Apex/Cary/Holly Springs area would be ideal, but in reality we would be willing to try anywhere in the triangle.

We go to Jeffers Mann and Artman. They are located behind the Waverly Place shopping center in Cary, at the intersection of Kildaire Farm and Tryon.

You should really see a psychiatrist for pediatric ADHD. The drugs work on the brain and not something to fool around with. You need someone who "knows" the brain to oversee the meds, at least in the beginning. I would recommend FPPA over by Regency, Family Psychiatry and Psychology Associates. A regular pediatrician is simply not equipped to deal with the potential side effects that may occur and why Drug A may work better than Drug B, etc. When my son took ADHD meds we have some really bad side effects with one drug.

I actually agree with your logic completely, but we have had a poor experience with both a psychiatrist and a clinic psychologist. We went that route for several months and the behavior and symptoms seemed to amplify and become more pronounced.

I'm talking about to prescribe and oversee the drugs not for therapy (obviously a psychologist can't prescribe drugs since they aren't an MD).

It all depends on the medications, the patient, and the overall experience a pediatrician has in the ADHD speciality whether it would be best to see a pediatrician or psychiatrist. Personally, unless it becomes a difficult case or there are more underlying issues besides ADHD, a good pediatrician should be able to manage and prescribe medications.

I worked several years for an amazing pediatrician that specialized in ADHD and people would travel across state lines to see him. He knew more about ADHD medications and side effects than any psychiatrist in the area. Unfortunately he practiced in WA state and not in NC.

I don't know any pediatricians here in the triangle area. As you know it is so important to have a good physician with experience in ADHD along with a good support system in the school and home environment. Best of luck to you and your child.
