Psychiatrists have wildly varying opinions about what constitutes the correct approach to medication for a patient with a given set of symptoms. Patients are at the whims of their providers in even believing whether they have a condition that they definitively know they have, and in obtaining medication that authoritative scientific sources deem first-line treatment.
People who do their own research on neurodivergence hit a wall when they bring the fruits of their studies into the psychiatric office. Knowledge in that case is often seen as a marker of "drug-seeking behavior". It is interesting to note that one's entire reason in going to a medication provider's office is to seek drugs, yet this obsequious language still gets used to frame people with knowledge about treatment options as goons looking for a buzz.
