I think I've had ADD my entire life and never seen a doctor

Customer Question

I think I've had ADD my entire life and never seen a doctor about it, it's a little embarrassing! But it's really hard to focus and finish anything productive. So my son said mom you need to talk to someone and get on meds.
JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: No, nothing daily
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Not really! Sulfa I have a reaction to that
