I think I may have ADD. I daydream all the time, to the point that it interferes w/ tasks I need to complete. I forget everything; keys, purse, etc., I have a difficult time concentrating on anything, all the classic signs. However, I'm also a recovering addict. I currently take Suboxone. My concern is that my family doctor won't believe me and think I just want meds to get high. That's not the case at all, I just want to be able to live a more productive life and right now I'm having a hard time doing that due to what I believe to be ADD. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should do or say to my Dr.?
Have you heard of intuniv this is a new add/adhd med. that has no amphetamines. Also they will give you a test and everyone is given this to check for sure sure signs of add/adhd just to be sure that is what you have. Since suboxone is an opiate you are still taking narcotics so even if they did decide to go with adderall or ridlin it wouldnt be that far of a stretch from taking narcotics cause you still currently do. There are alot of medications out there that dont have to have narcotics to be effective. What i would say to your doc if i were you is that you would like to take a test for add/adhd and tell him/her all the things you told us and that you feel that you may or may not have it. If your so called family doc that suppose to help you doesnt boot him go to someone that is caring and understanding there are still some out there. Trust me i know i went through hell to find mine and couldnt be happier that she is my physician she is super awesome.
