Dexedrine is a common treatment for ADD in adults. It is a stimulant that helps with focus and engagement in their work.
But it is an amphetamine and thus has potential for chemical dependence.
Missing a dose or stopping can lead to withdrawal symptoms like depression, anxiety, fatigue, irritability.
Therefore missing a dose may leave an individual feeling less happy, less energetic
- The longer one takes Dexedrine, will one become more reliant on it for energy/happiness/motivation?
- Will the side-effects of not missing a dose get worse over the years?
- Are any of these effects permanent?
