I am so sorry to hear about your husband's condition related to this possible use of Adderall
Yes you are correct that Adderall use can increase the likelihood of a heart attack or heart disease, in fact here is a link with some criteria that should be considered before a patient is given Adderall
THANK YOU! :-)
You should definitely be consulting with a medical malpractice attorney concerning this, as this was negligence on part of the physician
May I ask why was he put on Adderall anyway at his age?
WE DONT KNOW! Thats a mystery
Yeah it is only for ADHD or a treatment resistant depression. Those are the only considerable factors for the use of that medication
Also after an attorney is consulted about this, then the attorney will file a complaint with the medical board to have the physician stripped of their license, put on probation, or sanctioned.
The original prescriber has left the clinic and the next one left two days after his dischrge from hospital., approx. 40 days ago.
Well a complaint with the medical board will still bolster your case for medical malpractice regardless if the prescribing physician is still there or not
He had a bi polar diagnosis but I KNOW there are many other meds to treat this! ADHD? Not that I am aware of
Adderall is not good for Bipolar at all because it is a psycho-stimulant!! Yes definitely consult an attorney because these prescribing physicians went wrong in so many areas it looks like
Adderall in combination with a Bipolar Manic episode can lead to psychosis for many individuals.
Did you have any other questions or concerns?
So, do i stop treatment at this facilty and seek legal advice? I have been there once and they have not confirmed any other appts. and have also failed to refer him to another provider as we requested though he is very depressed and scared. Also since we live in a small community do we go outside the county?
I would seek advice from an attorney and try to seek medical care at another facility because I feel that the medical care at this facility has been inadequate for your husband. If you have to go outside the county, then that would be the best option for your husband. i am so sorry that your husband is experiencing this, but I feel that this treatment facility has not given your husband the best individualized care
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

No, I am very satisfied with your advice and will continue to use JUSTANSWER.
