Adderall IR Prescription Limits?

Aside from the no refill rule, are there any limits regarding the maximum amount of Adderall IR that can be written on a single prescription?

SWIM currently has an Adderall IR prescription of sixty 30 MG pills intended to last one month.

Re: Adderall IR Prescription Limits?

Holy fuck on a stick, indeed. SWIM guesses SWIY "metabolizes them quickly"? *sigh* swim really need to broaden his horizons. he presently is allotted 2 10mg IR tabs daily, and it just isn't enough for his 6:00am-11:00pm days.

SWIM has had his script for six months...suppose it would be reasonable to talk to the Doc about increasing the dose?

Re: Adderall IR Prescription Limits?

Amphetamines and its various other forms Dexedrine, Methamphetamine yes methamphetamine can be legally prescribed (yet marijuana is still illegal go fig) are Schedule Two Narcotics, which mean they have certain limitations on how they can be prescribed. No Refills, every prescription must have a new written prescription, and call ins and faxes must be followed by a written prescription from the doc with in three days. They are also limited to a month's supply which depending on the dosage instructions doesn't necessarily mean thirty pills one a day, but I m sure there is a over all limit on the quantity of a schedule two that can be prescribed in a month. The DEA has just changed the rules allowing doctors to write post dated scripts up to a ninety day supply, that why you don't have to pay for an office visit every thirty days. Schedule Twos are the famous pharmaceuticals Morphine, Oxycodone (Oxycontin) Amphetamine Methamphetamine and Dexedrine are all Schedule Two which makes their diversion for recreational use more dangerous from a legal stand point, but diversion is illegal and no one should ever break the law concerning Schedule Two Narcotics no exceptions ...

Thanks for the informative post.

Re: Adderall IR Prescription Limits?

SWIM is very fortunate as his doctor doesn't charge him a visitation fee every month when he comes in to get his new script. The office uses an automated phone service on which one is able to leave his information and come in to pick up the prescription at the latest the following day, but usually within an hour. Surprisingly this system allows patients to call in for a 'refill' of Schedule II drugs, though it isn't technically a refill. Good stuff.

SWIM thinks you could get your dosage increased if swiy wanted.

Re: Adderall IR Prescription Limits?

Swim's roommate has a prescription to 90 mg Adderall/day. If there is a limit it's obviously higher than that...

Swim should add that he thinks that is extremely unhealthy to take 90 mg a day and does not condone using that amount, prescribed or otherwise.

That is wild...90mg is ridiculously high, even if it's given in XR form. How doesn't SWIY's roommate have constantly dangerous levels of dopamine depletion?

Re: Adderall IR Prescription Limits?

I believe the max recommended dosage for adderall per day is either 40 or 60mg per day, however a doctor can prescribe more of the doctor feels that it is needed but I imagine 60mg+ everyday is pretty harsh and the risk of free radical toxicity would definitely be increased

Swim believes he does suffer from dopamine depletion, among other things...

He is prescribed IR by the way not XR.

Re: Adderall IR Prescription Limits?

SWIM's doctor started him on that dose, and get this: it's being prescribed for anxiety/depression (along with antidepressants). Gotta love 80-year-old psychiatrists.

Re: Adderall IR Prescription Limits?

Per SWIM's understand of the rules, a patient should only be prescribed a one-month supply of Schedule II medications. However, SWIM is not aware of any daily dosage limits. There are recommended dosages, but doctors have quite a bit of leeway in deviating from recommendations. That's not to say certain pharmacists wouldn't frown about a high dose...

SWIM has known individuals who were prescribed similarly high doses of Adderall and other stimulants. SWIM has not been acquainted with anyone who took them as directed.

Re: Adderall IR Prescription Limits?

SWIM is prescribed 90 pills of 20mg IR 3x/day or as needed for a month's supply. She usually takes 40 or 50mg and find that controls her ADD pretty well. SWIM wondered if that was a little high for her first addy prescription, but didn't worry about it too much. She thought most SWIYs were able to take 60+/day. Kinda scary that docs just hand shit out.

Re: Adderall IR Prescription Limits?

Swim gets the same rx, 30mg IR x2 daily, but gets 90 day supply, thank you to my state's laws.

Re: Adderall IR Prescription Limits?

Swim's script is for 120mg Addy IR in four divided doses daily. Swim's had no problems with addy or dexedrine at this doage level. However swim is a large, heavily muscled man with very low bodyfat, 9% last week, which has something to do with it, swim's sure. Swim's under a doctor's supervision, BP and HR normal, so swim guesses swim's an outlier, statistically speaking, swim means.

Re: Adderall IR Prescription Limits?

One of SWIM's patients at the pharmacy has a script for 4x 30mg Adderall XR and 2x 20mg Adderall IR per day for a grand total of 160mg Adderall per day. SWIM noticed the crazy dosage while he was filling and talked to her about it for like 15 minutes when she picked it up. She said she has been using Adderall for years. She was given Ritalin as a child when it was less common, but it started to lose its effectiveness.
She said Adderall didn't affect her at all, yet SWIM couldn't help but notice that she spoke obnoxiously fast. She barely left enough time between her sentences to breathe. haha

Re: Adderall IR Prescription Limits?

SWIM gets an Adderall IR prescription of 120 20MG pills a month and has been on that dose for 4 years.

Also SWIM has no health insurance but just found a free Prescription Card online that cuts SWIM's cost in half per month. SWIM wished somebody would of informed SWIM of this a while ago. SWIM isnt sure if he can post the link but just Google "Free Prescription Card" and you'll find the link. It works great and all you have to do it print it out and all major pharmacy's accept it. There is a drug price lookup on the page which will tell you what each pharm in your area charges for your dosage.

Thank god for this because SWIM got laid off a month ago due to todays economy and unemployment where he lives doesn't pay all that much.

Re: Adderall IR Prescription Limits?

My stuffed beaver Wally receives an Rx of Adderall IR (Amphetamine Salts) for 6 months at a time. The amount of a certain schedule II medication that can be prescribed depends on the state, the diagnosed condition, the manner in which the Rx is written (i.e. Adderall IR 90 30mg tabs as opposed to Adderall IR 30 30mg tabs and have the number of refills written), certain codes that need to be written on the prescription in a certain location, the color of the prescription paper, etc...

Additionally, some states allow a 5-day emergency oral prescription for schedule II medication. So if anybody tells you that you need a written prescription everytime you need a schedule II medication, you can tell them they're full of shit (depending in which state you are in of course).

Each state should have a health department website that provide all the regulations and exceptions you need to know. Wally has often had to print off this website a few times because a few naysaying pharmacist thought that their judgement was final.

Re: Adderall IR Prescription Limits?

swim is prescribed 40 mg / day (2x 20mg IR). this is a STARTING dose mind you. Doc says he can go as high as 40mg a dose if it's not working well. realistically swim could eventually get 120 mg / day (40mg / dose 3 times a day, this is IR after all)
