I would not think so, since losing this drug, which is an amphetamine for ADHD, would not be considered an "emergency" and the ER doctors would rather not take on the liability of prescribing a medication that should be prescribed and monitored by your primary care physician.

You may have better luck calling your primary care physician to call in a temporary prescription or another one to a local pharmacy for you.

your psychiatrist will likely be the only one that will refill this medication for you. You may want to give his office a call to see if they can help.
