Re: rules/regs of prescribing stims

Can anyone explain what exactly are the regulations for prescribing stims?

If your diagnosis fits with the FDA approved use of the medication, are the rules different? ie Ritalin is FDA approved for treatment of ADHD, and your diagnosis is ADHD. Would there be different rules for "off-label" prescribing?

Thanks for any insight anyone can provide with this - it's really making me nuts!!
