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.

I always thought Florida laws were very lax. I know a woman in Orange Park who stockpiles Xanax - gets a refill once a month with no problem. I thought the same was true with Adderall. It's this I-STOP crap and the sharing of information between the states that was never the case before - it's the future, folks. Get used to it.

I was getting my ADD meds (adderall) from a nurse practitioner in Baltimore. She sadly passed away and her office staff and physicians she worked under are not helping her patients get continued care. Any suggestions for a practitioner who will prescribe ADD meds to an adult in Tampa?

They run reports on every patient through a doctor shopping network. It shows recent Rx’s where it was filled, how many refills and who prescribed it.

If you paid via credit card then contest the charge with your cc company. Seek a neurologist NOT a psychiatrist, psychiatrists are wack job witch doctors with no real skill. Neurologists are proper scientists and doctors. this is a common mistake of ppl with neurological disorders, they believe they MUST see one of these over charging loons in order to get help.

Also ask a general practitioner they re usually willing to help until you find a good neurologist.

I see this is an old post, I am going through the same problem here. I self payed $250.00 for an appt; all medical records transferred, my doctor from Colo personal home number, and was told "We don't do that round here." What?! Total of 2 minutes and refused to refund my money. The amount they want to charge for a Psychiatrist is insane. I have been written up 2x now at work for not paying attention to detail. I feel horrible...

Is Dr Dudney a cool...easy going psychiatrist that will give ritalin and mood stabilizers? I am trying to get a appointment with him now. Does anybody know if when they run your name for red flags like with docs and pharmacies does it show nationwide or statewide in Florida? Dr Dudney does do ketAmin therapy for depression iv even....so he sounds cool. Is he besides the insurance thing? Please answer ANYONE since he charges 310 dollars for initial appointment and I want to leave set up. My add is driving me crazy and so is my depression!!!!

So what doctor in the Tampa Bay area did you find that will prescribe Ritalin or something like that like Adderall? Weird thing is for me Ritalin is the only one ADHD medication that works.

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.

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.

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.

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