    Hello,
    I have been prescribed Mydayis (adderall) for the last year and a half. I now see that it is a "banned" medication so I quit taking it 2 weeks ago. Can I go take my dot phusical nkw or will I need to get doctor involved? Thank you and I'm sorry if this question has been asked a million times. Cheers!

    If you can pass a drug test, you're good to go.
    @Moose1958 has the details.

    Wait a little longer. To be sure it's out of your system.

    You do not want any hint of mental health issues via medicines prescribed to you.

    I don't see a problem provided you can deal with this crazy lifestyle. Nothing will be regular or routine.

    All you need is your doctor to write a letter stating that your medication does not affect your driving.

    It's a highly abused amphetamine. It's not about mental health but drug abuse. I'm not sure but Adderall might be on the completely banned substance list. If it is then no doctors not will help.

    it is not banned. All you need is a note from your doctor.
    Adderall is just ritalin in an extended release form. No doctor will prescribe it if not needed, nor is it addictive to people with ADD or ADHD

    I can attest to this. One of my good friends has been on adderall for years w/o any issues. They trust him enough with a bus full of kids
