This medication has always worked best for me. Every time a new drug came out, my doctor had me try it to make sure I was using the most effective one. I always came back to Dexedrine - no bad side effects, and very effective. Sadly, Dexedrine Spansule Oral will no longer be manufactured!

I am 25, and my 4 year old son and I have ADHD, we are both on Dexedrine, and its a miracle! I love it, my son is the little boy i knew i always had but was never able to "see" and i was on Strattera at first with no result other than bad side effects. This has been helping me with my job and also helped my little man excel in school, and not have outburst and break things anymore :)

I've been on various ADHD meds for the majority of my life. Ages 6-29 to be exact. This works very effectively in controling my hyperactivity. Off meds, I'm prone to outburst, constant moving and talking, being disruptive and seeking attention, and it's hard to sit still or stay on task. I get bored very easily as well. While I'm medicated, I am completely the opposite. I work in c ... Show Full Comment

I am 25 with ADD. I was tested for it my Kindergarden year and tested for a Learning Disablity too. I tried Ritalin but it made me really sick to my stomach.

It was sad on the days I forgot to take it my teachers, my parents and my ... Show Full Comment
