Best Med For Me

So I have recently begun seeking treatment for ADD and was officially diagnosed after a month long process where I was first brought in for screening, testing, and eventually saw the psychologist who diagnosed me with add.

He has since referred me to the in house psychiatrist practice with whom he shares space and I am going in tomorrow to talk with them about starting medication trials to treat my ADD.

In researching all of the medications out there I am really left with no clear conclusion about which one to start out with. I have one friend who has found great success with adderoll and so I am inclined to ask the doctor for that. I did admit in my testing that I smoked pot a (and enjoyed it) a few years back and hope that this won't steer the doctor to prescribe me one of the nonstimulant add meds that from everything I have read seem to be significant;y less effective than the more traditional amphetimine based drugs.

That was a diatribe, any suggestions, input, advice?
