Brief Answer: Legal problems Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query. I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through. I understand that you have ADHD and Panic Disorder. In the main question you have stated that you need Ritalin (methylphenidate) and ativan (lorazepam). However in the medical history you have stated that youwill be needing amphetamine and clonazepam which are different from ritalin and ativan. Are you prescribed all four of them? When a patient like you visits my OPD, ritalin is a good drug for ADHD, but for anxiety I would prefer prescribing the patient some proper antidepressant such as paroxetine or venlafaxine to cure the anxiety rather than prescribing clonazepam or lorazepam to simply mask the anxiety. Moreover the medicines need to be continued for atleast 8-12 months. For people who are averse to taking medicines, there is an option of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). This therapy is taken by either a psychologist or a psychiatrist in which the therapist identifies impaired cognitions (Thoughts) and try to correct them. They are 15-20 min weekly session and there should be around 8-10 sessions to help you with your illness. Regarding providing a prescription health care magic is an online forum, and legally we are not supposed to prescribe medications without physically examining you. Such regulation are primarily meant for the safety of the patients as well as the Doctor. Further any prescription given in E-mail will not be honored by the pharmacy in your country as there are some issues with the license. Sincere apologies for the same. However many of the patients on health care magic discuss the health issues with us and then get the prescription from their general practitioner, and they seem to be doing well. Hope I am able to answer your concerns. If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you. If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback. In future if you wish to contact me directly, you can use the below mentioned link: Wish you good health, Kind regards Dr. Srikanth Reddy M.D.

Brief Answer: Details as required Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the follow-up question. Methylphenidate and clonazepam are good drugs for anxiety disorder and ADHD. Its unfortunate that you had to loose so much amount for a psychiatry consultation that can provide you with a prescription. It has something to do with the law of the land. Otherwise in India, one can anytime get a consultation and prescription for less than 5 dollars without any appointment from a psychiatry consultant. However coming back to your case you may contact Dr. XXXXXXX L. Carr, MD KU School of Medicine–Wichita 1010 North Kansas Wichita, KS 67214-3199 She may help you with a prescription. The other option is Dr. XXXXXXX XXXXXXX MD 1010 N Kansas St Wichita, KS, United States. I hope these two may help you with your needs. I would be glad to know if you need any further help. Regards Dr. Srikanth Reddy
