hello sir,
I have had severe ADHD all my life was on riddlin as a kid and have self medicated with methamphetamine for about the last 25 years. I take a controlled amount everyday by weight. I recently relocated to Florida and really don't want to deal with illegal meth trade anymore. I am a 40yo stable person, a business owner, and am married with 3 kids(26,19,10 years old) how do I go about finding a doctor to prescribe it to me legally?

Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
You would have to look for a psychiatrist in your location to help you prescribe it.
You may have to first contact your primary care physician who will then refer you to a psychiatrist.
You can find information on the doctors near your area on the following website:

Let me know if you have more questions.
Kind regards

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
