Can dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) help with guilt?

I hope not: "speed" might make you too hyper to notice such feelings, but that's not reducing them. If there are reasons you feel "guilty" you need to consider them and find ways to repair harm or assure yourself ; others that you'll behave differently. If you did nothing wrong, you need to accept yourself - drugs have nothing to do with such moral/ethical work. Therapy might help. Best!

No: Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) would do nothing to work through guilt. It is dangerous because of it's abuse potential. It will do nothing to solve your problems.
Dr. Judith Tellerman

GUILT: The best way to learn how to cope with guilt instead of fruitlessly just trying to escape would be with a Clinical Psychologist with expertise in multiple types of psychotherapy to help you with ZOOM & a Psychiatrist for medication. Research indicates that with psychotherapy you can grow and change in good ways and find better coping mechanisms.
