IPN-ADHD testing

Posted

Has anyone done the objective ADHD testing required by the IPN to continue adderall or any other ADHD medication?

Was it expensive?

What was the outcome?

Did you have to go twice, where?

Did it slow the process of being cleared to return to work?

Jeez, a doctors's prescription and signed note isn't enough? That's horrible.

No.. And I've taken adderall for 14 yrs and it's well documented and managed. They are making me try Strattera for a few months and if it doesn't work I have to do the objective testing before being cleared to work. It's not working and the Strattera is $700 a month!!

Ask your case manager for the names of the docs. Just give the doctor offices a call. They will give you the cost. Keep in mind, most of the professionals IPN will send you too have "special" IPN pricing. It is more expensive and IPN may decide not to let you use private insurance for the evaluation.

How did they find out you take it? Personally I don't think it's BON's business. I know several nurses with ADHD who take Adderall who never reported.

And, sorry you're going through this.

I'm in the process of signing an IPN contract for marihuana use.. im not in trouble for the adderall but to continue it under contract really makes things expensive and takes FOREVER to get approved!

Ohhhh, ok. Gotcha. Here for you regardless, I know meds are very important. I would be going crazy. The difference of being medicated for ADHD and not is night and day.
