No: What you could do is contact the manufacturer. Show them proof that you were legitimately on this medication and quite often they can mail you samples for free. There's a special form to fill out, and i believe your physician also needs to fill out a portion of the form. Don't buy it on the internet. It is a schedule ii drug. Dea can prosecute you for this without a valid prescription.

Talk with your Dr: Adderall XR is still a pretty expensive drug. However, generic Adderall and generic Ritalin (methylphenidate) are less expensive. Your doctor may be able to give you a 3 month supply of one of these (under code b if in ny) and you may be able to get it from a deeply discounted pharmacy such as walmart or a membership club, or mail-order pharmacy. Good luck.
