Hello everyone.

I just went to a walk in doctor to talk about my problems. I use to be on Dexedrine as a child but stopped the medication. Anyways, the doctor thinks I'm having a lot of trouble with my ADD but my wait for a referal to a psychriatrist is 6 months!

I tried contacting my old doctor (A child therapist) but his number seems to be out of order, thinking I could get a faster referal out of him. I'm going to College next year, and really need to get back on this in order to concentrate. I was just wondering what I could do to get a faster referal? I'm currently on Accutane, and I know that some of the side effects of accutane are linked to that drug. Maybe I could get one through my dermatologist?

Thanks

Finding ADD information for this country was *NOT* an easy task. Lots of "alternative" and herbal stuff, very little medical.

I do not have the information directly but do have some sources from Canada that may be able to better answer your question.

Canada version of CHADD, which may be able to give you information of how to find a health care services in your country.

You may be able to write this guy and ask him some question.


Search engine results (http://ca.search.yahoo.com/search?p=attention+deficit+disorder&y=Search+the+Web&ei=UTF-8&fr=sfp&x=wrt&meta=vc%3DcountryCA)

Yahoo search, give ya an idea this wasn't easy plus you may find some thng useful I over looked.

Goverments info site (http://secure.cihi.ca/cihiweb/dispPage.jsp?cw_page=aboutclient_e#service)

The goverment site wanted me to register which I can't because I live in US but maybe worth checking out.


Hope this helps.
