Our ADHD treatment process in four steps

Creating an ADHD treatment plan unique to you.

  1. Diagnosis & mental health evaluation

    Without a diagnosis, ADHD can be a serious barrier to reaching your full potential.

    Our clinicians know how to properly diagnose ADHD without adding unnecessary steps to the diagnosis process that make things more expensive.

    To learn more about our diagnosis services, read Frida's ADHD Diagnosis Process.

  2. Personalized treatment plan

    Once diagnosed, your Frida clinician will work with you to create a comprehensive treatment plan.

    If prescribed medication, you’ll be guided through finding the type and dose that feels right for you, taking into account any other conditions — such as depression or anxiety — where medication could help as well.

  3. Titration process

    Your clinician will work closely with you to find the optimal dose of medication to maximize benefits and minimize side effects.

    1. Your Frida clinician will recommend the medication they think is best for you. 

    2. You will be prescribed a low dose to get you started. 

    3. After two weeks, they will speak with you again by phone to see how things are going, and potentially adjust your dose.  

    4. They will continue to speak with you by phone and through secure messages every 2-4 weeks until you both believe the medication is working well for you.

  4. Stabilization

    Once you are doing well on a particular dose and both you and the clinician are happy, you will be moved to the stabilization stage where you will:

    • Continue to be prescribed the same dose, delivered on time.

    • Have phone check-ins with your clinician every 3 months.

    • Have unlimited messaging with our clinical team.

Medications prescribed online, delivered to your door

Frida prescribes all medications recommended in the Canadian ADHD practice guidelines for ADHD, anxiety, and depression. 

Long-acting ADHD stimulants & non-stimulants

ADHD can be treated with either stimulant or non-stimulant medications.



While there is more evidence for the use and effectiveness of stimulant medications based on clinical research, your clinician needs to take many factors into consideration when prescribing the medication that is right for you.

Anxiety & depression medications

ADHD is often present with other mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression.


Sometimes treating ADHD with medication is enough to manage these additional mental health issues, but sometimes additional medications and/or non-medication-based strategies are required.

Your Frida clinician will do their best to navigate any additional mental health concerns with you, including these additional medications if they are required.

FAQ about ADHD treatments

How is my treatment plan decided?

Your clinician will balance a number of factors including the severity of your symptoms, your medical history, and any other health conditions you may be contributing to your symptoms. There is no one size fits all approach.

Does Frida prescribe medications?

Frida prescribes all medications recommended in the Canadian ADHD practice guidelines. If medication is part of your treatment plan, there is no one size fits all - your clinician will recommend medication(s) based on a variety of factors.

If you have anxiety and/or depression (which are common in people with ADHD), your clinician will create a holistic treatment plan, and will also prescribe medication for these conditions.

Which medication will I be prescribed?

If you are prescribed medication, your clinician will recommend the medication they think is best for you. This depends on your medical history, symptoms, and unique circumstances. There is no one size fits all approach.

You also may be prescribed non-ADHD medications for example for anxiety or depression if your clinician believes these are what you need.

Not everyone is prescribed medication.

How does the medication titration process work?

Titration is a process where your clinician works closely with you to find the optimal dose of medication to maximize benefits and minimize side effects.

  1. Your Frida clinician will recommend the medication they think is best for you. 

  2. You will be prescribed a low dose to get you started. 

  3. After two weeks, they will speak with you again by phone to see how things are going, and potentially adjust your dose.  

  4. They will continue to speak with you by phone and through secure messages every 2-4 weeks until you both believe the medication is working well for you.

Do ADHD medications have the potential for misuse/abuse?

The medications that treat ADHD have the potential for misuse and abuse, however, there is no evidence that suggests using stimulant medications as prescribed for ADHD increases your risk of developing substance use disorders (source).

You will have consistent check-ins with our care team to make sure that the prescribed dosage is working for you.

How can Frida help me save money on medication?

There are two ways we can help you save, depending on the medication your clinician has prescribed:

1. Generic medication (e.g. generic Adderall)

Frida has developed a financial assistance program to reduce the cost of some generic medications. 

Every Frida patient who is prescribed generic medication for their treatment plan is able to use Frida financial assistance, regardless of their insurance status or income. There is no need to apply; you are automatically enrolled.

2. Branded medication (e.g. Vyvanse or Adderall)

Your Frida care coordinator will help you find and access co-pay assistance programs developed by pharmaceutical manufacturers that help you save.

Which medications can Frida help lower the cost of?

We can help you lower the cost for almost all the first-line recommended treatments for ADHD in Canada, as per the Canadian ADHD Practice Guidelines:

  • Adderall

  • Biphentin

  • Concerta

  • generic Adderall

  • Vyvanse

We cannot help you lower the cost of Foquest at this point in time.

What will my cost of medication be after co-pay assistance?

While it depends on the medication you are prescribed and whether you have private insurance, most people with private insurance pay no more than $10 per month.

Most people without private insurance pay $75 per month.

How does Frida's financial assistance program for generic medications work?

If a generic medication is prescribed, a Frida-affiliated pharmacist will call you to discuss how Frida's financial assistance will lower the cost for you. People with private insurance usually pay a maximum of $10 per month.

Frida has been able to create this program by working directly with the pharmaceutical industry to get them to invest in financial aid programs.

Does Frida provide therapy?

Frida is currently developing behavioral management resources, including self-directed and group therapy programs organized by Frida clinicians.

These non-medication treatment programs will be announced shortly.

Access to these programs will be free with all Frida subscriptions.
