Once you have established care with a psychiatric provider at the Carruth Center, please call our center at (304) 293-4431 to leave a message with your psychiatric provider.
Please be sure to have your medication name, dosage, and pharmacy information ready. Your provider may call you back to clarify your request.
For some prescription refills, your provider may request that you schedule a return visit prior to authorizing a refill in order to provide appropriate clinical care. Please allow three working days for your provider to respond to your requests.
Some prescriptions such as Adderall can only be issued by a written prescription and cannot be phoned in or sent electronically to the pharmacy.
Stimulant prescriptions (Adderall, Ritalin, Vyvanse, and others) are Schedule II medications as designated by the Drug Enforcement Administration. This group of medications requires prescribers to follow more strict rules than with other prescription medications and is tracked accordingly.
Although this group of medications may offer clinical benefit with some psychiatric disorders, the group as a whole has a higher abuse potential including the inappropriate distribution of the medication. Selling or giving your stimulant medication to another person may be associated with serious health and legal consequences.
If you think you or someone else may medically benefit from a stimulant medication, please seek an initial evaluation in our MindFit clinic or appropriate health care provider.
