Tell your doctors to research how proper usage of stimulants with ADHD/ADD. There is a shortage of dopamine in ADHD brains which drives the addiction issue. When stimulants are prescribed a person feels normal (probably for the first time in their life) and the desire to self medicate is gone.
This is a crisis. Our lives are being ruined with uninformed Doctors, Psychiatrists etc prescribing the WRONG drugs for this and making things worse.
