Hi. The process would be to have a psychiatric assessment for ADD or ADHD. This can be done by a psychologist or psychiatrist. The medicine is controlled and needs to be prescribed in person. So after you have tested positive then next step is to get the prescription. Hope that helps. Ther wouldn't be any virtual practice that could order the medicine for you online or by phone.
