Desoxyn Overview

Methamphetamine[note 1] (contracted from N-methylamphetamine) is a strong central nervous system (CNS) stimulant that is mainly used as a recreational drug and less commonly as a treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and obesity. Methamphetamine was discovered in 1893 and exists as two enantiomers: levo-methamphetamine and dextro-methamphetamine.[note 2] Methamphetamine properly refers to a specific chemical, the racemic free base, which is an equal mixture of levomethampheta...

Is Desoxyn still available as Adderall substitute?
10 Replies RSS
Redbook 2009 page 375 "Pharmacys Fundamental Reference" 100 tabs of five mg Ovation Pharmaceutical "Desoxyn" is $381.65 wholesale, and is $457.98 retail, "cash in fist" or $4.58 per tablet. I used to take the former Abbott Labs of North Chicago, Illinois, the former 10mg and 15 mg. "Desoxyn Gradumet tablets, which were available at least from 1965 until 1999, these were extended (sustained release tablets) not the instant release 5 mg ones that Ovation is licensed to manufacture for Abbott. The 10 mg were orange, the15 mg were yellow. Even the white ones, 5 mg, were embossed with the classic little reverse "a" in a small letter. Much superior, in my humble opinion, were Abbott's former stimulant called "Desbutal" which also were methamphet...

need doctor to prescribe desoxyn
2 Replies RSS
I am a vet and have ptsd and adhd. A fellow service member gave me dysoxin to help with overwhelming anxiety before a speech I gave at a convention last week. I ask my dr for a scrip and he said no. I can't take adderall because of the irritability at night. And nothing else works. This drug worked for me. Why can't I get a dr to give it to me? I am in Orange County, CA. Can anyone point me in the right direction? ## I have ADHD and have tried everything from Stratera to Vyvance & Adderall. Adderall makes me sleepy & groggy. From the research I've done I need Desoxyn. Is there a Dr in Tulsa Oklahoma that will write for it? ## Need a Dr to prescribe Desoxyn in Houston, Conroe tx area.

Amphetamine ## This Medication was prescribied to me for narcolepsy. My quality of life has dropped tremendously.I lost 50% of my functions. I have not been awake since this drug was discontinued. I would love to be able to have this medication and get my life back. ## Why someone would discontinue a drug that has such a great effect on narcolepsy patients? Many people have overdosed on many dangerous drugs, desoxyn being a methamphetamine the fatality % is 0. Having knowledge of this being a former D.E.A. agent for many years. I among many others consider this a great cure. ## I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF DESOXYN EXISTS IN 5MG AND IN 15MG DOSES? ## Well, first of all, the fatality rate for Methamphetamines is NOT 0%! Many people have died from reactions to them or from abusing them, so you ...

how to obtain prescription ## send info please ## Desoxyn was prescribed to me and my son for narcolepsy. It is amazing that such a safe & effective drug was taken off the market. We have not been awake since the discontinuince of desoxyn. We currently take adderrall & dexedrine, they don't come close. What a better world it would be if it were still available. ## If you have ADD , ADHD or Narcolepsy, Your Doctor can write you a script. Usually only if nothing else works! Provigil...ect...Aderrall, ritilan, Dexadrine.... Just makes my heart beat fast, gives me the jitters and makes me feel .....scared!???? DESOXYN does not do this. It is absorbed much better in the fatty tissue of the brain. The HORROR stories are from the crap sold on the steet. 15 to 25mgs. 2X a Day seems ...

Has anyone been given Desoxyn
6 Replies RSS
Desoxyn seems to be given to some. I for one have never had it or anything close, legal or not. If you did use it, was it effective or was it too much to tolerate. What was your experience? ## I haven't taken it yet. Pharmacies like CVS and Ralphs don't have it and other pharmacies I've called need the actual written prescription to tell me if they can even fill it. So I have to get the physical prescription from my Dr. and drive around and ask. I'll let you know asap. ## Desoxyn is new news to me as well. One thing I don't understand though is why/how doctors are able to justify writing prescriptions for what is widely recognized to be an illicit/illegal substance (more commonly known as Methamphetamine). For the FDA to approve Methamphetamine (Desoxyn) seems to me ...

Hi, desoxyn is not discontinued! Or I just got ripped off by my drug store today! 3/13/2006. Only is availlable in 5mg. doses. For ADD / ADHD or Narcolepsy. Also for obesity but I never heard of any one getting it for that. I am 180 lbs. Dosage that works best for me Is 25 mg. 2 X Day. Some will tell you to use more. I think much more is bordering on abuse, instead of therapy. I have ADD & Narcolepsy! ## No it's not discontinued it's made by Ovation Pharmeceuticals. I think the name just changed but you can locate it under that. Good luck getting it. I have the severest case of ADHD ever documented in Washington State and none of the stimulants work half as good as Desoxyn and I can't get it. I could if I wanted to pay the $1000+ for it myself. Yeah right! Let me know ho...
