Adult ADD in the UK. Is it worth getting diagnosed? What is the best route to getting a diagnosis and does medication actually help?

My partner has adult ADD and when he described the symptoms I recognised myself as if I was looking in a mirror. I've browsed the web quite a lot and tried various checklist which all seem to indicate that I could have it. My partner tried medication but rejected it because it affected his writing. I also work in a creative job, where my odd way of working seems to benefit me quite a lot - though some of the bureaucratic aspects stress me beyond all reason. I'm wondering whether it's worth seeing whether I have ADD or not. I've looked around various sites but they all point to going to your GP and I don't think mine would take it seriously. I wondered what other people's experiences were?
