Dextroamphetamine is a central nervous system stimulant and an amphetamine enantiomer that is prescribed for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and narcolepsy.
DEXEDRINE is an integral part of a total treatment program for ADHD that may include other measures (psychological, educational, social) for patients with this syndrome. Stimulants are not intended for use in patients who exhibit symptoms secondary to environmental factors and/or other primary psychiatric disorders, including psychosis. Appropriate educational placement is essential and psychosocial intervention is often helpful. When remedial measures alone are insufficient, the decision to prescribe stimulant medication will depend upon the physician’s assessment of the chronicity and severity of the patient’s symptoms
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Usual dose is 5 to 60 mg per day in divided doses, depending on the individual patient response. Narcolepsy seldom occurs in children under 12 years of age. The suggested initial dose for patients aged 6 to 12 is 5 mg daily. In patients 12 years of age and older, start with 10 mg daily. If adverse reactions appear (e.g., insomnia or anorexia), dosage should be reduced. The optimal dosage varies widely by patient; it is not determined by age, weight, or height, but rather by how a person metabolizes the medication.
During treatment, your doctor may periodically ask you to stop taking your Dexedrine so that he or she can monitor ADHD symptoms; check vital statistics including blood, heart, and blood pressure; or evaluate height and weight. If any problems are found, your doctor may recommend discontinuing treatment
