After being prescribed about every ADD med available, You finally found a doctor who is open minded enough to give Desoxyn 5mg a try. It’s not that Adderall and Dexedrine aren’t stimulating- they are. The problem with both is that the side effects increase with the dose. So, to get a desirable effect with either of these medicines, you’re also stimulating your body’s Peripheral Nervous System, bringing about a host of unwanted side effects like nervousness/jitteriness, racing heart, etc. A few things about Desoxyn: It’s potent. One 5mg pill is about the equivalent of 15mg of Adderall. It’s targeted. It produces a high degree of dopamine reuptake inhibition, and does not target the PNS like its cousins Adderall and Dexedrine. Finally, it has very few side effects. It simply is a much more comfortable experience than any other ADD med I’ve ever taken.

Is Desoxyn As Easy To Obtain As Crystal Meth?
Because of its neurotoxic profile, its addictive nature, the risk of withdrawal, and the stigma associated with its similarity to crystal meth, Desoxyn treatment is used as a last resort. A lot of countries simply don’t allow the dispensing of Desoxyn prescriptions, relying instead on other medications for ADHD.
In countries where Desoxyn is prescribed, with the abuse of prescribed medicine becoming more frequent worldwide, Desoxyn is being seen more – in patient’s medicine cabinets, and on the streets. Because of its powerful effects, Desoxyn is considered a holy relic by drug-seekers – many will fake symptoms of ADHD to get a prescription.
Drug seekers are more likely to find themselves prescribed weaker stimulants, such as Ritalin. The emerging rumors of a “legal, prescription crystal meth” has brought Desoxyn closer to the spotlight. Now, more than ever, Desoxyn is being peddled into the street by dealers, who either feign an illness to get their prescription or buy it from someone else with a legitimate need for the drug.
General: Desoxyn tablets should be used with caution in patients with even mild hypertension.
Methamphetamine should not be used to combat fatigue or to replace rest in normal persons.
Prescribing and dispensing of methamphetamine should be limited to the smallest amount that is feasible at one time in order to minimize the possibility of overdosage.
Information for Patients: The patient should be informed that methamphetamine may impair the ability to engage in potentially hazardous activities, such as, operating machinery or driving a motor vehicle.
