Add/adhd meds

I have had add since childhood but was never put on meds for it because my mum has always been very anti medications. I’ve always wanted a prescription for add meds but my pdoc won’t do it because I’ve got a history of mania and am schizoaffective. Is it unheard of for some psychiatrists to prescribe add meds for people with both issues? Or do they only medicate for one or the other? Hmm.

some psychiatrists are eager to throw meds at every little thing, so i think it just depends per pdoc. keep bringing up your struggles and they might give you what you need!
