Comment:
I was diagnosed two years ago with ADHD Combined Type, which means that I vary between being a lethargic daydreamer and an scatterbrained chatterbox. My doctor and I are still trying to find the best medication and dosage to treat me, but so far I have found the Dex to be the most effective.

Night and day improvement for my entire life. Where there was no structure and organization, there now is. Been on it 18mos (7.5 mg day) and I wish I would have been on it when I was a kid. So thankful to have my ADD in check now. Dry mouth is no big thing.

Finally came back to ADHD and put me on 10 mg Dexredrine capsule. The first significant positive difference. Now I went up to 20 mg a day (in morning), and now 30 mg ( 20 in morning and 10 at Noon) ... Show Full Comment
