I’d spend it on diagnosis, sounds strange, but my diagnosis ended up being narcolepsy, perhaps ADD is there (I think so) but it’s not the major issue, treatment is similar but different. It’s so important to get a proper diagnosis, there could be other co-morbities present.

I believe you have to be referred by your GP.

Also, try to stay open to the possibility of meds, there are newer drugs out there and many have said that ADD treatment needs to be a combination of meds and other forms of non-drug treatment, meds alone are not enough, non-drug treatments alone are not enough. As my therapist says “if you have a broken leg and you need a crutch, you should use a crutch”
