Can Adderall be exported legally from the US or another country?

Hi everyone! Iím looking for some information about exporting Adderall overseas. Iím an American living in Australia and was diagnosed with ADD several years ago. I was prescribed Adderall, which I took up until I moved to Australia, where it is not available. My doctor here in Australia has had me try every medication that is available in the country, but nothing has been successful. Because of this, he decided to apply for an import permit and license through the Australian Office of Drug Control to import Adderall for me, which he was granted.

Now we have to provide the ODC with someone overseas willing to export the medication. I called a pharmacy in Dallas this morning and was told that exporting the medication was not possible for them to do. The person I spoke to said it was a statewide law that prohibited them from exporting medication overseas.

Is this even a possibility for me to export Adderall from the US to Australia? Is a pharmacy like CVS or Walgreens the right place to go for this, or am I looking in the wrong place? Would I have better luck (or any luck at all) looking in another country where it is available?

Iíve done some searching, but I canít find much on it. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I don't know.

I just want to warn you that there will also be very official-sounding people who also don't know - even though they think they do. Don't take one person's word for it.

Re: Can Adderall be exported legally from the US or another country?

maybe someone from Shire could help?
importing it from some where else, like Ireland or GB really might be a good option.

my last idea would be to find a really,really reliable and trustworthy online-pharmacy.
(but i migh not trust them untill someone i trust would tell me to do so)

Re: Can Adderall be exported legally from the US or another country?

meds can be imported by "international pharmacies", they buy it from the
international market but not from dallas.

over here i would have to pay the meds price and the postage.
ask your local pharmacy if they import or ask for an international pharmacy.
i have to go by bike to the city center to enter the int.pharm.

Mind TPP just has been cancelled and you could have to pay huge taxes soon.

Thanks so much for this. I looked up Shire's website and it looks like they only make Adderall XR (I'm on IR), but it's a good start. I hadn't thought about contacting the manufacturers directly.

Is Adderall legal in Ireland/GB? I'm finding mixed results when I search.

Thank you!

Thanks for your response. I'm not quite sure what you mean by International Pharmacy..is this a physical pharmacy where they have license to prescribe/order medicine like Adderall from overseas?

In some countries there are pharmacies specialized in importing meds that are otherwise not available there.
i dont know whether they exist in Australia.

another idea, but i guess you talked to them already:

http://www.tga.gov.au/

they claim to know about import of meds, donīt they.?

Re: Can Adderall be exported legally from the US or another country?

Have you tried calling Shire? If they don't make Adderrall IR anymore, maybe you could try giving Barr or Sandoz a call.

Thank you. And yes, my doctor has spoken to TGA - that's one of the organizations he had to go through to get permission to import Adderall. I'll give them a call to see if they have any advice.

That's a great idea, thank you! I think reaching out to the manufacturers directly might be the best option all around.

Re: Can Adderall be exported legally from the US or another country?

Erm, is there an Aussie equivalent? I've heard you guys (blokes) have a decent medical system. What do your docs prescribe for A.D.H.D.?

OT, speaking of imports, I'd LUV to get some Vegemite!

I take it from your screen name you like to fish?

Dexedrine seems to be the popular choice in Australia and the closest thing you'll get to Adderall there.

Are there any reputable online vendors who would ship to the UK?
