replacement for ADHD meds
#1
ok, my friend who i live with sufferers from ADHD, having recently moved here he has just registered with a doctor and applied for a visit to a psychiatrist. the problem is the first date that he can get a appointment is the end of next month and he only has enough tablets for the next few days, a week max, i was wondering if i could order him any RC's that have the same effects the help him concentrate through his uni course until then.

currently taking
5mg dexamfetamine sulphate X2 three times daily


many thanks in advance

I dont know which RCs would be best but caffine worked for this guy. Skip to 3.00 for the awesome song.

Theres seems to be plenty info on treatment with caffine around aswell.

he has tried caffiene, he says it kinda helps but it doesnt give the clearheadedness he needs, and if he takes enough to get the clear head he just gets jittery and cant accurately use the moddeling software on his computer,

anyone have any experienced with modalert? and any idea on dosage, mainly theraputic for him and recreational for me

Are you in the UK?

If so, can your friend not make an emergency appointment with the GP & get another prescription?

In my area, even when a patient has only just registered, there is no way that if their prescribed medication was going to run out, that they wouldn't be able to get more prescribed by another doctor, whether GP or local hospital.

I have no knowledge how things work in other countries I'm afraid, but can give you more information if you're in the UK
This.....is real life

Modalert works fine keeping you up but I wouldnt recommend it as a sub for Ritalin which is on prescription. As tralala says he can get a new script same day in the UK.

im in the UK yes, i think the doctors are fobbing him off to be honest, he got a letter yesterday saying his appointment was at the end of next month. he's off to his gp today to see what can be done about it.

i think the problem is that he has been given 6 months supply from his mum, and instead of doing the smart thing and seeing the gp before they were going to run out, he waited till he had 12 left before making a appointment. so he hasnt been collecting his script, could also be because he has come over from ireland so. i don't know

does anyone have a link to a shop selling modalert in the uk? all the pharmacies i have looked at seem to ship from china, i'm not keen on the idea of ordering strips of pills and trying to get them through customs

ADHD is a serious condition and should not treated with amateur pharmacology of any kind, never mind research chemicals.

Leave it to the professionals.

i really would mate, but its not very nice living with someone going through amphetamine withdrawl, and they are moody as hell, just hoping to help, ill get him on 500mgs of caffiene for the time being and see if it helps anything. hopefully i can find a tempoary measure untill he can get to a specialist

There is a whole thread including vendors on modalert here

I wouldn't use it as a replacement for Ritalin though as I said before. Still better you know the information etc...

I think your friend is having it on a bit. If your friend is taking his medication exactly as prescribed, the only negative side effect he should experience once he runs out of meds is the return of his ADHD symptoms. I know this because I have ADHD myself.

Do you know how your friends diagnosis/treatment was being handled?
NHS Clinic w/ NHS scripts
Private + GP Shared Care w/ NHS scripts
Private w/ private scripts

Depending on which of the above is applicable for him, he should be able to simply contact his clinic, gp or private psychiatrist and explain the situation and get a new script.

Your advice still applies regardless, but he's not on Ritalin.
Ritalin = Methylphenidate
Dexedrine = Dexamfetamine
