Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine): Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) is approved in the States for treating narcolepsy, ADHD (attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder) & obesity. I'm not clear as to why you're taking this medication nor what effect stopped suddenly. Regardless, you need to go see your prescribing doc & tell him/her about your concerns. Good luck!
