I have no experience with cocaine or being addicted to stims (except caffeine), but my initial reaction is "Wow. That is an unusual doctor!" So many doctors will not use stims if there is even a hint of a history of addiction.

If you have a good relationship with this doctor, and see him frequently, perhaps you really can develop the kind of communication and self-monitoring that will help you feel in control with using this medicine appropriately. If you will feel better about it, perhaps you can ask him to write two week scrips, instead of one month scrips. You might also want to work out with him a sort of self-monitoring scale to keep track of how you feel as the med wears off, or whether you are experiencing cravings for more of the med, etc.
