    Hi guys, I used to take Antidepressants and Ritalin for my ADHD and Depression. I finished college and took a gap year and felt that I didn't need the medication while I wasn't doing school work, and after judging the gap year, I really feel that I need to go back on the medication for September when I am starting University,

    How do I ask a doctor for the meds that used to help me when I haven't been on them in ages and i don't like or feel comfortable with the doctors I've had im just fussy like that.

    I want to see a new doctor over in England when I move, one who dosen't know all my personal issues and things like that that I am private about.

    what like should I say, that I used to be on medication that i stopped for a while on my own terms and now i want back on it? will they think im just drug seeking when I'm really not?

    thanks, x

    I used to take xyz to help me with my ADHD and depression. I stopped it when i left college, because i thought i didn't need it. I think i was wrong though and would like to start it again.

    Dr will ask why you think that - what has been happening. Give examples.

    Write it down as backup if you might struggle to explain.

    Thanks for the reply, what did take you for your ADHD? and did you ask about starting them again to your doctor?
