Dexedrine Allergy In Children
Adverse effects: Technically, allergy refers to reactions involving skin effects, itching, or, more urgently, breathing and rapid heart (emergency!). They are uncommon with desstroamphetamine. But "allergy" is often used loosely to refer to other adverse effects, some serious, some not. Including unusual ones, the list is long. If you are concerned, speak further with your doctor. An individualized answer for you. ...Read more
Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by envirionmental factors it should ignore--for example, pollen in the air, or dander on a cat or dog--and creates cells to fight against them. An allergic reaction typically causes itching, congestion, or drainage, and ...Read more

How effective is Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) on treating add in children?
Extremely: All of the psychostimulants (ritalin, adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) concerta, focalin) can be extremely effective in the treatment of add / adhd in children (and adults). My first line of treatment, however, is to make sure that the child with add is eating a balanced diet (and doesn't have any food sensitivities), is getting good exercise, and is in psychotherapy (if there are also psychological stressors). ...Read more
What's better for adhd children Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) with 2 mg periactin or with 2mg melatonin?
Side effects: It's not uncommon for adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) to disrupt sleep. Periactin is a sedating antihistamine. Melatonin mimics natural melatonin. The optimal regimen calls for finding the right dose of stimulant with minimal side effects. Less adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) might be optimal for the child, potentially another stimulant altogether! To answer your question, I would pick melatonin, since it's natural. They both work well. ...Read more
There dangers: Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) can be prescribed by doctor however. It is increasingly less prescribed because--Dextroamphetamine is a drug of abuse and may be habit-forming. Keep track of the amount of medicine used from each new bottle. You should be aware if anyone is using your medicine improperly or without a prescription. Using this medication improperly can cause death or serious side effects on the heart. ...Read more
Always: There is no treatment of any kind that does not carry pros and cons, and that certainly includes stimulants like dexedrine (dextroamphetamine). If you have a disorder for which it is effective and side effects are mild to none, then you have a winner. No benefit and lots of side effects make the decision to stop easy. Harder is good benefit with notable side effects such as appetite loss and sleep problems. ...Read more
What side effects: Are you referring to? Agitation and high blood pressure are two that will be alleviated by stopping the ads. Sometime tics can be precipitated and those can also go away once medication is started. Occasionally they can be long term if medication is continued. You may want to talk to the doctor who prescribed them as well for more information. ...Read more
Possible: Would need to know more about what you are experiencing, but some people really like the sense of mood elevation and mental sharpness that Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) can induce in some (not all) individuals. Losing that "edge" can be uncomfortable, so you go back to the medication to get it back, sometimes needing higher and higher doses to do so. ...Read more
Addiction=addiction: A harmful pattern of use characterized by using more of the substance than intended, persistent desire or unsuccessful attempts to cut down or stop using, significant periods of time spent using or obtaining the substance at the expense of other major life responsibilities, and continuing to use despite the knowledge of adverse effects. Psychological would imply no tolerance for withdrawal. ...Read more
How long of a withdrawal period should there be for dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) 70mg a day for 5 years?
Depends: Depends how quickly you discontinued the dexedrine (dextroamphetamine). If you tapered it slowly over several days, then you should be fine. If you did a slow taper & still have symptoms, then this should be addressed by your physician. Several possibilities exist to cause continued symptoms from discontinuation of dexedrine (dextroamphetamine). Some of those symptoms may not be withdrawal but adhd symptoms. Discuss with dr. ...Read more
How effective is procentra for treating adhd? What's the diff between procentra and Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine)?
Both are amphetamine:
Both Procentra and Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) are d- (or dextro-) amphetamine. Their differences are essentially cosmetic (packaging, labeling, formulation, solution vs solid form).
Procentra effectiveness is identical to that of Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) because they contain the same drug.
Amphetamines are very effective for some types of ADHD. There are other types of ADHD that do not respond to amphetamine. ...Read more
Vyvanse+Dexedrine for cognitive+word finding issues. When meds wear off I get totally confused. Worse than before. How to address? Want 24/hr relief.
I take Dolphine 10mg x 5 QD. I have just started after years on Oxycodone. I also take Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) 60mg QD. IS there any possible +/- interactions here?
Yes, there are: I hope your doctor is familiar with methadone and how to use it, because the substitution of methadone for other opioids has resulted in massive increases in overdose deaths and other harms when practitioners are not familiar with the drug. If you are taking 5 times/day for pain, that is inappropriate, as well as taking all 5 at once. Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) decreases sedation, not respiratory depression. ...Read more
Difference between dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) spansules/tablets? Usually get tablets but pharmacy gave me spansules (mistake?) this month. Prescription just says 'dexedrine (dextroamphetamine).'
Mostly the same:
When you are taking a generic medicine, it may come in any of a number of forms--tablets, capsules, and so on. They should be more or less equivalent. Keep in mind the fda regulations are that the medicine contain plus or minus twenty per cent of the stated dose, so one generic brand may be different than another.
The bottom line is that the actual pill form is probably not that important. ...Read more
A really stupid: Thing to do. About the only reason for snorting dexedrine is abuse by an addict. You bypass the GI tract and risk a much more rapid onset of action without the gradual release the pill or capsule provides. Over time you will erode the nasal mucosa. You could get an accidental overdose and because it is not sterile you could get a CNS infection. Beyond that you will be sliding down a very slippery slope regarding the legality of your acquisition and use of dexedrine. ...Read more
Unsafe interactions: Dexedrine ; Lexapro can result in bad side effects with elevation of serotonin in your system. Dexedrine and xanax (alprazolam) have unclear interactions but they could be potentially dangerous as Dexedrine tends to decrease sedation while xanax (alprazolam) tends to increase sedation. Your doc may want to decide if this trio of drugs could be improved. Are you also receiving psychiatric attention to address adhd/anxiety? ...Read more
Depends on...: Lots of things "can" happen in life, and there is no universal law governing how much of a drug "can" or "cannot" be prescribed... which means there is no answer to this question. That said, the maximum "recommended" dose is 60 mg per day, divided into several doses per day. The usual starting dose is 5 mg per day. Dosing depends on the doctor, patient, and each individual situation. It's an art. ...Read more
No need to: You would not need to mix 2 stimulants. Your doctor should be able to help you adjust the dosing of one so that it helps you in the needed ways. ...Read more
Not very: Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) was popular years ago as a diet pill, and it certainly can suppress appetite in the short term for most people. However, that effect tends to wear off over time, so either appetite returns or the dose gets raised, eventually to levels that are dangerous. When you stop the medication, the effect goes away, so regaining weight is the usual result. ...Read more
Same: Dexedrine is dexedrine sulfate, as is Vyvanxe. If the duration of action of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) after maximizing the dose, still leaves a time period needing coverage, short acting dexedrine tablets, effect for about 4 hours, may help cover the time you need. You should not have to take both forms together ...Read more
