I am having sooo much trouble with my dependence on methlylphenidate immediate release. My husband and I both are having this issue, and now it is Wednsday Nov 23rd, and I am leaving from Phoenix to visit my family in Columbus Ohio for the holiday. I tried really hard to make sure we had enough medicine to make it thru the trip, but am finding that we are cutting it close. I don't know what to do. I can't let it run out, because when I run out I sleep uncontrollably for days and I am frightened. I know I could go to a urgent care or ER, but there is little chance they wil prescribe it and I have no clue what to do! I have dealt with substance abuse issues for my entire life, and never was a person who liked any kind of stimulant. I am 35, and this just started less than 2 years ago when I was diagnosed with ADHD. My diagnosis was Severe Depression Recurrent and Generalized anxiety disorder, but my psyche changed it. There is no way my doctor will prescribe early. I don't want to break the law, but I am desperate. Please, anybody with advice, I am struggling. Also, I have been a member now for a month or so and have found this to be an extremely helpful place to gain knowledge and insight. Everyone has been so nice and helpful and I am happy to be part of this wonderful family. Thank you... Jewels480

Well my dear, I did not know what this was for so read up on it a bit, am surprised you are on it as it ways if you have had substance abuse problems you shouldn't even be on it, but if your doctor feels it's best than... I would call & have a heart to heart with the doctor immediately. Tell him you are leaving town for the Holiday & won't have enough to cover for the entire trip. You may be surprised he may give you a new script for a few days worth. It's worth a try. What if they have storms or something back in Ohio & you get stuck there for a few days? Never plan a trip without getting these things covered first. Please call your doctor & tell him of this situation & please read the info I am providing about your med. Hope this helps you...
