Comment:
Best medication for ADHD by far. It has less side effects than all the others, I've tried all the other medications for ADHD and none of them even come close to Desoxyn's efficacy.

It used to be available as a 15mg ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have taken Desoxyn for just over four years now, and I am prescribed it for ADD as well as to help with my refractory depression.
