Drugs and Alcohol Addiction is a universal problem. There are several ways to overcome it.
Dextroamphetamine, commonly known as Dexedrine, is an amphetamine. It is a Central Nervous System (CNS) stimulant and a Schedule II controlled substance. This drug is approved for use in the United States by the FDA.
In the late 60s, Dexedrine was widely used as a prescription diet aid because of its ability to suppress appetite. College students commonly use this drug either for the stimulant high it provides or as a study aid.
Though Dexedrine is widely used as a prescription drug, it is highly addictive and has high possibility to be abused. Many individuals find themselves addict to the drug on prolonged use.
Dexedrine is available as tablets and capsules. It comes in both long and short acting forms. The former one, comes in 5 mg dosages, usually lasts for 2 hours. The longer acting one is effective for 8 to 10 hours and is available in 5 mg, 10 mg, and 15 mg dosages.
Effects of Dexedrine
Individuals may develop addiction to Dexedrine on prolonged use of the drug. Dexedrine can suppress all spontaneous actions of the body. It reduces all self generated activates like curiosity or socializing. This drug may increase obsessive-compulsive behaviors.
Symptoms of Dexedrine Addiction
Irritability, nervousness, restlessness, insomnia, and a false sense of well-being are the common symptoms of Dexedrine addiction. The addict may experience sleepiness, trembling, unusual fatigue or weakness, or mental depression on withdrawal of the drug.
The main symptoms of a Dexedrine overdose are abdominal pain, coma, depression, diarrhea, fatigue, hallucinations, fever, high or low blood pressure, and uneven heartbeat.
