It is primarily used for ahdh along with Ritalin (methylphenidate) and benzedrine which are also amphetamines. All amphetamines increase your heartrate and blood pressure and decrease your appetite.

In brief: Not very
Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) does cause loss of appetite in many people and has been used for decades as a weight-loss medication.
However, as soon as it wears off, appetite comes roaring back; and, over time, one needs higher and higher doses to achieve the same effect, which can result in other side effects.
