Reply To: It started with phentermine


I just happened upon this site after Google search for ADD meds. So happy I did. Stories so familiar. I cannot find a physician willing to treat my ADD. I’m made to feel like a junkie. I started taking Phentermine and for the first time in my life I felt “normal.” This led to a diagnosis of ADD. I have been taking Adderall for 2 years. Not one time did I misuse either med. In fact I rarely took the prescribed dosage because I hoarded the pills in fear I might not get another prescription. My doctor is sketchy, putting it mildly. She changes offices literally every other month. So sick of tracking her down. I’ve been 6 weeks without either medication and struggling to function. So I thought I’d just go back to diet doctor for Phentermine. They will not prescribe until I’ve been 8 weeks off Adderall. I’ve been without 6 weeks, so what’s another 2, right? The thing is, I’m frustrated. Made to feel this disorder is just drug seeking is very humiliating. Thanks for a safe place to vent.
