Customer Question
Hi I’m in college...

Hi I’m in college rn and I have ADHD I’m have I really hard time focusing in class and on homework is there anything I can take to help me

Doctor's Assistant: When did ADHD begin? Have you used any medication for it?

In high school some of my teachers told me that I show signs of ADHD but I never really did anything about it. But now it’s really affecting my school work and I have not taken medication for it before.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you used anything besides for this?

No

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No other then that I’m fine

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
