Dexedrine (d-amphetamine) is a constituent of Adderall. Dex alone is the much more potent isomer. You can throw in a second methyl group to the side chain. I was prescribed Dexedrine "Spansules" 15mg t.i.d. when I suffered from Adult ADD. You might research the Spansule version and mention it by name. It's time-release Dexedrine. Or tell him you want Desoxyn, take one in the morning and NO MORE after that. At least you're honest. That is refreshing. You know you want dope. Others pretend it is medicine.

I am considering trying to get a prescription for Dexedrine a stimulant. I am always tired and mentally foggy. Dexedrine coupled with NADH helped my aunt change her life completely. NADH caused me to have anxiety but I would like to try Dexadrine? Is anyone on it? Does it help? What are the side effects? Are they worth it? Answered by Alena Balestra 2 months ago.

Lady J- Dexedrine is chemically dextro-amphetamine sulfate. It belongs to the same group of medicines and has similar effects as deadly "meth" or metamphetamine. It can only be prescribed by phyicians for certain diagnoses because of its major history of drug abuse and abuse. Dexedrine, a stimulant drug available in tablet or sustained-release capsule form, is prescribed to help treat the following conditions: Narcolepsy (recurrent "sleep attacks") Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. (The total treatment program should include social, psychological, and educational guidance along with Dexedrine.) advertisement. Most important fact about Dexedrine Because it is a stimulant, this drug has high abuse potential. The stimulant effect may give way to a letdown period of depression and fatigue. Although the letdown can be relieved by taking another dose, this soon becomes a vicious circle. If you habitually take Dexedrine in doses higher than recommended, or if you take it over a long period of time, you may eventually become dependent on the drug and suffer from withdrawal symptoms when it is unavailable. It would be wisest to visit your doctor, discuss your needs, and perhaps find another safer and effective medicine, if needed. Answered by Reda Artus 2 months ago.

Does dexedrine help with guilt?
And yes, it was prescribed to me for my adhd Asked by Cecil Osby 2 months ago.

Dexedrine is a central nervous stimulant used to treat ADD, ADHD, and Narcolepsy. Sometimes it is used to treat Social Anxiety Disorder and a few other Psychiatric Disorders. As far as I know, I've never heard of it being prescribed for guilt. This question is one that you should really discuss with you doctor. If you need a medication to help you deal with guilt you feel for some reason, your doctor would be the best person to help you with this. Dexedrine does not always make you loose weight. It is a stimulant, which is a type of speed. However, it calms a person with ADD down, and does not always give a person energy. It is a class 3 narcotic and should only be taken as prescribed. You should not take it if it was not prescribed to you. It is not only illegal, it is bad for you. Taking it in a way it wasn't prescribed could in all reality cause death. As I said at first, this is something you should really discuss with your doctor. Answered by Cassidy Dorcas 2 months ago.

Are these side-affects of Dexedrine?

Okay so I have tried Phocalin, Daytrana, Straterra, and now Dexedrine. I have had the worst side affects on all of these and they either make me completely zoned out, or I am just super irritable. I am not overdoing the dose on the Dexedrine I am on a kiddie dose of 20mg. My psychiatrist is trying to determine if I have ADHD(diagnosed in 2nd grade), extreme anxiety, and depression or if it is Bi-polar.. She is putting me on this because she wants to see how I respond to ADHD treatment since it is easier to treat then Bipolar and if it doesn't work out she will look into the Bipolar. Since I have started taking it I am extremely nauseous(taken with food!), dizzy to the point of almost falling over, horrible headaches, my anxiety is through the roof insane, not hungry all day, and I am both sad(I feel like crying for no reason), some-what zoned out, but still have my hyperactivity too. It doesn't make any sense! Answered by Gaynelle Hillyer 2 months ago.

maybe you should just stop all medication all together and let your body recover naturally. once thats over, then you should see your psychiatrist so she can see how you are completely sober and not on any mood altering medications. then she could make a true diagnosis and hopefully get you the correct treatment this time.

Cymbalta 60mg, dexedrine 40mg, and lsd? side effects/ increased effects?
taking cymbalta 60 mg and 40mg daily. wondering what the effects would be like if i take lsd. F*** you if your going to say dont do drugs. Asked by Aleshia Gerrits 2 months ago.

The dexedrine would theoretically just give you a speedier trip, but since you are taking Cymbalta too that would dull it quite a bit. In fact, you may feel little to no effects at all because the Cymbalta and LSD would both be competing for the same serotonin receptors in your brain. Thus you may have to take a higher dose of LSD in order to achieve the same effects, but you may not -- it really depends on the person, so I wouldn't suggest just doubling up your dosage because you really can't know what to expect. If I were you I'd wait until you were off the Cymbalta (as per your doctor) before you do acid, if not just for the sake of not having to waste extra money on extra lsd just to get the same effect. Also, DEFINITELY do NOT stop taking Cymbalta just so you can take the LSD, for several reasons. First of all, your trip will still not yield the full effects as it takes SNRI's several weeks to leave your body. Furthermore, the physical and mental withdrawal symptoms from stopping SNRI's abruptly can be horrible -- trust me -- and the psychological effects would not only be exacerbated by the LSD but they could potentially provide the basis for a pretty bad trip. So in short, if I were you I'd just wait until your doctor has taken you off the Cymbalta before you do LSD. And I wouldn't rush it either, because remember that during an acid trip even the deepest-rooted psychological problems can easily come to the surface. It's not something to be too worried about if you're confident and have a positive attitude, but it definitely is something to consider and it is a huge part of using LSD beneficially and responsibly. Anyway, whether you decide to do it sooner or later, have fun, be safe, and happy tripping! Answered by Maryetta Cannady 2 months ago.

Honestly? ^_^ It's a little bit weird: --In general, people get more focused when I'm around. I've seen this especially in my apartment building, when I linger in the common areas, the people that are there--some of whom are mentally ill, others elderly--become more focused and thoughtful. And it seems like I *cannot* go shopping without a bunch of folks coming in *after me*.....my presence seems to suck customers in. --More specifically, one on one, guys tend to get a little irritated or intimidated. It's sad, a lot of my same-sex friends feel a need to get into regular, competitive "pissing contests" to see who's smarter or who has the wittier comeback. It's weird too. I don't *look* like a jock or anything, so I don't get where the alpha-male scent they pick up is coming from. --And more specifically with women....it depends. If they're already hostile towards guys like me (older, a bit chubby), they're going to be more so. But if not.... Once I start talking, they start laughing. ^_^ I look plain in real life, but people are shocked when I *talk* and they hear the voice that comes out. I guess I look rather dumb or something. I've actually caught women doing the 180 and start *smiling at me* once they hear me talk. It's odd. I guess my words *are* prettier than I am. ^_^ So the effect is either disconcerting or seductive, depending on how open the ladies are to it. Hope this helps. ^_^ Answered by Freddy Everton 2 months ago.

Could orgasms possibly dampen the effects of Dexedrine?
I was recently prescribed Dexedrine, for those of you who don't know, (Dextroamphetamine) for my ADD. I was just wondering if... Well, if I were to relieve myself while under the influence of the drug would that in any case dampen the effects of it? Thank you everybody, all answers are greatly appreciated. Asked by Keiko Bochat 2 months ago.

First, Dexedrine is 'top of the line' when it comes to ADD/ADHD amphetamines, with the one exception of Desoxyn (methamphetamine) which very few people are prescribed. I was prescribed Dexedrine for several years, in large amounts, and had to stop. I was abusing it like crazy. It is mg per mg much stronger than Adderall. As for "relieving yourself" while on it, that process takes a toll of its own, Dexie or not. It may temporarily seem to dampen the effects, but that's just your body. Answered by Agripina Klym 2 months ago.

No. There's an old myth about orgasm robbing your life energy, and this perpetuates into the modern age, but other than changing your mood for a few minutes afterwards, it won't have any effect. Answered by Emilia Serro 2 months ago.

both drugs have the same structure, the physical properties are identical. the recommended oral dosage of Dexedrine(still available) was 5mg/day, but the recommended dosage of Benzedrine (no longer available) was twice that. Apparently it required considerable more Benzedrine than Dexedrine to yield the same physiological response. explain this apparent contradiction. Answered by Emmaline Focks 2 months ago.

Although Dexedrine and Benzedrine both have the same formula there is a difference in the two. Benzedrine is a racemic mixture of D-amphetamine and L- amphetamine, whereas Dexedrine is D-amphetamine. D and L refer to being dextro rotatoryand levorotatory. This difference makes differences in the properties specially with regard to the rate of absorption and metabolism. Although Benzedrine inhalation and tablets were used during the early days of my career I have forgotten the dosage and what the formulation was. I am unable to tell you anything more on this subject. Answered by Gertrude Sweep 2 months ago.

How good of a diet pill is Dexedrine? What does it do to help weight loss?
I was perscribed Dexedrine by my doctor for both anxiety and weight loss. I am depressed/anxious because I am overweight. How good is Dexedrine for losing weight? Does it just reduce appetite? Does it help speed up metabolism? (I'm at 10mg) Thanks. Asked by Manuela Akey 2 months ago.

Dexedrine is an amphetamine. It is primarily used for AHDH along with Ritalin and Benzedrine which are also amphetamines. All amphetamines increase your heartrate and blood pressure and decrease your appetite. Although it is a stimulant, it can actually have a calming effect on your mood. While I think it's a bit unusual to hear it being prescribed for anxiety, provided you stick with the recommended dosage, it's a perfectly safe and very old and well studied drug. That being said, losing weight via stimulants/appetite suppressants is less preferable than other prescriptions available such as Xenical and of course, good old fashion portion control and exercise. Good luck. Answered by Mona Baumann 2 months ago.

Dexedrine? Adhd? medicine? HELP!?
Yes, i do get more self-confident, but not that energetic. I am thinking of taking antidepressants but i've heard way to many horror stories about them. Asked by Robyn Edmons 2 months ago.

I take dexedrine to help me study once in a blue moon, but i'm taking a liking to it. It really helps with my anxiety, depression and keeps me focused on things in my life that I should be focused on. Im in university right now and find that I often can't bring myself to do anything since im so lethargic and lazy and get distracted by the little, unnecessary things in my life that frustrate me. Does any one take these regularily or does anyone know if it sounds like it could help me? I read somewhere that dexies are dangerous since it is technically speed. Dexedrine is for ADHD by the way. But i feel it really stabilizes my mood and keeps me focused on the important things. I'm actually much more rational, strong and levelheaded when im on them rather then the emotional, depressed paranoid mess i usually am. Answered by Seema Mcrae 2 months ago.

Do you also experience an increase in self confidence, have a lot of energy, seem to be witty and social, etc. etc. when you take this medication? If so, then I doubt you have ADHD; if you did, the medication would have a completely different effect on you. You may think that Dexedrine helps to stabilize your mood but it doesn't. It might, however, make you FEEL BETTER when you take it. If in fact some of your problems with concentration were actually caused by depression and anxiety (versus ADHD) then the drug will affect you like a stimulant would, because that is, after all, what it is. When I say stimulant -- think cocaine in a pill, if you take enough. I don't think Dexedrine is time released, so you're getting the full dose of medication all at once. The result would be similar to someone doing a couple of lines of cocaine. Because Dexedrine is a short acting drug, the effects probably last about five hours, give or take. You might start to feel sluggish when the drug wears off. Then you might take another one. Except that you'll notice you need more and more to have the same effect. Dexedrine, like all CNS stimulants, is a Class II drug, meaning that it's more highly controlled than other prescription medications. (For example, you cannot get refills on Dexedrine. Instead, you have to have a new prescription every time). Why is it a Class II? Because it can be very habit forming (i.e., addicting). This is just a theory. If you're anxious, in all actuality Dexedrine will probably end up making that worse. If you're paranoid, Dexedrine will DEFINITELY make that worse. If you're depressed and anxious what you need is an antidepressant (probably coupled with psychotherapy, at least to determine if you could benefit from it). If your problem is depression, an antidepressant could help you concentrate better, should improve your motivation, and should increase your overall energy level. My advice would be to go to a mental health provider (you might need a referral) and get an assessment. You need a correct diagnosis in order to get good treatment.
