No, a doctor can not tell your boyfriend what medications you are currently taking. Medical privacy laws in the United States are really quite strict and do not allow the disclosure of information like that to anyone unless you have specifically authorized it.
There are some circumstances where medical personnel would be allowed to give information about you to family members or friends. For instance, if you send your boyfriend to pick up medications for you, the pharmacist might discuss the proper use of the medications with him.
Please look at the links for information about medical privacy from the Department of Health and Human Services.
