faq - frequently asked questions

Is this a "real" diagnosis?

Yes. Any diagnosis resulting from your assessment experience is official and becomes a HIPAA-protected part of your healthcare records. You control who will have access to this diagnostic information going forward. 

Who is providing the assessment?

Assessment services are provided by appropriately licensed and trained clinical mental health professionals or clinical-trainees under their supervision. The specific qualifications of your assessment provider will be available as part of your report.

What can I do with my assessment report?

Your assessment report is your official record of the assessment process and any diagnosis which results. This record can be shared with your primary care provider or an appropriate specialist to pursue medication options, as part of an accommodation process at work or school, or simply for your own knowledge and reference. 

When pursuing medication support, Purple Wellness always recommends clients explore non-stimulant medication options first, primarily due to the on-going shortage of stimulant medications and the challenges* in getting consistent access to such meds. A fairly recent non-stimulant medication for ADHD shows potential for supporting improved executive function - Viloxazine (name-brand: Qelbree). For more info, check out this great video explainer from Psychiatrist Dr. Tracey Marks.

Checkout this article from ADDitude Magazine for more details details on ADHD medication options.

*Note: Adderall, Vyvanse and other stimulant medications commonly used to treat ADHD are Schedule II Controlled Substances under the Federal Drug Control Act. This is the same classification as cocaine, heroin, and meth. Due to the potential for abuse and serious potential legal liability, your prescriber may require additional testing to confirm your diagnosis before prescribing stimulant medication. Talk with your Purple Wellness provider for more information.
