You'll need to go to a psychiatrist who's qualified to diagnose it. They've put restrictions so that only qualified Doctors can diagnose. That said, if you have it, get help. You don't even realize how bad it is until you get the right medication and realize how out of control your thinking really is. I take a very low dosage of adderall xr. Make sure whatever medication you try, get the slow release. I never understood why anyone would want the short burst medication that wears off quickly. Also, pay attention to your body. Don't take too much. Too much can give you mood swings. You just want barely enough to slow down your mind so you can think straight. You have to figure out your own dosage by listening to your body. Do not think that more is better. You're not looking for a high, you're looking for the ability to think in an organized fashion. Less is more when it comes to medication. I tried getting off a few times and then watched things turn into a big mess. I finally realized it's like a vitamin for me. I just need a little bit to help me stay on track. I would say, let the doctor prescribe an amount, then start taking half of what they suggest and see how that feels first. My doctor initially prescribed 4 times what I found I really needed. My temper became really bad and I realized I needed to cut down. I finally found that just 10mgs/day is perfect for me and has no side effects. With you it may be different, but remember, less is more. Oh, and don't look for a sudden change. If you do it right, the change will be so subtle, that the only way you'll see it is by how much more organized you've become after a month. Hope this helps.
