Methamphetamine Provided by: Pronunciation: meth am FET a meen Brand Names: Desoxyn, Desoxyn Gradumet Last Updated: February 13, 2004 What is the most important information I should know about methamphetamine? Use caution when driving, operating machinery, or performing other hazardous activities. Methamphetamine may cause dizziness, blurred vision, or restlessness, and it may hide the symptoms of extreme tiredness. If you experience these effects, avoid hazardous activities. Methamphetamine is habit forming. You can become physically and psychologically dependent on this medication, and withdrawal effects may occur if you stop taking it suddenly after several weeks of continuous use. Talk to your doctor about stopping this medication gradually. Do not crush, chew, or open any "once-daily" methamphetamine tablets or capsules. Swallow them whole. What is methamphetamine? Methamphetamine is a stimulant and an appetite suppressant. It stimulates the central nervous system (nerves and brain) by increasing the amount of certain chemicals in your body. This increases your heart rate and blood pressure and decreases your appetite, among other effects. Methamphetamine is used to treat attention deficit disorder with hyperactivity (ADHD). Methamphetamine may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide. Who should not take methamphetamine? You cannot take methamphetamine if you have heart disease or high blood pressure; have arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries); have glaucoma; have taken a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) such as isocarboxazid (Marplan), tranylcypromine (Parnate), or phenelzine (Nardil) in the last 14 days; or have a history of drug or alcohol abuse. Before taking this medication, tell your doctor if you have problems with your thyroid, an anxiety disorder, epilepsy or another seizure disorder, or diabetes. You may not be able to take methamphetamine, or you may require a lower dose or special monitoring during treatment if you have any of the conditions listed above. It is not known whether methamphetamine will harm an unborn baby. Do not take methamphetamine without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant. Methamphetamine passes into breast milk and may affect a nursing baby. Do not take methamphetamine without first talking to your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby. How should I take methamphetamine? Take methamphetamine exactly as directed by your doctor. If you do not understand these directions, ask your pharmacist, nurse, or doctor to explain them to you. Take each dose with a full glass of water. Do not take methamphetamine in the evening because it may cause insomnia. Do not crush, chew, or open any "once-daily" (long-acting or sustained-release) methamphetamine tablets or capsules. Swallow them whole. Never take more of this medication than is prescribed for you. Too much methamphetamine could be very dangerous to your health. Store methamphetamine at room temperature away from moisture and heat. What happens if I miss a dose? Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose or if it is already evening, skip the missed dose and take only your next regularly scheduled dose. A dose taken too late in the day will cause insomnia. Do not take a double dose of this medication. What happens if I overdose? Seek emergency medical attention. Symptoms of a methamphetamine overdose include restlessness, tremor, rapid breathing, confusion, hallucinations, panic, aggressiveness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, an irregular heartbeat, and seizures. What should I avoid while taking methamphetamine? Use caution when driving, operating machinery, or performing other hazardous activities. Methamphetamine may cause dizziness, blurred vision, or restlessness, and it may hide the symptoms of extreme tiredness. If you experience these effects, avoid hazardous activities. Do not take methamphetamine late in the day. A dose taken too late in the day can cause insomnia. What are the possible side effects of methamphetamine? If you experience any of the following serious side effects, stop taking methamphetamine and seek emergency medical attention: an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of your throat; swelling of your lips, tongue, or face; or hives); an irregular heartbeat or very high blood pressure (severe headache, blurred vision); or hallucinations, abnormal behavior, or confusion. Other, less serious side effects may be more likely to occur. Continue to take methamphetamine and talk to your doctor if you experience restlessness or tremor, nervousness or anxiety, headache or dizziness, insomnia, dry mouth or an unpleasant taste in your mouth, diarrhea or constipation, or impotence or changes in your sex drive. Methamphetamine is habit forming. You can become physically and psychologically dependent on this medication, and withdrawal effects may occur if you stop taking it suddenly after several weeks of continuous use. Talk to your doctor about stopping this medication gradually. Side effects other than those listed here may also occur. Talk to your doctor about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome. What other drugs will affect methamphetamine? You cannot take methamphetamine if you have taken a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) such as isocarboxazid (Marplan), tranylcypromine (Parnate), or phenelzine (Nardil) in the last 14 days. Changes in insulin and other diabetes drug therapies may be necessary during treatment with methamphetamine. Methamphetamine may reduce the effects of guanethidine (Ismelin). This could lead to an increase in blood pressure. Tell your doctor if you are taking guanethidine. Before taking this medication, tell your doctor if you are taking a tricyclic antidepressant such as amitriptyline (Elavil), amoxapine (Asendin), doxepin (Sinequan), nortriptyline (Pamelor), imipramine (Tofranil), clomipramine (Anafranil), protriptyline (Vivactil), or desipramine (Norpramin). These drugs may decrease the effects of methamphetamine. Drugs other than those listed here may also interact with methamphetamine.

A close friend of mine takes adderal and had a positive drug screen. All she needed was a note from her physician to clear everything up. I am so sick and tired of this whole "drug testing" thing. There are many legitimate drugs that can interfere, plus OTC meds and some foods. Unnecessary invasion of privacy. Sorry you had to go through this whole mess. Answered by Anette Lotridge 3 months ago.

adderal, desoxyn, and ritalin are meth. they will show up on a drug screen as meth, you should have your doctor write you a note that states he prescribed the medication. In that way your employer won't fire you for using meth. Answered by Rupert Weinger 3 months ago.

Asked by Glenda Mcgilton 3 months ago.

I have been taking adderall and it doesn't really work anymore, i also just feel more of the negative side effects. I take one adderall a week and do not have an addictive personality and my doctor knows this. But sine I read desoxyn has less side effects, but is considered bad since its "addictive" thats it has a sigma. so can they? Answered by Jacelyn Shirah 3 months ago.

Yes they can, however, most will refuse due to legal restrictions on the use of the drug, the stigma associated with it and so on. Adderall is a mixture of amphetamine salts. Desoxyn is the same thing, only methamphetamine. They have basically identical side effect profiles, except that Desoxyn is substantially more potent. Whatever side effects you have on Adderall, you will likely have from Desoxyn. Why are you only taking one Adderall dose per week? It's usually dosed several times daily unless you're taking an extended release formulation. Most likely, your doctor will be unwilling to prescribe this medication unless you've completely exhausted the dosage options of Adderall, and all other alternatives, such as Stratterra or methylphenidate. Desoxyn considered a medication of absolute last resort, along the lines of Clozaril, or the antibiotic vancomycin several decades ago. Answered by Isaura Nelles 3 months ago.

Any physician with a Narcotics license can prescribe it, but I am not certain you need it. If you need it, you have to take it more than once a week. Perhaps you do not have ADHD or whatever. Desoxyn is basically a legal "Speed". Many states look really hard at these prescriptions for that reason. Your doc may have to justify his using it. Answered by Kassie Kearn 3 months ago.

I need a drug to keep me awake so I can focus on school. Im interested in desoxyn or adderall. I smoke weed. Will it take a big toll on me if I continue with my weed smoking and take one of those pills. Do you know which one will keep me awake longer? Don't judge me please. School is just really important to me. I can't dissapoint my parents anymore. Answered by Kathrin Letts 3 months ago.

Desoxyn and Adderall are a toss up. Weed? Most of the time weed makes you tired, not to mention messing up your study skills. My advice: forget the weed if you want to stay awake and study Answered by Tammi Valseca 3 months ago.

If you can get desoxyn, it would be the first choice. It will take a much bigger toll than adderall, because you get get more studying out of desoxyn. If you really want to do well, don't do weed. Answered by Jin Gheza 3 months ago.


Has anyone prescribed or been prescribed Desoxyn for ADD?
I mean Desoxyn. Asked by Harland Mcgivney 3 months ago.

I have a lot of trouble concentrating and finishing tasks. I get easily distracted and forget to do things. I am never on time anywhere, even when I set alarms and have it in my calendar, I’m always late. I used to take Adderall(the orange capsule with the beads), which helped somewhat, but made me nauseous, kept me from sleeping, made it difficult for me to socialize normally, kept me from having sex, and made me feel very sluggish. When I was in high school I did crystal meth and that was the cure for me. I always did my homework, It was easy to follow through on tasks, but there were some unfavorable side-effects from not sleeping. I was wondering if Dexedrine was a good option for me since it’s a methamphetamine. Or does someone have a better recommendation? Answered by Denita Colpa 3 months ago.

First, Dexedrine is NOT methamphetamine. However, Desoxyn is. But honestly, the chances of you getting prescribed Desoxyn are very slim, especially given your past history of drug abuse. On top of that, it is a closely watched drug by the government because it is Methamphetamine. And a real lot of doctors do not want to open themselves up to any trouble with the feds by prescribing such a drug. There are some doctors who will prescribe it, but very few.

I have really bad ADD/ADHD and all the previous meds didn't work very well so my psychiatrist gave me script for a 1 month supply me Desoxyn(Methamphetamine) at 10 mg. She said that it was met. She told me to start off with half pills for a week then go up to the full dose and I have an... Answered by Robin Sabine 3 months ago.

Did you tell your doctor about your past history of drug use? If you did then the doctor wouldn't give you a prescription that wouldn't be good for you to use. If adderall is causing these problems then give Desoxyn a try. Below is a link to a good web page that gives you some good information about the medication. Please read it.

If desoxyn is FDA approved, how hard would it be to get a doctor to prescribe 15 mg. a day for weight loss?
Dude I don't want acai berry, but I'd like a little bit of Rachael Ray. Asked by Farrah Cascia 3 months ago.

This month I'm taking phendimetranzine er 105 mg. cap once a day. I'd like to try taking desoxyn next month if I can get it prescribed. Or 15-30 mg. of adderall, but I might not find a doctor willing to prescribe them. In that case I will most likely take phendimetrazine for two more months. It seems to be helping fine, but I'd rather have a legal amphetamine. Answered by Lora Bilotta 3 months ago.

Is there much of a difference between Adderall and Desoxyn?
does desoxyn or adderall have much of a difference though in effect? Asked by Chantay Mittler 3 months ago.

I'm going to be seeing my psychiatrist in a couple of days and I am going to ask about being put on one of these drugs for my social anxiety seeing as how the SRRI is not working. Also ever since she bumped up my dosage to 60mg of prozac I have had a huge increase in suicidal thoughts. Last time this happened it turned into psychosis with Celexa. So I have heard that using ADHD drugs can help with this and I'm wondering between the two is there much difference to what it does to you? Answered by Margot Pedrin 3 months ago.

Adderall is a different type of stimulant than Desoxyn. desoxyn is basically pill meth. desoxyn is meth. Answered by Elizabeth Rhum 3 months ago.

Adderall is two kinds of amphetamine for use in ADHD. That is a whole lot different than what an SSRI does and treating anxiety. You might ask them to try Buspar. It has little side effects. Answered by Palma Sandles 3 months ago.
