Amphetamine Salts 15 Mg
Depends: I assume you are diagnosed with ADHD, and your need for medication depends on what you are doing (school, work, child care) and when you need to be at your best. For most patients you have to be most focused from 9 to 5, taking your first dose at 8AM and wnd dose at 1 or 2 PM would be what I would recommend. There are also sustained release versions you can take once a day. Talk to doc/pharmacist.

Depends: There are long acting or sustained-release preparations of amphetamine salts that should not be chewed. Short-acting forms can be swallowed or chewed - it really doesn't make them act any more quickly. The best way to take any medication is to take the right dose at the right time by the right method. With pills, this is swallowing the pills whole. Non-drug treatment of adhd should also be used.See 1 more doctor answer

That depends on many: Factors, including age, body size and the presence or absence of other health issues. There have been reported deaths in children with doses as low as 2 mg, but the ld50 is in the range of 1.5 mg/kg or so. In a 70 kg person, this would be about 120 mg as a dose that would be toxic to half of those who ingested it. People with underlying heart and blood vessel diseases may be more sensitive.
What is the difference between amphetamine/dextroamphetamine salts and only dextroamphetamine salts?
Active drug: Amphetamine has mirror-image versions (d- and l-). D-amphetamine (dexedrine) is the active version. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is a mix of d- and l-amphetamine that has been popular for treating adhd since mid 80's. The argument--not proven--is that the l-amphetamine "smooths" out the effects, so people are less apt to be irritable while taking it for their adhd.See 1 more doctor answer
Hi Is there a difference between the medications Amphetamine Dextroamphetamine and Amphetamine Salts Combo? I felt different on each one. Thank you
Subtle difference: Drugs & molecules occur in 2 different forms with the same composition called enantiomers & are physical mirror images: dextro (right), levo (left). Racemic is a mixture of both. Biologic systems use d versions almost exclusively and d-amphetamine is generally more active than l-amphetamine. Amphetamine is racemic amphetamine with d:l ratio of 1:1. The "salts" work out to be a 3:1 ratio of d:l

I am a diagnosed 21 year old male with ADD I take 1 30mg twice a day of amphetamine salts literally 20 minutes after ingesting I am completely sleepy?
Need lower dose: In patients with ADD amphetamines can be calming. If you are getting sleepy after a dose you may need to let your doctor know so that they can lower the dose.
If prescribed by Doc: Amphetamines are prescribed for fatigue where appropriate. You should discuss you ratigue with your doctor to uncover the cause, for instance sleep apnea, hypothyroidism etc. Only when a thorough evaluation has been done would amphetamines be appropriate, if you cannot identify a treatable cause of fatigue.See 1 more doctor answer
