Mental Health (ADHD and Anxiety)

I have been taking medication for ADHD on and off (mostly "on") for about 10 years. I am currently 31. I am very interested in teaching in the Dominican Republic. However, I am concerned about the following possible situations:

1) Not being able to find a doctor that will be able to prescribe my medication (currently I take Adderall and Klonopin) or not being able to bring my current supply into the country

2) The prescription medication (or something comparable) I need to treat my condition not being available in the Dominican Republic

I have considered (and am still considering) possibly going off the medication, but signing a contract and agreeing to stay in a foreign country without the option of being able to obtain my medications worries me a little. Any information you can provide would be much appreciated!!! :D

Yes you will be able to find a doctor to work with
Yes you can get the meds and they will be over the counter so no RX needed
Yes you can bring your own with your (have a copy of your RX just in case)
You can have your meds shipped to you here as well.
So your "condition" should not be a factor in your move.
Good luck
