then I found out its an excellent augment FOR ME and my Doc has me on a dose I would never had considered before. I used to be an over achiever, everything had to be perfect. But I enjoyed my successes! I have to say, without ritalin, I don't know if I would have accomplished what I did. I had/have ADD.

So I wanted to tell you I think you will love Ritalin, but I took 5mg 3x day. One 5mg tab and I think you'll like how you feel. I'm afraid you'll take 20mg and it'll be too much and you'll quit. You can always try 5mg, see what it feels like and go from there. In fact, I'd start with that so you know what's what. Just my opinion, right after I say forget what everyone else says, do what your Doc says, haha.I just have a lot of experience with it.

Anyway, congratulations!!!
And stop saying if anyones listening!!
Most of the time you get a ton of responses!!!

I'm happy for you ;-)
