Most people say there’s a big difference between name brand & generic Ritalin. Is it the same with Dexedrine?
I’m about to start back on meds after six years of being off of them. I had a job and insurance six years ago, but have neither of those now. The state-run clinic that I go to will provide antidepressants, mood stabilizers, and all kinds of other things under their patient assistance program…but not stimulants. (not for adults anyway)
I can’t really even afford the generic, but I have to do something. If I can’t get it together enough to work, I can’t afford insurance, or meds, or a therapist, or a coach…but if I don’t come up with the money for meds I won’t be able to work!
I was told there was no generic for Dexedrine, which I found a bit silly since it has been around since the 30s or something. However, this could be because I take the spansules, i.e. the slow-release, Halloween-looking capsules? They are very expensive, at my dose it is about $2.60 a day, so I feel your pain.
