Desoxyn Overview

Methamphetamine[note 1] (pronunciation: /mθæmftmin/; contracted from N-methyl-alpha-methylphenethylamine) is a strong central nervous system (CNS) stimulant that is used as a recreational drug and to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and obesity. Methamphetamine exists as two enantiomers, dextrorotary and levorotary.[note 2] Dextromethamphetamine is a stronger CNS stimulant than levomethamphetamine; however, both are neurotoxic, addictive and produce the same tox...

Is Desoxyn still available as Adderall substitute?
4 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...

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 ...

Why so tired all the time? Taking desoxn. Confused? also take Geodon avian razadone wellbutrin and effexor ## You might need to up your dose(s) check with your Dr. Question, where do you get your prescriptions filled? I can't seem to find anybody to fill mine. I checked with Ralph's they don't list in in their comp. Checked with CVS they said it was on hold. Still need to check with Costco and Wallgreens. I'm in CA so I'd appreciate it if you could give me some info. on where to fill it. ## @ameries (original poster), According to nih.gov, "unusual tiredness or weakness" is listed as a side effect of Desoxyn (Methamphetamine Hydrochloride).

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...

Is there a doctor in the tulsa area.who will prescribe desoxyn? ## Hello, Colin2114! How are you? Due to the regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such a medication, you'll need to see a specialist for a proper diagnosis and treatment. Upon seeing one, you also won't be able to demand a specific medication, or they will view that as being drug seeking behavior. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone? If so, that would most likely be the easiest way of finding the help you need.
