Re: Why does Adderall seem best ADHD med and why likely doc won't prescribe?

I've developed tolerance to ritalin and asked to my doctor about switching to amphetamine preparation. He said don't try amph at all because it's very high potential of addiction. I've gone to another psychiatrist and he also avoided amphs and prescribed ritalin again.

There are very strict rules about stims in Turkey. It's very very difficult to obtain ritalin even if it's prescribed by psychiatrist especially if you're adult. Pharmacist don't want to sell stims even if they have. Still many of pharmacists and even doctors don't belive in adult adhd.
I don't know if vyvanse or adderal could be prescribed or not legally in Turkey. Even if it's legal i'm sure it would be extremly difficult to obtain them even with doctor's presciption.
I don't think amphetamines are more dangerous than ADHD itself.
In brief, imo doctors don't want to assume responsibility. They don't want to deal with laws.
