  1. I was diagnosed in August and also prescribed Adderall. I'm in my mid-thirties and was always a strong academic performer. Behind the scenes, though, I have been disorganized, anxious and constantly battling a sense that I'm really just a hot mess that somehow fooled everyone into thinking I'm smart and know things (this is obviously some distorted thinking, but that was my rationale for how I was so successful in some ways, but felt like a disaster in my mind). The diagnosis ADHD validated my experience in life, thus far, and that has been helpful, but medication has been iffy. I REALLY dislike the feeling of being medicated, but there have been a few times when I noticed that it was so much easier for me to keep up with with some of the curveballs my day throws me (like LT_Oneal_PAC describes). This gives me motivation to keep trying until I find something that works. I also find that my anxiety is significantly reduced when I take the medication (hello, dopamine!). I think GetMeOuttaThisMess has a good point - just list the the Adderall is PRN. They can verify that with your psychiatrist if absolutely necessary, but you should be covered. Good luck!
  2. I have 90 minutes for an initial interview and 30 minute follow ups.
  3. I am a Psych PA in Montana and I have never had a clear answer to this question. Initially I was advised to bill both med management and therapy, but later I was told only to bill for med management. I'm not sure what the correct answer is to this question. If you have found any further information and are willing to share that would be greatly appreciated!
