... dexedrine spanules. He told me to take 1-3 capsules any time i thought i needed it. Online it says to only take them 4-6 hours apart, and the pharmasist told me to take them all at the same time. I am confused!!! One day i also took one pill at 530 am, one at 8 am and the next at 1230, at about 530 pm, i started feeling very warm, veeery restless, couldnt sit down, was soo thirsty, couldnt see straight, and my heart was pounding so hard, i was so scared! It lasted for about 4 hours. My friend said stacking a med can be bad, especially if itis a time released capsule. Does anyone have an idea what could have happened???
Dexedrine spansules are long acting/time release formulations and can be given once or twice daily (not every 4 to 6 hours) depending on what works best for you. It may take a couple of weeks of trial and error before you find what dosage works the best.
I think maybe 4 spansules in less than 12 hours is far too much and the cause of your symptoms.
I would start again. Start with 1 when you wake up and repeat again mid-afternoon. Don't take another unless you really need to and see how you go. All the best.
