View Full Version : Getting prescribed stimulant medication in India?

09-23-17, 11:25 PM
Hi, I am interested in potentially moving to India from the USA in order to attend a 2 year program there. I currently take a low dose of Dexedrine as well as some medications for sleep. Does anyone know how I would go about getting Dexedrine (and potentially the other medications) while in India?
(I have strong preferences for particular Dexedrine manufacturers to boot. I'm guessing I won't be able to be so selective.)
My parents told me they could ship me the medicine but I just learned that shipping prescriptions is illegal.
Anyone know where I would start in order to figure this out? I'd need to get new health insurance and presumably a psychiatrist in India. Is Dexedrine available in India? These are all the kinds of questions I have.
Thanks for any help.

I dont know that much about the laws in India but there have been members here who have said its very hard to get much of anything prescribed, plus I dont know if dex is a legal option for india.
