... prescribed me adderall 10 mg 2 times a day and to be honest I am much more organized, I tend to pay attention longer and I am able to comprehend what I hear instead of drifting off into space. If I switch doctors will I be able to still be able to continue taking the adderall???

Did your Neurologist provide you with a written assessment of your diagnosis? If not, ask him for a copy of whatever notes he took or tests he conducted to determine dx. If he didn't do either, just ask for a copy of your medical records. Then, I'd make an appt. with a good Psychiatrist, and take your records, tests, prescription bottle or the next written Rx. you get from him. Also, a Pharmacist can write out your Rx. history for you, just for the Psych. to see how long you've taken it. All of that should be sufficient for the new Dr. to continue prescribing your Adderall. Don't think you'll have a problem. If you do, worst case scenario is you'll have to take an assessment and/or discuss symptoms with Psych. for him/her to determine that it's helping you & is probably the right med for you. Good luck!

If you are unhappy with your present physician, by all means seek a new one! As for your rx, unless you are experiencing adverse effects, there should be no reason you can't keep taking it. A good doc will be able to give you the proper care and treatment. Find a doc you are comfortable with and, if needed, sign a request for medical records and ask the office staff to fax the request to the old doc to get copies of everything. Pharmacy records may be helpful, but bottom line is only a doc can give all pertinent medical info to another doc. Of course, old medical office records aren't necessary for meds to be prescribed. Best wishes!
