Does anyone know of a good Doctor in Dallas that can prescribe Adderall? I have a doctor but I want to switch because he makes me wait in his office for AT least 3 hours everytime that I go.

I know there has to be a good doctor in Dallas that I can go to. I have searched the internet and all I can find are therapists which do not prescribe drugs-just provide counseling.

Can you just go to a normal family doctor or does the doctor need to specialize in ADHD and how do you find this?

Any help would be appreciated!

You might check the listings in the Texas regional forum here.

Thank you very much for that list. My current Doctor is a family doctor who specializes in ADD and Depression. On that list --they are all psychiatrists, therapists, counselers...etc. I really would like to find a Doctor-it is always nice to get a shot for the flu along with my ADD new prescription appointment every month. Are there not many Doctors that treat ADD? If not-that is ok --I will go to a psychiatrist but I have never been to one before so it sounds strange to have to go do. Any suggestions? Thank you for answering my question-I had a feeling no one would have answered when I got on today to check to see.

Thanks for your help. I found a good family dr who will prescribe-he even took me down on my dose because he thought I was on too much-and he was right! he will even leave it at the front desk for me to pick up so I dont have to visit and pay 100 every time! It is great!

I went to a doctor that also perscribed me Wellbutrin for the first time, but she was the biggest ***** in the universe. This person I will never recommend XD

I go to a psychiatrist to get my medicines. There are specialized psychatrists but be warned, a lot of them will just throw medicines at you to try and not dig deep to find what you really need.
