Re: which kind of doctors prescribe add medications?
Any doctor can prescribe the meds
No, government doesn't have record of the diagnosis
Most of the traditional ADD meds are stimulants (amphetamines such as Dexedrine/Adderall and methylphenidate such as Ritalin/Concerta) and are listed as DEA schedule II drugs. They cannot be called in and you must physically present an original signed prescription every month to a pharmacy. No refills allowed.
Newer, non-traditional, non-stimulant ADD meds are not controlled and can be called in (Strattera, Provigil, etc...)
