Alex Says:

I've had adhd since childhood and it has gotten increasingly worse. I've tried EVERYTHING and found that only these two medications really work. My doctor dropped me due to something regarding Obamacare and I NEED to have my prescriptions refilled! These drugs have literally brought my life back to normal! Please tell me of a doctor who understands the severity of the condition and will prescribe the right medications somewhere in Southwest Florida.

The irony. They love their guns in Florida, don't they? There's no background check needed to purchase a gun in many cases. The second amendment, you know. If you feel someone is looking at you funny, you can "stand your ground" and take his or her life. Easy, peasy, hey? What do guns do? They kill.

What do medications do? They help us live normal lives if we have problems. Background checks? I've read that doctors can just, willy, nilly, stop your medication because they think you may be doing something illegal with it. The think you may be doing something illegal. Pharmacies can refuse to sell you medications if they feel like it; medications that might make your life livable. Then there's the databases for meds (but no background checks for gun purchases). Every pharmacy can check every other pharmacy to make sure you didn't sell that one adderall you may have left. Background checks?

I really hate to bring politics into this, but Rick Scott and his Republican legislature don't believe in government interference, right? After all, we don't like nanny states, do we? Their vision is very clear when someone wants to buy a killing machine, but gets a little cloudy when someone, like me, needs adderall or norco.

Gun vendors never have to worry about their licenses being taken away, do they? Doctors and pharmacists do, though.

What the f*** is wrong with this picture? Guns great, medicine bad.

Has anyone else thought of this angle? Our nation is in big, big trouble. A couple of days ago, Trump said if there were bullets going in "both directions", the slaughter in Paris would have been avoided or lessened. Yeah, bullets flying all over the place.

I'm not digressing. But if someone "stands their ground" and kills four or five people, he gets to go home and eat pot roast that same night. The police didn't even question Zimmerman. He said he was standing his ground and they said, "Oh. OK." He was vindicated for murdering an unarmed teen-age boy. But try to get schedule 2 meds and you feel like the criminal that Zimmerman is.

However, *****s cheer for Trump and he'll be our next president. He'll probably personally hand out guns to people while Congress will outlaw birth control pills, schedule 2 meds and will put another insurance company in place that you have to pay before you pay the first insurance company to buy overpriced medications and see paranoid doctors. Neither insurance company will have the med you need on its formulary, so the extensive paper work and begging begins.

Yeah, universal health care will come between you and your doctor while guns will save lives. I know, I'm repeating myself, but I have to take a U/A because I take adderall. I moved here from California which taxes you to death so I can afford to live and it ends up that the "keep your government hands off my medicare" republicans run Florida with the intention of lining their pockets without regard to the harm they do to people. F*** Florida, Rick Scott and his legislature. By the way, I moved here because I'm 66 years old and retired. I'm now on what they call a fixed income. It's inexpensive and warm. I'm retired. I just don't have the money to move to every state in the union until I find one without politicians who are mentally challenged and/or greedy.

Detailed enough?

Please dispense actual advice on the health topic question and not on your personal uninformed bias and incorrect statements about guns. I get it, you don't get it. Keep it to yourself or at least get informed. Background check is needed on every financial transaction with a gun and drugs kill just as well as drugs because they are inert unless a human uses them.

This is really tough for those of us who actually need our medication and take it as prescribed. Apparently there's an epidemic of crazies taking this medicine who don'[t need it. At least according to the last 2 doctors I've seen. Personally I have never met anyone who has taken Adderall besides me! And I take it exactly as prescribed. I've never even heard of someone ODing or doing anything crazy on Adderall lol.

Florida psychiatrists are notoriously bad. They are either uneducated or paranoid or both. All the good ones are busy taking care of the very rich and charging out the butt. So to get a prescription you better be willing to drop a couple thousand dollars up front and a couple hundred a month JUST for the script OR spend days (and I mean literal days of time) finding a decent Psychiatrist. Don't give up guys!

I realize this is 3 years old but most "doctors" are more interested in saving their own hides by tucking tale from the government than helping people in need. Fortunately I found a Neurologist willing to treat my ADHD. He also referred me to a Neuropsychiatrist who will help manage my Bipolor meds. Try to find someone who actually cares stay far away from clinical psychiatrists and those dealing with criminal or addiction psychiatry. They are brain damaged.

Obama screwed everything up for sure, big government are on irrelevant witch hunts to try and make themselves relevant to the public.

Try a good Neurologist or a Neuropsychiatrist who specializes in ADHD.

God bless.

Hey, in the same boat, from MI & I'm here. Just have the doc send it electronically to your closest walgreens or chain you use. Mine did it and I'm picking mine up-in fact my insurance might cover it.

I live in Michigan as well. I was curious how to have your doctor write an electronic script because both my psychiatrist and primary psychician are such a pain trying to get ahold of which makes it so stressful

Find a good Neurologist or a Psychiatrist that deals specifically with ADD. Don't bother with general psychiatrists as they are utterly useless.

No it's common to most doctors in Florida now. I'm about to research what the problem is.

One is Obamacare. It scared half of our good physicians out of the field, they retired early rather than deal with the ensuing beurocratic mess and the cleanup is going to be a long hard road.

The next problem is that the federal government recently did a huge bust in Florida taking away a lot of doctors licenses for prescribing Adderall in an amount that they deemed to be too much. I learned this straight from my federal prob. officer. So I think she knows what she's talking about.

So in essence you have the bloated government and the worst president since Bush to thank for keeping you out of a decent life.

My best advice to you is to keep trying and searching and think smart and don't give up. Try a neurologist, they usually know more than crazy psychiatrists.

Most of all trust in Jesus Christ and contributions that is the only way to get any real help.

My doctor, one day a cpl months ago, just started the electronic script..the federal gov under Obamacare recently changed things. Normally, making you pick up a paper script, doctors are now encouraged to send electronic script to your fav pharmacy. It's safer for the doc, pharmacy, and easier on the patient. Less judging as well. MI is ahead in this dept and FL seems to like getting the electronic versions-I think they feel your a safer bet and I have not had a prob filling it twice here so far. Primary care docs in MI only need you to have an evaluation by your psych, once. I had come from Colo where my pscych transferred my records. Anyways the MI doc takes care of the script every month. No need for a re-evaluate, for years, if at all. Cali & Colo, probobly FL too, are different in that you must see a psychi who writes your script every month, or three. MI speeds up the process & realizes that ADD is a lifetime battle, no absolute final cure, so they help by simply giving the medication, and many currently like mine via electronic script, you need to get on with life..written by your primary doc after your evaluated by a psychiatrist. Out of all these states I have found MI most helpful-and coming from the west it really surprised me. Good luck all and keep searching for the understanding doctor who will help.

Yeah some states override Fed mandates or find clever ways to work around them and that's great. Others are to scared of the Feds.

Unfortunately I don't think it's possible for these people to move and our main problem was the getting established part. I went through 3 months and 3 ER visits before I could even find a Dr who KNEW about ADHD and was willing to treat.

If you move to FL make sure you have good records IN HAND and find a specialist.
