A 27-year-old male asked:

Check Resources: Your college may have mental health services that can get you psychologically tested (including attention tests) and seen by a physician who can prescribe stimulants if warranted. Mental health clinics can provide the same at a sliding rate relative to the fees. Of course this is not going to be swiftly in order to save you job and school. You may wish to talk directly and tell them your plan.

Call your Pharmacist: The direct answer is to call your pharmacist and ask about the expire date and the loss of effectiveness of the medication. Medications expire just like other products we buy with expiration dates. Are you likely to throw out milk that has expired? You may not because it still taste fine. With medication dates it is the last guaranteed date that the medicine meets standards for effectiveness.

RX Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine): A primary care physician can certainly prescribe Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) if in his/her judgment the medication is necessary. He/Her may need more information from the other doctor such as medical workup, psychological testing, and contact with a psychiatrist if any question is left unanswered. The prescription it self will not be enough for the doctor to write a prescription for you.
