Is dextroamphetamine a good choice to counteract the fatigue?
16 Nov 2010
If Saphris is really affecting your daily activities by causing drowsiness, etc. your doctor may need to review the medication. Perhaps try a lower dose or another medicine. I personally don't think taking dextroamphetamine, to counteract the side effect symptoms , is a good option.
Please discuss with your doctor... they may have some ideas.
