No health insurance, can't afford my adderall, ADD is running amuck!

Lost my health insurance, & the last 6 months of fighting my ADD w/out Adderall has started to effect my job performance. Monthly doctor appts to get the rx are $150, & Adderall w/out insurance is $90. I can't afford $240/month! Plus there's the Adderall shortage everyone's experiencing. I've seen a lot of OTC pills claiming to mimic Adderall, but are there any that work?

TheDirty.com keeps pushing ADDTabz (http://store.gentech-pharmaceutical.com/addtabz-mental-focus-performance-60-pills/), but at $90 for 60 pills (with shipping), that's not much more affordable for me. And who knows if these things work?
I've also heard of Cerex (http://www.medpodium.com/index.php/cerex.html), at $48 for 60 pills (with shipping), but I don't know anyone who has actually used these things. My biggest concern is that they'll be unsafe; my second concern is that they'll do nothing and I'll waste the little money I have.
I feel so frustrated. I was on Adderall for 3 years and was doing so well at work because of it! Then I got laid off, lost my health insurance, and I'm afraid I'm about to lose my crappy part time job too. I would never try something like meth, but fuuuu--, no wonder so many people fall into that trap!
