Anthony Bray MD :

Hello!

Anthony Bray MD :

I would recommend that you consult a psychiatrist as the best option. It sounds that you MIGHT have ADD.

Anthony Bray MD :

If this is the case then you may benefit from one of several medications such as Strattera, or Ritalin as a couple of examples.

Anthony Bray MD :

You distracted experience could be for some other reason and the psychiatrist would be best equipped to check you out further in this regard.

Anthony Bray MD :

The evaluation would likely consist of interview and filling out one of more questionnaire.

Anthony Bray MD :
