November 1, 2019 Reply Dyke Ultra If my doctor hands me a prescription but don’t have the time to fully explain how it works and what the side effects are or how it can interact with my other conditions and medications, I ask someone at the pharmacy before taking it out or search for reliable and official sources on the internet for information. Doctors can make mistakes or make light of the dangers. If they prescribe strong medications to patients on a regular basis, they may not realize “that is actually a dangerous drug that could put someone’s life in danger in some circumstances”. Don’t be paranoid of doctors, but don’t put blind trust in professionals. Some are actually so busy that they would rather use prescriptions as a short cut rather than going through other options first. Make informed decisions and take care.

November 1, 2019 Reply Jacki ChemSlave I was addicted to adderall. Near the end I was taking 120 to 150 mg a day (time released). I was also addicted to klonopin and hydrocodone. One day I took 150 mg adderall and 10 norco (around 100 mg hydrocodone). I spaced the doses out so I thought I would be fine (lol). Ended up having a seizure. My bf said that my heart stopped. I obviously don’t remember. All I remember is waking up in the back of a paramedic truck. That’s what finally made me choose to work on recovery.

However, given what’s available for Drs TO DO such as labs and screening questionnaires they should ALL require that of patients who might need treatment, and often find that it’s not even ADD that’s causing the patients’ problems but depression and anxiety and other underlying issues that need treated. And with the very stringent laws and monitoring of any controlled prescription now those Drs who do over-prescribe should lose their controlled substance license so they can’t.
