I am sorry that you have anxiety and ADHD, but it is unclear what question you are asking about these conditions.

My pcp wants me to see a psychiatrist - all of the psych's in my area are booked until May. I cannot wait, I need help. I take adderral 30mg x2 per day and Valium. I scored a 52 on the anxiety testing. On the particular test 32 & up referenced severe anxiety. I no longer live life. I alienate myself, I do not partake in social activities, I had an attack in the movie theater last month. I need help. Thank you

It is still unclear what question you are asking.

If you are asking how you can receive care without waiting until May, there are a couple of options.

One possible option would be for your regular doctor to contact a Psychiatrist to see if you can get worked into the schedule sooner. Another possible option would be a local mental health clinic that is designed to address urgent mental health issues. These are available in most communities, although the exact structure will vary from one community to another. If you check with the local health department or hospital emergency room, they can usually give you contact information so that you can be seen more quickly.

Please let me know if I can provide other information,

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

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!!
