117: Helping Your Doctor Understand ADHD Part II

Last week we talked to Dr. David Pomeroy who shared with us information that was designed to share with your doctor or therapist. This episode adds to that vision, which is why we are calling it “part 2.”

Dr. Goodman is widely known in his circles for publishing “The Black Book of ADHD,” a 50-page book, consisting of mostly tables to help clinicians diagnose and treat patients. Eric Tivers refers to this as the cliff notes for ADHD. You can purchase here from his website.

Dr. Goodman sites three types of physicians:

  • Informed

    • Trained and actively helping those of us with ADHD. Educated and up on the latest research.

  • Uninformed

    • Not trained and unable to identify or treat those with ADHD

  • Misinformed

    • Prejudice toward those claiming to have ADHD. Non-believers and critics who doubt its very existence.

The most amazing thing I heard from this episode was the fact that ADHD is the most researched conditioned all of medicine and this is according to the Scientific Council of the American Medical Association.

Eric Tivers and Dr. Goodman then speak about a host of other topics including:

  • People who believe ADHD is simply a matter of willpower

  • ADHD treatment allows the person to be the person they are supposed to be.

  • What we can do to arm our physicians

  • Things to know about pharmacists.
