Customer Question

Hi Kate. My husband and I recently relocated from the Minneapolis area to a VERY small town. I have a number of medical issues (most of which are managed by my primary Dr and Hemotologist), but I am having a very difficult time locating a Dr. without a 3 month wait, and accepts my insurance and new patients for management of sever anxiety disorder and ADHD. I am on Colonazapam and have plenty of that left over, but the Vyvance I take was always given the day it was due to run out. Due to not being able to find a provider, I am unsure what to do. Any suggestions or referrals to find a provider quickly?

Thank you for the request. However, I am not as familiar with insurance issues as mental health issues. I will opt out so someone else can help you.

Take care,

Kate

Hello, I am very sorry that you are having this difficult time finding a doctor that will provide you with a more sustained prescription of Vyvanse and Clonazepam. Because Vyvanse and Clonazepam are Controlled Substances, typically psychiatrists are the only ones willing to provide a prescription for it so obviously seeing a primary care doctor may not be an option. One possibility though would be to see if your primary doctor can do a skype or phone referral with a psychiatrist to see if you qualify for a Vyvanse and Clonazepam prescription than your primary doctor may be more comfortable in providing such a prescription...this is something that is seen often in small towns as psychiatrists are not usually present there. Another possibility you can try is to consider going to a University Hospital that has a Psychiatric Wing or Center as these professionals usually see patients more quickly and hopefully will be able to provide you with a more sustained prescription of your Vyvanse and future Clonazepam. Other than this, there are not many other options you have as these two prescription are very tightly controlled given their addictive qualities.
