A thought provoking post. I read the web site you listed and understand stimulants such as amphetamines would be inappropriate choices to treat those with previous addiction problems, but what other drugs are problematic? What about benzos for instance or drugs that potentially interact with the dopamine system? I took Sinemet for a while (dopamine that can cross the blood brain barrier) and it was the most mood altering drug I have ever taken. It would *hit* within an hour of taking it in the morning and I felt pretty wonderful until it wore off a few hours later. Subsequent dosages during the day didn't have the same effect.

Any comments about specific drugs appreciated.
