... lot of reference to adhd so which is it for? From what I'm reading doctors won't prescribe for weightless but for people with add yet it's listed as a weight loss drug..confused
Desoxyn is used for both ADD/ADHD and weight loss. It's generic name is methamphetamine. Amphetamines and methamphetamines are stimulants which greatly reduce appetite. Persons with ADD/ADHD need stimulants, paradoxically, to stimulate part of their brain to kick in and function to calm them down and allow them to sit still and focus, or concentrate, in order to learn or work. It also causes them to lose weight due to appetite suppression, the same as anyone else would lose weight. As soon as the amphetamine or methamphetamine wears off, be ready for tremendous hunger if you haven't made yourself eat something while the drug was in effect.
