Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is highly addictive and should only be prescribed when the physician makes a bona fide diagnosis and all non-addictive treatments have been tried first.

Adderall is being prescribed according to the clinical justification. I strongly agreed with your doctor for conducting randomized urinary drug screen in patients who were taken this particular medication and other narcotic pain medications. Certainly you can go to another doctor but another doctor may request for your medical record to determine why your recent care was terminated.

I agree with your doctor. I would not prescribe it for you either.
