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.

Amphetamine drop: When your dose of Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) wears off, you may experience return of your symptoms of adhd, assuming that is what you are taking it for. You may also experience irritability, fatigue, and wanting to go to sleep.
