    I am American and I'm going to the UK for a bit. I have lived outside of the US for about 7 years now. I have been diagnosed with ADD maybe 7 or 8 times now, so I know I have it, and each country has a different procedure on how to get meds. Would I have to go to a psychiatrist first and get diagnosed all over again to get the prescription or could I just go to a GP?

    could you get a letter from your previous doctor to give to a uk gp that explains your diagnosis and current medication?
