Getting re-prescribed concerta after psychosis?

Hey Guys,

I'm new to the forum. I experienced a psychosis a few months ago. I have been suffering from bad anxiety and ADD all my life, and everything improved when I started 36mg concerta daily 20 months prior to the psychosis.

How likely is it that I can get it re-prescribed? I am an engineer and I really can't get by without it. Basically I'm f***ed; I can't stay awake or focused or remember anything while reading dense technical information I need to do for projects.

How did the psychosis happen? Basically I found that sleeping less helped a lot with my social anxiety. The less I slept, the less anxiety I had, my sense of humour and social aspects of my life improved dramatically. Eventually this resulted in a week of 2hrs sleep/night. I just lost control of it. I honestly thought that psychosis was seeing/hearing things, guess not.

I was admitted to the hospital and put on anti psychotics for a week and then lithium since then.

Had anyone had a similar experience? I'm in NZ.
