Remote ADHD treatment that delivers real results
Following your self-assessment, a Frida clinician will call you for a full diagnostic assessment to confirm if you have ADHD.
Your Frida clinician will work alongside you to create a personalized treatment plan, which may include medication.
If prescribed medication, you’ll meet with a clinician every 4 to 8 weeks to discuss your progress, refill your prescription, and potentially adjust your dose.
Once you're happy with how your treatment makes you feel, you'll keep receiving the same dose, and meet with a clinician every 3 to 6 months.
Having the chance to talk to someone at Frida about my life experiences and having someone support me in figuring out what I’ve been going through has been affirming and eye-opening. Contrary to my expectations, receiving an ADHD diagnosis has given me power in my life.”
The team at Frida have been so fantastic on my ADHD journey so far. From listening to my struggles and concerns during my initial diagnosis, to making sure I get the treatment that works for me, I’m so glad I found them. If you want a friendly, helpful and compassionate group of people to help you on your journey then I highly recommend Frida!
Having experienced ADHD symptoms as a child, I wanted to reassess my condition as an adult. My friend recommended Frida to me, and I'm so grateful! The clinicians and the support team helped me understand and find the proper treatment for my diagnosis in an efficient and effective manner. I would highly recommend Frida.
After years of struggling with symptoms I didn’t fully understand, the wonderful health care practitioners at Frida have not only given me affirming answers but have also developed an effective and patient-led treatment plan that has me seeing positive results in only a matter of weeks. I have felt supported every step of the way, and would fully recommend this clinic to anyone who is struggling with ADHD symptoms.
I have had a great experience with Frida. They have been very helpful throughout the medication process and seem to really care about getting everything just right while remaining cautious about side effects!

FAQs about Frida's ADHD treatment
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.
How often will I meet with my clinician?
It's up to you how often you meet with your clinician. The ideal timeframe depends on where you're at in your treatment.
After you’ve completed your initial assessment and been prescribed treatment from your Frida clinician, it's recommended you meet with your clinician monthly to ensure your treatment is going well, or if your treatment plan requires changes.
Once you've reached an ideal dose with your treatment, you should continue to meet your clinician every 3 months.
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.
Your Frida clinician will recommend the medication they think is best for you.
You will be prescribed a low dose to get you started.
After two weeks, they will speak with you again by phone to see how things are going and potentially adjust your dose.
They will continue to speak with you by phone and through secure messages every 4 weeks until you both believe the medication is working well for you.
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.
Are medication deliveries available everywhere?
Unfortunately, Frida is unable to deliver medications outside of the Greater Calgary and Greater Toronto areas for the time being.
Our regional couriers were not meeting the standards we set out and as such, Affirming Care Pharmacy is working to find a new regional shipping solution that provides a better patient experience. We hope to resume deliveries for all patients in the future.
Patients that live outside of the Greater Calgary and Great Toronto areas will now receive their ADHD medications from their local pharmacy.
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.
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.
