In brief: Several

There are many stimulant class medications.
Even some new ones, just released. As for outside the standard medications, i would talk about this with your doctor, but exhausting your possibilities with what is currently a 'labeled use' is better.

In brief: Adder all

Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is derived from dextro amphetamine and amphetamine.
They were Dexedrine , still available , and benzedrine, not. Desoxyn is available , methamphetamine , but rarely rx'd. If you seek nonamphetamine stimulants, methylphenidate formulations are plentiful, Ritalin was the first. There is a new med, vyanase, a prodrug amphetamine, that only gets active after ingestion and metabolic breakdown.
