... adderall 20mg(u would think that its there own supply the way the r with them) i had all test done i was on them in new jersey than philadelphia pa but doctor just passed any sugguestions?
if your old doc just died, all of your recods are available for you to pick up or have them sent to a new doc. when my dad died, he was a doc, either patients or other docs needing the medical records could just write (with a release of records) or you could call to find out where the records are... and go there and pick them up. That way you should have no problem getting your medications from the new doc without jumping through hoops.
Much good luck to you sweetie,
The sweet Hippie,
When I moved from Virginia to Texas in 2000, I did not think I needed my medication anymore. After two years of disorganization and two car wrecks in less than two months, I decided to go back on Adderall. Unfortunately my Dr. in Virginia still kept records on paper and nothing was backed up. They had a very bad storm and flooding in 2001 and he had lost his practice along with my medical records. I basically looked through our yellow pages for a Psychiatrist that treated adults with ADHD and found one I really liked. I called and made a consultation visit that was about $350.00 and he did some basic testing and question asking. The questions and test where both flash card type test and reciting things he had mention earlier. There was also some computer test similar to the ones on Luminosity. After the initial consultation, I was put on two 20 mg Adderall daily. He also tried me on some anxiety SSRI's because I was depressed that my mother had just recently passed away, but I am allergic to something in either the formulas of the medication or the fact that it screwed with my serotonin. I tried six and all caused a rash and some swelling. He then put me on 20 mgs of Valium and that was in 2002. He warned me that if I started the Valium, I would most likely be on it for the rest of my life. Ultimately he worked for the V.A. Hospital and did private practice on Wednesday through Friday evenings. It became too much of him and he closed his private practice.
I found a new Psychaitrist in Austin and my old one sent me a letter of reference. It still cost me another $250.00 out of pocket for a new consultation fee, but this Dr. is really good. Since seeing him every three months since my other Dr. quit his private practice locally, my medication has changed slightly. I take two 30 mg immediate release tablets daily. Although I usually take one in the morning and a half one at lunch. Some days I do take both, but I try not to take too much . My Valium was increased to up to 30 mg as needed daily, but I usually have some of these left over as well. Been on this crap for ten years now and I wish I did not have to be.
I would suggest that you find a good Psychaitrist in your area taking patients, which that is the hard part. I just got lucky that my current Dr. was taking new patients at the time and you will most likely have to do a consultation. It will be costly, but it is worth it if you do have ADD and your honest and answer the questions, he should be able to diagnose you as having ADD or ADHD just by talking to you and doing some exercises, or tests.
They are extremely strict on these Meds as they are Schedule II and widely abused. We had some renovations to our home in 2010 where a carpenter or worker stole my meds. I had to call my Dr., he then had to report it to the DEA and I had to pay out of pocket for about half of a three months supply. Here in Texas at the end of each year, they get low on the amount available as I think the FDA only allows so much to be produced each year. If you are trying to get them for recreational use, and I am in no way implying that you are, save your money because these Drs. are not easily fooled and are smart enough to know if you need these medications or if you are just trying to get them to get high. If any of your immediate family has ADD that will help. They might go to consultation with you and this will help as well. If you can't get copies of your records it's hard to find a Psychiatrist who is taking new patients especially if you are out of state. My primary care Dr. will not even write prescriptions for these meds. I think state law here mandates a Psychiatric evaluation and regular visits to a Psychaitrist. He has really helped me overcome some serious barriers and adjust to about as normal of a life as someone with Anxiety disorder and ADD can have.
