The Uk is a complete joke when it comes to ADHD i have first hand experience of this. The phyciatrists seem to think kids grow out of it when they hit 16 by some sort of miracle theit noy being affected anymore & the meds are discontinued. The NHS doesnt even recognize adult adhd in 99% of the uk, what the hell is going on is this a joke or what. When went for my first appointment with nhs the guy told me adult adhd doesnt exist. anyone else in this boat?

it is a joke i got rfered back to the GP now am looking into going to see a private person. but that costs money.

i got told i had it by an educational phycologist in college last yr, but no doctor will diagnose me officially

Well i talked to my psych and told him there was nothing for adults and before i knew it he opened an adult adhd clinic in our local hospital! so that was good news not just for me but for all the children that are becoming adults, they now have somewhere to go. there is going to be an adhd conference in cheadle stockport in march and the more that go there and speak out the better.

Who knows...........
