Can my Family Med doc prescribe a narcotic?  I have ADD/ADHD and was taking Ateril , but now self employed so no insurance. Can he prescribe?

Not narcotic: Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is not a narcotic. It is addictive, but it's like 'speed'. Yes, some PCPs do prescribe it for those conditions. Did it help you? How? If you can really impress your doctor w/ descriptions of what you're like with it and without it, they might. There may be other ways to handle it w/out the possible physical harm and addiction.

I : I agree with dr. Peterson. Depending on type of rotator cuff tear, physical therapy is often an excellent option.
