Brief Answer:
Consultation

Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thanks for your question.

The first step is to find a psychiatrist to evaluate you in person. This is best accomplished by calling your insurance company to obtain a list of psychiatrists in your area who take your insurance, and then calling to make an appointment. If you are diagnosed with ADHD, typical medications used are stimulants such as Adderall or Vyvanse.
