My Vyvanse Rx runs out when I'll be in Mexico

Hi, I take vyvanse daily and my pills run out in the middle of my upcoming trip to Mexico. On several occasions in the past, I have run out of my Rx early or recently lost half a bottle in a hotel room. I don't know if someone stole them from me or what, but my pharmacy is convinced I have a problem. For the sake of clarity, I have NEVER abused the medication, nor have I given it to someone else. I'm severely ADHD and misplace things all the time so perhaps this is why I've had intermittent issues with running out early. In any case, I know the drug store is doing their job, but it's awful to be treated like a criminal when I'm nothing of the sort. I'm simply highly ADHD and do my best each day to keep track of my family's and my life.

Back to the issue... I need to refill my Rx early and am wondering if I can show my travel itinerary/booked flight to prove why I need the refill sooner than it's due. I dread the thought of dealing with this, especially when I'm perceived as a possible abuser. I have considered stopping the medications just to avoid situations like this (I travel a lot), but I cannot keep my job/kids/self together with out it.

I would be hugely grateful for any help on this matter.

Ps. I called my prescribing doctor but have gotten no response.
