BF needs ADHD meds, GP said talk to a psychiatrist for evaluation. How does that work? How much is that evaluation gonna cost without insurance?

Most urban cities: Have free mental health clinics subsidized through the public health system. Do a little research for yourself locally and I suspect you can obtain the evaluation and treatment at no or at least very reduced cost. When dealing with issues like ADHD in an adult it is important to be evaluated and not just given medications without evaluation. The GP made the correct recommendation. ...Read more

What dosages and duration will result in "addiction" to clonazepam? Been taking 1 and 1/2 mg daily for 5 months. Is it time to talk to psychiatrist about stopping?

My psychiatrist did routine blood tests three weeks ago says that WBC is quite high. Said he would talk to gp about it. What could cause a high wbc?
