I would think using a controlled substance for its prescribed purpose must be acceptable, even for officers.

For example, using Tylenol 3 with codeine as prescribed would be ok, right? And just as Adderall is an amphetamine, codeine is an opiate.

Amphetamines are stigmatized but what you are doing is perfectly legal. God forbid it came to a shooting, but to be on the safe-side, maybe do this: make sure your doctor has given you the most airtight diagnosis possible (an oxymoron with ADD, I know). In a lawsuit, you wouldn't be able to afford any suggestion that your ADD was in any way uncertain.

If that is done, doctors would probably go to bat for you and explain how Adderall works on the ADD brain - ie in a way supposedly counter to how amphetamines work on someone else.

Just my two cents, but maybe spend sometime while you're here looking around for some ideas as to how many of us try to manage our ADD without using stimulants....
