Re: How to find a good doctor (D.C. area)?

A lot of it is hit or miss... my best advice is be your best doctor. A lot of them don't know a lot about certain types of drugs (not really that they're to blame, there are TONS of them), do plenty of your own research.

I need to find a psychiatrist in DC. It has to be in DC, not Maryland or Virginia. Please send me a PM!

Re: How to find a good doctor (D.C. area)?

Just stumbled on this forum... is anyone active? How did this turn out? My doctor when on maternity and I thought I'd use the opportunity to see what other doctors are available.

Re: How to find a good doctor (D.C. area)?

Very few doctors prescribe Desoxyn.

Fewer than very few are willing to prescribe Desoxyn to a brand-new patient ...

Just find the best doctor you can and go from there ... if the time comes when the standard medications don't work, only a doctor who really trusts that you are serious and not running a drug scam ... will even THINK ABOUT prescribing Desoxyn.

Hey I'd like to try Desoxyn one day as well ... But the medication has lost favor over the years ... its abuse potential is one reason, I suppose.

Good luck ... BTW: it's not all that helpful to fantasize that there is one drug that will solve all our problems. That's almost never true ...

Re: How to find a good doctor (D.C. area)?

Hi, is this thread still active? I am looking for a psychiatrist or general practitioner to prescribe me Adderall on my first visit. Is this possible? Does anyone know someone who can do that? I live in Woodbridge, Virginia and can go to any city, distance isn't a problem. I have insurance as well, thanks.

Have you previously been diagnosed with ADHD (or narcolepsy, etc.) and treated with Adderall? If so, bring whatever documentation you have, including your medical records and contact information for your most recent doctor. Sometimes this will help you get a prescription more quickly, if you have recently moved and had been successfully treated with Adderall in the past.

If you haven't previously been diagnosed with ADHD and treated with Adderall, or if it's been some time since you were last treated for ADHD, you should expect a thorough evaluation before anyone will prescribe you Adderall.

If you contact your insurance company, they may be able to tell you what in-network psychiatrists are available. (Caution: sometimes lists are not up-to-date, and you should verify with the doctor that they're taking new patients and that they still take your insurance.)
