what can I take when my adderall runs out?

My curious cat likes to sleep in cabinets. She knocked my adderall bottle off the microwave and the lid must have been loose. Needless to say I had soggy dissolved adderall in my sink. I'm not do for a refill for 2weeks. Besides fish oil is there anything else I can take that would help?

Re: what can I take when my adderall runs out?

You might be able to get a refill especially if you've never had one before. Worth a shot.

Failing that - when I was a teenager (undiagnosed) I would self medicate before a test by taking No-Doz.

Re: what can I take when my adderall runs out?

The nters are very critical of us when it comes to losing meds things etc.They dont understand how easy it is or hard for us rather to keep track of things.I had lost my meds a few years back,honest to a t w the dr.She looked at me like I was handing them out like candy,she asked me if I was handing them out.Talked to me like I was a idiot too.Who the hell gives anti depressants out that arent even addictive. Hell Id throw em out before I gave em away.

Re: what can I take when my adderall runs out?

Didn't that just happen to you recently? You've really gotta find a better place to stash this stuff. Or keep your pills in a waterproof container, maybe a peanut butter jar?

There are "energy" supplements in the vitamin section of the drug store, you might find something there. Probably nothing as effective though.

Re: what can I take when my adderall runs out?

Go to a vitaminn shoppe and buy a thermogenic. I prefer oxyelite pro. Take one in morning and one later on and if you work night and day take a third.

It's similar to adderall. (not chemistry wise but effect wise)

Re: what can I take when my adderall runs out?

Well the pharmacy was full of innuendo so I dropped it. I never expected my cat to manage this one but the poor thing is deaf and senile. I won't go to doc for it as much as she likes me its just her policy

Re: what can I take when my adderall runs out?

Some energy drinks help. Monster and Red Bull are really the only two that work for me though.

Some have mass amounts of caffeine and I read somewhere that 100mg of caffeine is almost equivalent to 5mg of Ritalin...but not quite. A regular monster energy has something like 160mg of caffeine or something, and a whole bunch of "focus enhancing" supplements. Whatever, works a little for me on days I don't take my Ritalin.

That sounds awfully NT abk. Can you go run around the block a few times Sarah? It would be a good time to take that 12 mile hike up the side of the mountain... but don't forget the bug spray, sunscreen........and don't forget to not forget...

Re: what can I take when my adderall runs out?

Oh my I'm so sorry really as I fellow ADHDer I know how tough it is to be without your meds. Maybe next time your doc could double up you dose so you'd have enough for two months.No one with ADHD who feels they needs meds should have to go without them. When I can't relax at all.I'll just pop my Adderall That's right I got ADHD.LOL

Re: what can I take when my adderall runs out?

You should get one of those weekly pill organisers and take out only what you need for the week stash the rest in a very safe cool place so they don't crumble apart due to the heat or water coming in contact with them. But seriously Sarah I feel your pain I went three whole weeks with out Adderall a couple of months back because I was being stupid and impulsive,felt that I couldn't take the side-effects and flushed what was left of the Adderall I had afterward knowing about the nationwide Adderall shortage and how hard it had been for me to get any ADHD meds period for like 8 years of battling with the insurance companies over prior authorization, Doctors not wanting to prescribe I could not believe just because of a few side effects I would do something so stupid and at the time it was intentional.Within 24 hours I felt miserable because outside of few side-effects things were better than they'd been for me in many years. So now I do a much better job of taking care of my meds and working with my doc so I don't get frustrated because of side-effects.I've been on Adderall now almost every day for about 2 months.
