I am using dexamphetamine 5 mg tablets (6 per day for a couple of years) and they help me study [i lived in australia] and have now moved over to study at byu hawaii. Please let me know how i get a prescription over under us health laws etc!!Who must i see to qualify (a doctor? Or must i see a psychologist? Or a psychiatrist? ) then is it approved or what is the process to be then able to go to a pharmacy to get my prescription? And does the doctor give you a 6mth repeat supply? Or do i ring them to send me another one out or must i go there every mth or whatever to pick it up? I have a psychiatrists letter from australia with my dosage, treatment, diagnosis etc, and family history so thats not a problem, i dont know how to do anything else?
To be honest I am not sure either. It is good that you have letters. I think the best thing to do is to make an appointment with a doctor (maybe the university has one on campus) and discuss the process. Don't worry it will be fine. Every country has different laws and ways of doing things when it comes to supplying of medicines. A doctors visit is your best first starting point.
