Vyvanse Vs Dexedrine Spansules
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
I received Dexedrine as a come down for my Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) but it's only 5mg, would it help at all because I still get that weird feeling when Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) finish?
Transition: The low dose dexedrine is to transition from the end of the AM Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) til you go to sleep and 5 mg is a reasonable dose. Any more and you may not be able to sleep. Talk with your doctor if you feel it is not enough or if you have to do a lot after the vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) wears off. A cup of tea may help it work better for you for the short time you need it. ...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 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

I take 60mg a day of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) 30mg at 9 then 30 at 1 with dexadrine at 5 pm the help the coming down affect but I find it's still not enough?
An adult dose of: Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) 70 mg. Given in AM takes about 2 hours to start working and lasts 12-14 hours in most adults. If you are a rapid metabolizer, a dose of Adderall taken about an hour before Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) effects begin to diminish may carry you through. Another option is to add a non-stimulant adjunct like Intunive, titrating doses till you achieve optimal effects. After 4-6 weeks, its effect lasts 24/7. ...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
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
I hope not: "speed" might make you too hyper to notice such feelings, but that's not reducing them. If there are reasons you feel "guilty" you need to consider them and find ways to repair harm or assure yourself ; others that you'll behave differently. If you did nothing wrong, you need to accept yourself - drugs have nothing to do with such moral/ethical work. Therapy might help. Best! ...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

Depends: That depends on what you mean by "messed up".

Very quick: The wonderful thing about stimulants is that they work essentially immediately. Once you find an effective dose, benefits should start 20-30 minutes after you take the medication and last, for dexedrine, (dextroamphetamine) probably about 8-10 hours, maybe a bit less. Similarly, benefit goes away about as quickly; typically benefit fades late in the day, & the medication is out of your body by next morning. ...Read more
