One of the only forms of regulated and permissible methamphetamines, Desoxyn can be administered to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
This central nervous system stimulant can speed up the process of neurotransmitter activity in the brain, as well as regulate the release of dopamine and other hormones.
This can make it beneficial for those with ADHD, as it can boost cognitive function levels, but misuse can lead to addiction.
In fact, independent studies have found that over 62% of college students have been offered prescription amphetamines, as the rate of prescription drug abuse continues to climb.

Do not take this medication late in the day because it may cause you to have trouble sleeping.
If you suddenly stop using this medication, you may have withdrawal symptoms (such as severe tiredness, sleep problems, mental/mood changes such as depression).

Tell your doctor or pharmacist right away if you have withdrawal.
