Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. I am sorry that you believe you may be suffering from ADHD. Unfortunately this type of diagnosis requires a face to face assessment and requires the use of medication to treat it, so you are definitely going to need to see a psychiatrist as soon as possible. I can provide you with names of psychiatrists in your area to assess and treat you, but as for when they will be able to see you is up to them as most psychiatrists have waiting lists for at least a few weeks to a few months.

If you give me your zip code I can provide you with a list of these psychiatrists who treat ADHD and may be able to see you as an emergency appointment.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
