Re: Anyone addicted?

I don't know your husband, but speaking more generally, ADHD people have much higher rates of substance abuse issues.

Even though Adderall is a prescribed medicine, if he is not following the doctor's directions (such as using a month's supply in a week), then that is behavior that is stupid, unhealthy, and illegal. If he says that it's none of your business, then you can tell him that it's the business of his doctor and law enforcement, and that you're willing to report him if needed.

Why is he misusing the medicine? Is it because his ADHD symptoms require a higher dose? If so, he needs to be open with his doctor so that the doctor can consider increasing the dose. If he's just trying to get high, then he needs to cut out that behavior asap or face the consequences.
