I am sure most MD's or Psychiatrists would not be willing to write my prescription of 3 30mg IR adderall and 5 2mg xanax daily. I have taken both medications for quite sometime and my Psych Dr is retiring. I dont know what to do and I dont know pharmacy laws at all. Should I have her write me for 3 months worth of adderall? I know she can give me refills on the xanax but I have one last time to see her and its coming up in a week or so. I have school and last semester when we had the great adderall shortage I stopped going to school and didnt do so well. Please if anyone has any expertise in this field it would be helpful. PS. I can not take XR medication. It stays in my system way too long. Please help! Thank you so much!
Hello allwrappedUP. I understand your delema. It happens more often than one might think. Adderall is as you know a controlled substance (Schedule II). You are not allowed refills and you need a new perscription. The norm is month to month. I believe some states it might be three. I'd have the prescription if your psychiatrist is as you said willing you are able to have the Adderall filled for the three months, do so. And most important get a referall to psychiatrist that will take over where your present one is leaving. Best of wishes and hope it works out for you,pledge
I'm in the same boat you are - my psychiatrist is retiring and wrote me 3 adderall prescriptions until I can find a new psychiatrist. I'm not sure a new psychiatrist would be willing to prescribe me the usual adderall xr30 3 per day. Just went to walgreens and they didn't refill - said they tried to call doctor and no answer. I'm at a loss. You're not by any chance from Chicago?
Hi there, I am So glad i came across your question/conversation because i am in almost the same situation. I am 33 year old female and the doctor, my family physician, prescribes stimulants for my Narcolepsy and she is retiring in 2 months... and i cannot find another doctor that is willing to take over and prescribe the level of stimulant medication that i am taking. i take Ritalin and Vyvanse daily just to keep me functional. Mayo Clinic confirmed the diagnosis and added that i am an "A-Typical" case of Narcolepsy that is resistant to stimulant medication and therefore requires me to take extremely high doses. I have went through 5 different physicians so far, and i am 0 for 5, no luck... but i was wondering if i should be asking my psychiatrist to prescribe these medications??? i haven't done that, do you think i should? any help anyone could give me would be GREATLY appreciated!!
