Check out my Post. By the way, I trust your boyfriend was using oxy for real pain management. If so ther is very little chance to no chance of any addiction issues with stimulants even if he abused oxy etc. The daily max. dose of stimulants are NOT addictive.
This book - Healing ADD by Dr. Daniel Amen is a must read for those who struggle with either ADD or ADHD. Dr. Amen had isolated six types of ADD/ADHD, and sucessful treatment plans based on a test in the book. These treatment plans also include specific supplements to either replace scripts or inhance them as well as much more. I personally found out why stimulants did not work at first, but worked very well after I found out why as well as other great help. This book can be found in most library systems as well as most book stores and again a must read for a great treatment plan. In short, kudos for Dr. AmenView Thread
