I have used dexedrine for almost 16 years (since 5th grade) and agree that it has been a life-saver. To be completely honest, I never write reviews like this, however, I know I wouldn't be the successful ivy league graduate I am today without dexedrine. I take a low dose- 5 mg twice a day - which has made an enormous difference. Dexedrine makes me feel refreshed, focused, and efficient. I have ne...

I started taking this medicine in the summer of 1989, when I was 9 years old. Two weeks later, my family and I went to Disneyland. While riding the Star Tours ride, I had a hallucination as a result of all the shaking and flashing lights. I could hear someone sing the scarecrow song from "The Wizard of Oz" in another language that I couldnt identify. That was followed by a flash of bright color then a quick rush to the head that felt like someone had just lit a cherry bomb inside my head. This was followed by a terrible headache and blurry vision that lasted ten minutes. This happened every time I ran, it was a little hot, or if I got shook(riding horses, getting spun around in the air by my dad etc.). That fall it happened during PE, and it was so intense I dropped to the floor. My parents got me to a doctor, tests were ran on me the whole next week. It was determined that Dexedrine was the cause.

My son took Dexedrine from age 7 thru high school. It was a life-saver. He was able to focus, slow down enough to think before taking action. My only regret is my son chose not to continue with it into adult life. He needs it.
