In brief: Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) addiction

If you are taking it for other than the prescribed reason; taking it in larger quantities than prescribed or than you intend to; taking more than intended despite negative effects in relationships, work, or otherwise; hiding or lying about the amount you are taking from family or significant others; noticing a craving for the medication when you don't have it, etc -- would all be clues.
