My Chemically Dependant Mom Takes Amphetamine Comb

My mother has been to rehab twice. Once for drug addiction (marijuana and methamphetamine), and once a couple years later for gambling addiction. About a year or maybe 2 ago, she was diagnosed with add or adhd not quite sure which one, and was prescribed a generic pill labeled amphetamine comb. This prescription has her bouncing off walls and staying up for several days at a time, she is very irritable and our relationship has completely fallen apart. She is constantly angry and verbally abusive to my two younger siblings ages 17 + 13. I can't find any information on the web concerning anyy drugs called amphetamine comb. Her doctor als0 gave her a little device that crushes the pill and makes it able fr her to inhale it. This seems very very wrong to me but nobody else involved takes my concerns seriously, due to our failed relationship. About 2 weeks ago I stole 2 of her pills so I could see for myself how similar it is to street meth, I ate 1 pill whole, and my girlfriend ate 1 pill whole, quite frankly a tweaker would love it, I was up all night doodling in my notebook, it felt exactly like the meth I used to use on occasion. I was just wondering if her doctor is doing anything illegal by prescribing her this medication in minnesota, and if there is nything I can do, so that we can have a relationship again. Should I report her doctor?

Just out of curiosity have you ever been to this doctor with your mom and met and talked with him in the office?

No, but my girlfriend spoke with her doctor about this subject, and her doctor suggested that my mother was doing something illegal. I just can't find any relevent information

I don't belive she has actually met her doctor, her doctor bills come from some sort of business with the name doctor in it, like national accredited doctors association inc., or something like that.

I need some sort of documentation to show my dad, so he can get her help, because he doesn't believe my accusations.

They do have some information for it on the internet if you type in amphetamine combination. Good luck to you and I would see if you could talk to her dr about what is going on on the qt. As these pills may not be coming from the Dr. Do you have an .Aunt or someone else that you might be able to talk to about this athat might be able to help you? If you crush certain pills and snort them, they can give you a buzz, iam not a Dr., but I cannot see a dr telling her this.
