James; As you know, most AD's are not controlled drugs. People who buy AD's or any drug in Mexico should, of course, have a script from their US doctor; the idea is saving money, not self-medicating.
I do find it interesting that Ritalin, so commonly used, is classified as a Schedule II contolled drug. Since James brought it up, there may be some people on the board who don't know which drugs are classified as "controlled" by DEA. The following is submitted for those who are interested:
The following is from Texas State Board of Phamacy website

A controlled or scheduled drug is one whose use and distribution is tightly controlled because of its abuse potential or risk. Controlled drugs are rated in order of their abuse risk and placed in Schedules by the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Schedule I — drugs with a high abuse risk. These drugs have NO safe, accepted medical use in the United States.

Some examples are heroin, marijuana, and LSD.

Schedule II — drugs with a high abuse risk but also have safe and accepted medical uses in the United States. These drugs can cause severe psychological or physical dependence. Schedule II drugs include certain narcotic, stimulant, and depressant drugs.

Some examples are morphine, cocaine, oxycodone (Percodan®), methylphenidate (Ritalin®), and dextroamphetamine (Dexedrine®).

Schedule III-V — drugs with an abuse risk less than Schedule II. These drugs also have safe and accepted medical uses in the United States. Schedule III-V drugs include those containing smaller amounts of certain narcotic and non-narcotic drugs, anti-anxiety drugs, tranquilizers, sedatives, stimulants, and non-narcotic analgesics.

Some examples are acetaminophen with codeine (Tylenol® No.3), paregoric, hydrocodone (Vicodin®), diazepam (Valium®), alprazolam (Xanax®), dextropropoxyphene (Darvocet®), and pentazocine (Talwin®).
