    So after moving across the country and not having a doctor for 2 months, I FINALLY GOT MY FOCALIN (dexmethylphenidate- an isomer of ritalin) AND VYVANSE (lysexamphetamine) BACK!! I am so stoked, it has been wayyy too long without them!

    Anyway, enough of my shouts of joy- My new doctor is either stupid or VERY nice, but she gave me a month's worth of Vyvanse (30 70mg) and close to 2 month's worth of the focalin (60 imediate release 10mg)-- ALL WITHOUT ANY PROOF OF A MEDICAL HISTORY ADHD/ADD.

    Granted, I actually do have adhd and I have had the diagnosis since freshman year in high school... but the fact of the matter is that ANYONE who is a half decent "actor" could stroll into the office and walk away with a shitton of STRONG stimulants.

    I've never had to change doctors and I'm not familiar with the entire process of it, but is it really normal to- without any proof of being perscribed stimulants in the past- walk away with 2 scripts for schedual 2 drugs after your first visit?

    I've been on those meds for years, i just didn't have any proof of it WITH ME. My question was asking if it's common practice for a doctor to write out two schedual 2 perscriptions on the first visit without SEEING the proof that you've been on them in the past.... because it seems like that would leave a lot of room open to fakers, drug abusers, and such.

    ^^^ i agree with you here i just didnt realize alot of people were after those particular drugs. you usually hear people going after opiates and benzos

    True... but abuse potential for stimulants are very high- especially in academia. Idk.
