My wife has a Prescription for amphetamines that she is supposed to take once a day, has something to do with helping her keeping focus. The problem is, when she gets her prescription filled, she takes a month's supply all within a few days. The results are that she stays up all night, has hallucinations, talks to herself, gets very paranoid, misses work and has lost a few good jobs due to this and has even flipped her car over! She could have been killed or worse, kill someone else!
I have been to the doctor 3 times complaining that she is abusing her meds and have asked nicely (not so nice this last time) for him to STOP giving her these as she is abusing them. His response was that SHE would have to come in and ask him to stop. Seriously?!? That's the last thing she wants to do!
Is there anything I can do? I find it hard to believe that an ethical doctor would continue to and be allowed to prescribe amphetamines knowing that they are being abused.
Any help would be appreciated.
