Can I have a dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) psychological addiction?

In brief: 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.
