Usually none.: In my experience, usually no withdrawal symptoms from stopping normally prescribed Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) doses other than loss of positive benefits it may have had, though sometimes depression ; fatigue occurs. Decrease in capacity to concentrate or focus can occur if it was being given for add. Cessation of higher than normal doses can cause fatigue, long ; disturbed sleep, irritability, and even violence.
