Desoxyn (methamphetamine) for ADHD: I feel like I can breathe! This is the only medicine that resolves my ADD symptoms. I have tried everything else and they just can't compare. Totally makes it so I have the courage to live again, to walk up to people I don't know and talk to them, to feel less depressed, to stand up for myself, and above all to focus on the important things. I wish more doctors were informed of how helpful it really is to people who have adult ADD.
Desoxyn (methamphetamine) for ADHD: MUCH BETTER than Adderall, Vyvanse, or Dexedrine, or Ritalin. IT is more effective for performing my scores on tests and learning. It is better for the social anxiety component of ADHD. It is neurotoxic so you may not want to stay on it for the entire year, however, IT DOES have medical value at low doses if used by RESPONSIBLE users for several months out of the year. IT IS very effective for controlling treatment resistant depression and appetite problems as well. However, appetite would return to baseline when stopping Desoxyn. I think this medicine should be strictly controlled, but should be available to patients who could truly benefit from it. It has helped me get through a very difficult year, but my doctor took me off it.
methamphetamine for ADHD: Immediately after starting this I began focusing on life and stopped having racing thoughts of future fortune, and bad memories. Now I got a job, girlfriend, and loving the now.
Desoxyn (methamphetamine) for ADHD: Works very good as a stimulant in the treatment. It also helps in calming the brain. Storm of thoughts without the hyperfocus that other stimulants seem to bring on.
Desoxyn Gradumet (methamphetamine): This is the best medicine that I have taken for my condition. I took it for years because of Narcolepsy mainly but have a shortened attention span also. Never had a problem with it. Never needed to increase the 10mg dosage per day. With my doctor retiring and new doctors obsessed with Provigil I've had nothing but problems in all directions. From my prescription plan not wanting to pay for the 800 mg per day that I need to take to the performance of the medicine. I also have to take 36 mg of Concerta.
Desoxyn (methamphetamine) for ADHD: Desoxyn has opened doors to my life, heart, and mind that I thought would never be able to be opened and be shared with the world. The side effects were little to none and other medicines side effects greatly outweighed the Desoxyn effects.

Desoxyn (methamphetamine) for ADHD: I took the tablets after being on all forms of Dexedrine, Ritalin, Adderral, etc. It had no side effects, but was not as big a deal as it is made out to be. Dextroamphetamine spansules (brand SKF) are far more effective and long-lasting for ADHD, which I've dealt with.

Desoxyn (methamphetamine) for ADHD: After trying Strattera, Vyvanse, Adderall and Dexedrine with side-effects that interfered with my daily life, I was prescribed Desoxyn. A smaller dose of Desoxyn gives a far greater primary effectiveness than any other medicine, and with significantly less side-effects than any other medicine. As far as my ADHD is concerned, this medication is absolutely amazing at helping me out.

Desoxyn (methamphetamine) for ADHD: I would give it a 10 but will err towards conservative and give a 9; only because it has a high abuse potential and humans are inherently prone to some type of addiction. It has pretty much NO side effects if taken as directed for adult add and after 5 years on it, I feel it has stabilized me more than any others. Adderall is second place for me but it is more likely to make me irritable after therapeutic effects wane for the day. I have taken Desoxyn before and fell asleep!
