In brief: 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.
