Dexedrine Overview

Dextroamphetamine[note 1] is a potent central nervous system (CNS) stimulant and amphetamine enantiomer that is prescribed for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy.[16][17] It is also used as an athletic performance and cognitive enhancer, and recreationally as an aphrodisiac and euphoriant.

Small orange pill apo on one side d 5 with a score
3 Replies RSS
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: apotex.com/global/contact Please post back if you find out anymore information. ## This is a dexedrine pill by the company Apotex Inc.

Dexadrime for narcolepsy
4 Replies RSS
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. I had been trying to get the Shire name brand but my insurance company couldn't decide whether they would give it to me. Finally decided on Prasco. Took yesterday for 1st time and think they might work. Time will tell and I will post. I take for narcolepsy secondary to opiate usage. I am on a morphine infusion pump with flow of about 30mg continuous/day. Without these pills I do not function or wake up. I will definitely update. Took one 50 minutes ago and can feel myself waking up. Good morning and hopefully good day! ## I hope you have good results with that combo of meds! All I get now is adipex. ## Stimulants are used to treat condition...

Dexedrine question
3 Replies RSS
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 availability
12 Replies RSS
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 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. Unfortunately, the only thing that anyone can really suggest as a solution would be for you to contact your doctor and see if there is an alternative medication you can use in the meantime. Does anyone else have any advice to add? ## I have read that the manufacturer should have all back orders filled by end of June. I had to call no less than 25 Pharmacies yesterday to fill my prescription, hopefully next months will be easier. ## I have used the Barr Dextroamphetamine for many years. I take 15mg 3x/day. I have always gotten my rx filled at...

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 ...

the effectiveness of dextroamphetamine that is old
2 Replies RSS
I have filled a prescription for dextroamphetamine in October 2016. I misplaced it and now found it. Is it still good? ## Just want to know if Ian still use it the prescription date is October 2016. ## Generally, if it is in a bottle as dispensed from your pharmacy, it is good for one year from that original date. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, irritability, and anorexia. Is there anything else I can help with?

Dexedrine: How much is too much?
3 Replies RSS
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...

Guide for Dexedrine Generics
3 Replies RSS
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...

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 NIH.gov 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...
