I've just found this site, and I'm amazed by the amout of info here! I'm going to be moving from the US to Japan in June. I'll be living in Tsukuba and working at a pharmacutical company there. I've been taking prescription dextroamphetamine/amphetamine (Adderall is the brand name) for several years and it's been an absolute blessing with respect to my personal and professional organization etc.
My question is regarding the legality of this medication in Japan. I've looked around on the web and haven't found anything definite, so I figured I'd ask here. Is it legal to posses amphetimines for ADD treatment in Japan? My gut feeling is that it is, afterall Japan is the #2 consumer of pharmacuticals... but just wanted to ask anyway.
