Cancelled my prescription today

I'm super proud of myself. I can tell I'm slowly returning to normal. Two months of no pills, and by cutting myself off.. I no longer even have the option. Horray me!

Good for you man thats the best way to go about it. I drafted a letter for my doc asking him to cancel mine. The letter is stamped and good to go but I havent sent it yet I'm being hesitant about it cuz I know thats the point of no return but I really really need to do it.

Kylechaos,

Good for you. That's a huge step! I cried when I told my doctor to cut me off....if that isn't the most obvious sign of addiction, I don't know what is. Congratulations :)

You can do it. There is no point of no return, you can always come back. Exercise and vitamins. And yeah..that's pretty addicted. It's going to be definite for me because I'm military and they have it in the system that I cancelled it because I hated feeling robotic.

First, congratulations.

Second, I've always been interested in what the aftermath is for telling your doctor you don't want any more adderall. I would expect that most doctor's would be suspicous if all of a sudden you said "No, stop, I no longer want you to prescribe me adderall," especially if you are like me and ask for more of it every month and are constantly finding ways to get a faster script refill.

My main concern is that the doctor could in some way "blacklist" you or set some kind of red flag for future visits or even other doctors. If I tell my doctor to stop prescribing, does that mean it's gone forever?

Please. I told my doctor that I was quitting (had quit) Adderall because it was extremely addictive. She said, and I quote, "You weren't addicted, you had a tolerance to the medication, like people have a tolerance to coffee."

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

I told her there's a huge difference between needing a cup of coffee to wake up in the morning and the psychological addiction of not being able to do anything without an amphetamine because it takes the effort out of everything in your life. Needless to say, she did not seem convinced.

Not only are most doctors in complete denial of the addictiveness of amphetamines (because they've never tried them), but they will believe whatever bullshit they are fed by the drug sales reps. Plus, if you were a doctor, would it be more sooting to your ego to think, "I created an addict" or "My patient has become tolerant of this medication, much as I am to caffeine."
