Oops ignore the last part of my message. Ha, I now realize you were referring to the doctors visit haha. But yeah, here's how I imagine it'll go... Doctor: 'so what can I do for ya today??' me: 'well you ha been prescribing me nuvigil for problems I was having with motivation and energy and feeling fOcused but it turns out I lost my insurance from starting new job so the nuvigil would be $470 a month. That's obviously not something I'm interested so in so id like to see if j can get an alternative drug where a generic is available. As I understand it, methylphenidate would be similarto nuvigil in action so I think something like that would be good in generic form or maybe adderall. '

Then I'll mention how walmart has super cheap generic methylphenidate as part of the $4 a month plan and so that would be my best option.

At that point it's a matter of whether he's comfortable giving me stims without a diagnoseS, though he did say ADHD is a possibilty when I saw him a year or so ago.
