Moving to India from U.S.

In June I'm moving to Kanchipuram from the U.S. I currently take Vyvanse to treat adult ADHD and I am not sure where or how to get either this medication or something similar in India. I need information on how to proceed in finding a doctor, cost of medication/appointments, and what medications are available for this condition.

Hello there. I can understand your concern. Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) needs to be treated by a psychiatrist, vyvanse contains a drug by name lisdexamfetamine which is not easily available in India, METERRA by taj pharmaceuticals was a lisdexamfetamine marketed in India, but I'm not sure if it's still available. Better to consult a psychiatrist in person and ask him for an alternative prescription drug. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.
