Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
treatment for ADD and ADHD tend to be simulants like Ritalin (methylphenidate), or Adderall (detroamphetamine/amphetamine) which can help patients who have ADHD to think more clearly and be more organized.
that is Provigil
and is used for patients who have sleep disorders, narcolepsy, shift work sleep disorders.
most insurance plans won't pay for it unless your doctors gives you one of these diagnosis.
I help many patients here online.
you can ask your doctor about modafinil
but again, it won't be paid for by your insurance company if you don't have one of those sleep disorders.
only trying those ADHD medications can see if they will help you over time.
you are welcome
