Default Your Adderall script question

The FDA site says; "Because stimulant medicines have a high potential for abuse, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has placed stringent controls on them. For example, the DEA requires special licenses to manufacture, distribute, and prescribe these controlled substances, and prescription refills aren't allowed."

Does that mean you guys have to go back to the doc every 3 weeks to get a new prescription?

The Controlled Substances Act of 1970 states that prescriptions for C-II drugs (that includes amphetamines such as Adderal) must be in WRITING (can't be phoned in like all other legal drugs can) and can NOT have any refills. A new WRITTEN prescription would be required for every fill.

This doesn't mean that a doctor has to see you every single time before giving you a prescription.

Back before my mother got a knee replacement she was on methadone for her severe arthritis pain. That would be another C-II drug. The doc who wrote those prescriptions saw her twice a year. Since her insurance plan at the time had the prescriptions filled by a pharmacy in Texas she was able to get a 90-day supply at once (270 pills in her case). Federal law doesn't put any limit on how much of a C-II drug can be dispensed at a time -- and obviously Texas law didn't limit it or the limit was as high or higher than what she got.

States are free to be more restrictive than federal law if they wish. New Jersey, for example, limits C-II drugs to a 30 day supply or 120 dosage units, which ever is less. This presented a real problem to chronic pain patients for whom 120 5 mg tablets of oxycodone may be only a 3 day supply. Such dosage unit limits are nonsensical -- since it counts a 5 mg tablet of oxycodone the same as an 80 mg OxyContin, even though one contains 16 times as much of the same drug!

I've heard of cases where doctors give chronic pain patients multiple prescriptions that are post dated -- one for today, one dated a month from now, and another dated 2 months from now so the doc doesn't have to play this idiotic monthly game.

Thanks for the clarifcation UltraShy. If someone had to see a doctor every 3weeks, I know I'd go broke. I am trying to find a way to see a Pdoc, as my isurance doesn't cover it. Actually it seems to be hard finding insurance to cover pdoc's.

At any rate, hows your quest for adderall?

Lacking the energy to do anything about it at the moment. And I'd want generic immediate release dextroamphetamine, not Adderall.

I don't get any repeats for my Adderall xr but I get repeats for other CII drugs.

Your doctor is not allowed to give any refills on C-II prescriptions. However they are allowed to write up to 3 prescriptions, each for a months supply, at once so long as they put the appropriate dates on them and don't post date them. C-II prescriptions have three months before expiration so writing three scripts allows for three months between doctors visits at least to get the C-II script

I gotta see my pdoc every 2 to 3 weeks, all the time. I've gotten use to it. I'm about to start Adderall again and am pretty happy. : )

Yeah that is gay. I'm lucky. I live within 5 minutes driving distance to my doctor, and 5 minutes to my pharmacy. So, when I get my dexedrine 10mg tabs it's not much of a hassle.

The DEA is "protecting" you by forcing you to drive 24 hours a year just to get a pill (I'm assuming you do this monthly). You might wish to tell your federal legislators just how much you enjoy their protection and wasting a full day every year.
