James here.....

It is not uncommon that ADD'ers self medicate. I have a client who has narcolepsy (documented w/ sleep studies) who did meth for years b4 he realized he could go to doc's to get his meds instead of the street. Some doc's will use stims
in people who have abused them or used street drugs. If you are just looking for a legal high....forget it. A doc is going to test you like crazy to prove you have ADD and you will not be able to fake having ADD. You will probably have to go thru detox and drug treatment program
and prove thru drug tests that you are off meth.
Ritalin, Dexadrine, and ADdderal are the meds used for ADD, Desoxyn is not generally perscribed, esp for recovering meth addicts. Most doc's give very limited supplys of stims to someone with a history of abuse. ( like a few days, and from time to time you might be asked to come in in the middle of a script and account for unused pills) If you really do have ADD you will do much better on legal meds than street drugs. I don't mean to be harsh here, but from time to time on ADD lists we get addicts who pose as people w./ ADD trying to bone up on how to act ADD to fool doc's. Giving stims to ADD;ers is still a hot topic and the last thing we need (I have ADD and need stims to function) is the press to get hold of an addict who fooled someone.
