I think another thing to think about is the role of a psychiatrist. From what I have found is a psychiatrist will treat whatever conditions you have. Some will diagnose you but that is usually left to a psychologist. When it comes to working through the associated issues you have either a psychologist or an ADHD coach may be better.
A psychatrist is not really a therapist some do a reasonable job of it but it’s not really their training they are medical doctors they primarily will find the best course of treatment for you. And your particular symptoms. I think if you where to tell the doctor about a particular symptom and they didn’t show interest in it that would be a cause for concern but if they just are not aware of it it’s just a gap in training and they can read up a little and perhaps offer you a medical soloution.
Maybe what your looking for is supplemental support beyond the meds and your particular doc may or may not be able or willing to provide that. I don’t know your exact situation so it’s impossible to say.
I am picky about my doctors. Tend to trust my gut feeling a little it’s a long term relationship and good treatment is assisted by good medical history so changing is not a decision to take lightly but if you walk in the room and feel that your not getting the level of care you want maybe you should look around.
It’s hard to find a good doctor and expensive to try them out because each time you change they look at you and your concerns differently.
I started with a psychologist that was average who cost me quite a bit of money and when they got to the end of the diagnostic process the response was weak so I sought a second opinion from a psychiatrist. I took all my test results and the final report from the psychologist and then spent probably 3 hours talking through it all and he then decided to trail medication. The time and money in the end was worth it and I now have a diagnosis and treatment.
But I know that he is not a therapist as such he is not the guy to go and talk about specific problems in detail he wants to know all the details of any symptoms and side effects but we don’t talk so much about the impacts the symptoms have on life but how they change with different doses and medications and suggests changes right down to the time of day and sleep patterns and other management ideas. Essentially he is treating the condition and symptoms but not so much trying to help with how i feel about the condition as such.
I am not sure I have explained this well so take it with a grain of salt.
