Is the ADHD medication desoxyn (methamphetamine) effective?

Is the ADHD medication desoxyn (methamphetamine) effective?

Real speed: Desoxyn is methamphetamine. Yup the same stuff some truckers and bikers use. Although it is fda approved & can help adhd, it is rarely recommended in the usual array of medication algorithms published for this condition. The reason is it is too easily diverted to illicit use. It is also the most addictive of the adhd medications available. I always look for an alternative before prescribing this. ...Read more

Is Adderall or desoxyn (methamphetamine) better for treating add?

Is Adderall or desoxyn (methamphetamine) better for treating add?

It depends...: Desoxyn is not used that much anymore, in part because it is methamphetamine, which is a heavy-duty street drug. I only very rarely prescribe it, and advise against it for a teen or child. But every patient is different, and different drs have different experiences and preferences. Still, we have many other better choices for our patients now, only 1 of which is adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). ...Read more

I have been on Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) 6o and dexedrine 10 for 7 months, efect is bnot as desired as bfar as focus, is desoxyn better, how an I obtain?

Desoxyn (methamphetamine): Desoxyn is the "thermonuclear bomb" of adhd treatment. It is literally fda approved, pharmaceutical grade methamphetamine. I have personally used it in only two patients that failed everything else - and it worked great.

I think I'm reading that the effects you were getting are fading. You might try adding l-tyrosine 500 - 1000 mg 2 - 3 times per day on empty stomach to boost their effects. ...Read more

Stimulant titration: Initial low doses of stimulants are titrated up to optimal doses over a few weeks' time, unless significant side effects occur at a lower dose. Maximum adult daily doses of Adderall XR & Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) are 40 mg. & 70 mg. Respectively. Discuss with your psychiatrist before seeking a dangerous medication. If your primary physician is the prescriber, seek referral to a psychiatrist. ...Read more

I've been dealing with ADHD since childhood and I've taken Ritalin (methylphenidate) and Adderall and is desoxyn a legitimate medicine to take for my issue?

Not design: Desoxyn is another name for Methamphetamine, and is not a first choice of medication for ADHD. Mother medications, some of them derivatives of methamphetamine such as Adderall, Ritalin, Strattera, and Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) are better choices and have evidence in the literature and positive outcomes to support their use. Try Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine), I've heard good things about results ...Read more

Probably not: Desoxyn is a methamphetamine, and primarily used for the treatment of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorders. The uses that you mention are off label, or not sanctioned by the fda. There are other medications that are better for depression, and medications tend to not work long term for weight loss. Speak to your primary care provider. ...Read more

Why do some children have allergies?

Why do some children have allergies?

Exposure + Genes: One needs both a genetic component and "exposure" to a said allergen to develop an allergy.

I have an allergy to nuts and I was wondering if my children would also be allergic?

I have an allergy to nuts and I was wondering if my children would also be allergic?

Nut allergy: Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. Nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read more

Could incorporating locally grown honey into my children's diet, help with their seasonal allergies?

Not at all: It is a common misconception that eating local honey helps allergies. Local honey contains pollen from local flowers. People generally have little exposure to and aren't allergic to flower pollen (except florists). Wind pollinated trees, grasses and weeds which release huge amounts of pollen cause most allergies. Eating pollen has no effect on allergies though holding pollen under the tongue may. ...Read more
