Why did patients apply to this trial?
- "I struggle with my ADHD symptoms. I'm starting law school in the fall, so I really want to figure out a way to manage my symptoms so that I can be successful in school."
- "I do not have insurance and I have been looking for a way to take care of my ADHD for years. My current dr is only $50 a month but does not prescribe controlled substances like my adhd medication. I’ve been with her for almost 10 years and my quality of life has fallen apart and COVID didn’t help. I was enrolled in school and my focus made every day a battle of crying and melt downs trying to study until I had to quit due to stress."
