Dexedrine: How much is too much?

Is 30 mg of dexedrine (15x15) too much in one day? ## The maximum standard daily dose of it can go up to 40mgs and in rare cases 60mgs, where a higher dose is needed to treat certain severe conditions. Learn more Dexedrine details here. However, you should stick with whatever dose your doctor has prescribed. if it isn't working, then you should contact your doctor to discuss possible solutions. Are there any other questions or comments? ## 30mg/day is not too much. The prescribed dose is not limited by fixed daily maximums but by the clinical judgment and willingness of your physician. The 40mg/day and 60mg/day maximums for dextroamphetmine sulfate were established long ago and for ADHD in children. (At the time the "experts" established these maximums, the experts also said...

What is a good replacement for Dexedrine ER?

I have an appointment with my psychiatrist this week and I plan to tell him about Amneal's discontinuation of Generic Dexedrine ER. That was the only authorized generic I could find, and the only version which worked for me. Now that I can't get it, should I request an IR version, or is there something more appropriate? I realize my doctor is the best person to ask, but I'd like to know what to ask for heading into the appointment. Thanks in advance! ## Have you tried Vyvanse? It's a great medication to treat ADHD. There's also Mydayis that's supposedly a great medication, as well. ## Amneal also makes brand Dexedrine Spansules. Tell your doctor that generic doesn't work for you/causes "side" effects, and have him/her (or the employees in their practi...

Does Dexedrine really help the obese?

How much weight, per week can one expect to lose on dexedrine? ## It has successfully helped some people to lose weight. How much they lose varies and it must be combined with appropriate diet and exercise. This is a simulant medication containing Dextroamphetamine. Common side effects can include: nausea, insomnia, anorexia and headache. Does anyone else have experience using this medication? ## I am taking prescribed Dextroamphetamine but cannot afford to lose any weight, which I am doing. Are there any helpful hints anyone can offer me. A Dietitian is attempting to help, but without success. Thanks. ## Only because dexamfetamine sulphate is a very strong stimulant which takes away any desire to eat... ## Dexedrine is a powerful appetite suppressant. When the drug stops working your b...

Can't find brand name Dexedrine Spansules and Zenzedi

I usually use CVS, but the pharmacist told me that their wholesaler does not carry Zenzedi. Those who take this medication, what pharmacy do you use? The only mom and pop pharm in my town said it was too expensive to order, but that chains that use a certain wholesaler different than the one CVS uses would be able to get it. I am not asking about (the vastly inferior, IME) various generics of dextroamphetamine IR. Been there, hated it. Zenzedi 15 mgs works for my ADHD-C and narcolepsy the way brand-name Adderall IR used to when it was manufactured by Shire, before it was taken off patent and the original formula changed. I am having similar trouble finding brand name Dexedrine Spansules (manufactured by Amedra and Amneal). I do not find the generic by Actavis/Teva supplied by all the ph...

Teva Barr Dextroamphetamine sulfate fraud placebo

I have been on Barr/Teva dexedrine sulfate, [generic] for 14 years. After 5 "shortages" I recently received back my script, butt it's a placebo !!!! Nothing at all. I took 25 10 miligram tabs; nothing at all. It's an unethical and disgusting scam. Am writing every politician, fda, Quality control, anyone who can address the monster of a crime. ## I feel the same way. The Dex 10's that were given to me had to be abused to have any effect. There is some FAKE crap out there. I have narcolepsy and took 60mg of adderall cor brand and never woke up. I feel sorry for kids with ADD and being forced to take a fake pill thinking its real only to screw up there homework and ultimately their lives. Something is Rotten in the generic stimulant area. FDA could give two s***s less ...

Looking for the same chemical structure as SKF 10 mg (Dexedrine)

My question is what drug on the market mocks the same exact structure as SKF 10 mg dextroamphetamine sulfate, as it was in the 60s 70s orange heart shape? Can you help? ## I'm not a chemist, but my research suggests that a company by the name of GlaxoSmithKline reportedly makes 10mg Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine sulfate ER) with a National Drug Code of 0007-3513. Please note however, that this information was last updated/revised in 2007. The characteristics of the pill are described as a clear brown capsule with the following imprint: "10;mg;3513;10;mg;SB" as represented by It also reportedly contains the following list of inactive ingredients: cetyl alcohol D & C Yellow No. 10 dibutyl sebecate ethylcellulose FD & C Blue No. 1 FD & C Blue No. 1 aluminum l...

Guide for Dexedrine Generics

Navigating the maze that is Dexedrine Generics is painfully complicated. Here are some tips. Everyone has their preference when it comes to medications like Dexedrine and Adderall. I happen to believe that the Brand Name drug is preferable to the generics, but the price is just astronomical. Dexedrine ER Capsules (Amedra) are priced at about $1300 for a bottle of # 90. The right to manufacture generic versions of the brand medication is spread among a number of companies, and changes constantly as companies are sold and resold to different holding groups. As for Generic Dexedrine: in 2010 Corepharma purchased the right to make Dexedrine from GlasxoSmithKline. CP then offered Brand Dexedrine (made by one of their divisions, Amedra) and generic Dextroamphetamine Sulfate - under the CP lab...

Dexedrine availability

I am exceedingly pill-sensitive. Nothing works for me like the old Dexedrine by Smth, Kline, Glaxoc. Is there any place in the world to obtain and fill a prescription for it? ## Hello, Wendy! How are you? It is still available in the U.S., but you may need your doctor to write a prescription as 'brand medically necessary' and to have a pharmacy order it in for you. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, mood swings and anorexia. Has someone told you that it isn't available? ## I was told the same - my pharmacist tried to order more as I was picking up my prescription last week 'suspended indefinitely' ... I'm also extremely 'pill senstive' - ...

Dexedrine question

So I've been on adderrall or vyvanse for some years now and I seem to have an incredible tolerance. My question is to anyone who has tried both and which one worked better. If dex does are the doctors Leary in giving it out and is it as hard or harder to find pharmacies that have it? Thanks for any feedback ## Or has there been anything stronger/more effective then vyvanse or adderrall? ## It really depends on which one works best for you. The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, and anorexia. Which one have you had the best luck using? Most pharmacies carry both, though they usually have a limited supply. ## My doc could no longer write Addo he gave me. Vyvanse. Not only did...

Dexedrine Brand Mfg History: SKF, SKB, GSK.

Glaxo Smith Kline had Abbott Labs of North Chicago Illinois manufacturing under license from GSK the "E-19" Dexedrine Sulfate during most of this decade, until, the Spring of 2009, when manufacturing of 5 mg orange heart I/R Dexedrine was stopped, a production run since 1937!!! It is my understanding that the "brand Dexedrine Spansules" the extended release 5 mg version, also has been discontinued. Citation needed. Previous, Glaxo Smith Kline had Cardinal Pharma of both Kentucky, and, another firm out of Albuquerque NM, producing, the 10 and 15 mg. brand Dexedrine pink and white pellet Spansules. In New Mexico, it was Catalent Pharma. "i do not have a clue in 2012, if GSK, has anyone producing for USA citizens their famous brand name Dexedrine Spanusles. I do know th...

Dexedrine Vs Adderall

I have been taking Dexedrine (Dextroamphetamine Sulfate XR) for 3 years now and it has always looked the same: clear and dark brown manufactured by BARR, imprinted with the same and the numbers 956. Two months ago the medication I received was blue. I was stupid and didn't think twice about it only to be called by the pharmacy and told I had been given Adderall by mistake at the end of the month. The following month my medication was back to the usual clear and brown. This month I have been given blue pills again. They gave them to me in a bottle that says "Dextroamphetamine Sulf ER 15MG" as it should, they scratched out "BARR" and wrote "Global" on the manufacturer part. The description label on the bottle says the pills should be clear and brown and imprint...

Small orange pill apo on one side d 5 with a score

I found a bottle of mixed pills. They are small orange peachy pills with APO on one side, D and 5 on the other with a score through the center of the D and 5. ## I have a small orange pill with apo one side and d5 on the other. ## Just curious, what is the shape of this orange pill being described? From what I can tell, many other types of pills with this APO marking seem to be of Canadian origin. The Canadian company who makes these goes by the name of "Apotex Inc." I would recommend contacting them directly regarding this pill to see what they have to say about it. Posted below is a link to their contact page: Please post back if you find out anymore information. ## This is a dexedrine pill by the company Apotex Inc.

Dexadrime for narcolepsy

This was prescribed for narcolepsy, and I'm looking for more details. ## I have just been prescribed m-amphet 30 XR capsules made by Prasco.

Dexedrine Missing?

I was told by several Pharmacies that Dexedrine & the generic is NOT available, (on manufacturer back order, etc.), Does anyone have/not have the same problem? Please advise ## There have been a couple of other posts about this problem recently.
