View Full Version : In Las Vegas- Need help finding a Dr. specializing in AD/HD

01-05-09, 04:09 PM
I was diagnosed when I lived in Utah as having AD/HD and put on Adderall XR. This greatly helped me, but when I ran out I had to go to the state facility because I have been laid off and have no insurance. The state will not treat AD/HD specifically and gave me short acting pills which since, I have developed a tolerance for the dose. Not to mention, the dose did not work for more than a few hours out of my day anyway. I do not have the money to go back to Utah and seek the help of my Dr. there and am reaching out to find a psychiatrist or nurse practitioner (APRN) with the background in which specializes in Adult AD/HD. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am desperate, especially since now I am full blown even while taking the meds. :confused:

Have your Utah doctor FAX your records to your LV/NV doctor or NP.

If you are diagnosed and have records/testing/history that is documented, you should be able to get your meds.

Get the records transferred.

These days NPs and GPs prescribe Adult ADD meds, if u are stable on them.
