Brief Answer:
Consider using atomoxetine

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to HCM.
I can understand your concerns for your husband.

Use of stimulant medications in ADHD with Cardiac issues required regular monitoring.

No stimulant medication is Cardiac-safe.

In my opinion, atomoxetine(prescription drug) is relatively safe as compared to stimulants like vyvanse.

You can discuss about this drug with the doctor.

Hope this helps.
Feel free to ask further.
Thanks.
