One question I have is what do I tell the doctor my address is when filling out paper work? If i would receive any sort of mail, I cannot use my home address. I was thinking about just getting a PO box?
Anyways, i would not be able to go through insurance so I want to get a prescription as quickly as possible. Now, another friend that is prescribed adderall told me that his doctor would prescribe it to me, but i didnt really talk to him about it to see how long it would take or anything. What would be the best thing to say to the doctor?
I was thinking about just saying when I was middle school i was prescribed ritalin, but stopped taking it because it made me depressed and irritable. Id also say that I constantly find myself spacing off (which is true). Like I read a couple pages in a book, and realize i have no idea what i read and have to go back and reread it, sometimes multiple times. Also I constantly space off in class, and even during tests.
What about saying that I was talking to a friend and he said he switched from ritalin to adderall and that the adderall lasted longer and didn't have any side effects?
Do you think saying i took ritalin would make him want to prescribe a non-stimulant?
Any suggestions on what to say? I really can't afford to go to a psychiatrist multiple times just to get a prescription, or pay hundreds for a ADD test.
