Actually, now that I've thought about it and looked into it, the whole thing is so complicated that I've decided to give up on Adderall in favor of something that does not expose me to having "addict" whispered around me, that I don't need to get renewed each month, and that I don't have to hesitate about travelling with.

If you love to travel extensively (I mean, spending months at a time overseas), I can't imagine how you would be able to handle it with stimulant meds. I would be ruined with stress over whether I could find a doctor who would deign to prescribe them. As it is, I would be pretty stressed out if the doctor suddenly decided to play God, declaring a "medication holiday" that conveniently coincided with him being caught out of town without his prescription pad.

That's not the kind of freedom I had hoped to obtain from my diagnosis.
