Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) Care Center
Brianna had a hard time sitting still and often got in trouble for lashing out at school. When her mom took her to the doctor, Brianna was diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Her doctor prescribed her some medicine to help with Brianna’s behavior.
A month later, Brianna’s mom brought her back to the doctor’s office for a follow-up visit. Brianna’s doctor adjusted her treatment. Now, Brianna has an easier time at school and her behavior has improved.
If you or a loved one suffer from ADHD, it’s important to follow up with your doctor. Schedule follow-up visits:
- Within 1 month of your first diagnosis
- 2 times within the next 6-9 months
- Once a year after the first year
If you need help scheduling a visit or have questions about ADHD, a care manager can help. Call Member Services at 1-888-756-0004, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to get started.
