Patientts are getting fired left and right for the stupidest reasons. It's like their whole office has become bipolar. Or is it a conspiracy bc they have written too many controlled substances and are in trouble with the government? They don't give a crap who they are effecting and I would bet thousands that the suicide rate will triple the next few months! If you haven't been dismissed from their office yet...be prepared because it will happen and then you'll be stuck with no doctor like most of us which means no medicine!!!!! So I guess here's to going crazy and possibly my impeding death!

They don't prescribe adder all,
Xanax or klonopins. Patients cancel
Appts. And demand and threaten. And aren't willing to try other meds.

I know for a fact they do prescribe Adderall and Xanax bc that's what was keeping me stable for ADHD and severe anxiety. I never demanded or threatened and was always open to medicine changes. After a severe breakdown and 7 years with switching my meds this was the only two that have worked for me along with an anti depressant.

Wow, I'm sorry for your troubles. Have you tried any other doctors? I would think before a doctor like this drops a patient they should atleast give them a list of other doctors that they can go to because people with mental disorders really need that care.

They gave 2 places. One place won't even return calls and it's been 3 days! And the only thing the office will do is fill my meds for the next 30 days. I am so worried...I'm trying to live, not die! This has been a major set back in treatment as my anxiety is just getting worse. I'm not a Medicaid patient or a junkie and I don't sell my meds!!! This is just so unfair! And the consequences could be deadly for me or many others. They used to act like they cared there and now they act like they wish anyone that needs medicine would just go kill themselves :(

No

It's the hospital. RVBH is its own entity.

Can you die from ADHD and anxiety?

If you're talking about killing yourself. Find a way to western state and commit yourself.

What is Western State? Where is it? Why should he go there? Why not RVBH?

If ADHD is not controlled properly the mind will race causing maybe paranoid thoughts or feelings and you loose all thoughts and concentration. Anxiety/Anxiety attacks feel like you are going to have a heart attack, heavy chest, hard to breathe, numb hands, shaking, it's one of the scariest feelings in the world! Usually I break out in a sweat with mine.
I do not want to kill myself! But have been without these meds before and my family nearly fell apart and friendships ended. Depression can get so bad that you wish you were dead! Being without a psychiatrist ESP one that knows your history is highly important and crucial. I just pray that I find a dr in time before meds run out!
I have never been to western state and will try anything I can to keep from going!

You really need to educate yourself about ADHD. It doesn't cause those symptoms. You sound psychotic.

Ok so you are an expert and have had this happen to you? I have 7-8 years of medicine adjustments and know what works for me. I'm lucky to be alive. Every person is different and psychiatry meds are like chemistry...
And by my research going off ADHD meds cause impulsive and reckless behavior and mood swings! So that's the same thing as my mind racing! And by the way I am not psychotic .
Please if you don't have any help for me and others out there in the same situation please just refrain from posting. Thank You.

Sometimes ADHD is confused with generalized anxiety disorder. This happens a lot in this town. Perhaps the person may even have both. I've been working in mental health for 20 years and usually the best combination IS Adderall and Xanax. A lot of Doctors seem to disagree with me, but I feel as if the quality of life improves drastically with the combination of these two when generalized anxiety and ADHD I'd present. And to answer your question whaaat, yes suicide can be a thought and you can feel like you are having a heart attack, because you are having such raising thoughts.
anxiety sucks

I understand my doctor fired me out of the blue. No reason didn't miss appointments. I think they do this because its such a hassle and they fear possible jail time for prescribing controlled substances. It is scary to know you wont be able to live a normal life. I went to a regular doctor and they gave me vistaril and my antidepressant. I'm sorry this happened to you. If you have a family doctor I would ask them if they could prescribe something similar. Alot of people on this sight are miserable hateful people. I started drinking wine to deal with my anxiety. Ive had to stop driving and lost my job feel terrible because I have to lean on my family for so much. Relationships do suffer. I hope you have understanding friends and family to help you through. I feel your pain because Xanax was my salvation. My only way to live a normal productive life. Hopefully the Commonwealth will change these laws soon because of the damage they have caused to so many people lives and I can be normal again.
