Addiction to Dexedrine

Posted by Tracy on December 1, 1999, at 3:11:35

I was diagnosed with adult onset add about 3 years ago. My doctor started me on Ritalin and after 8 months my tolerance increased so much that I was switched to Dexedrine. I've been taking Dexedrine for the past two years now. My initial dose was 30 mg. per day (2 5mg tabs 3x a day). Now I can barely feel the effects of 100+mg per day. I know that I am severely addicted yet at the same time I feel powerless to do anything about it. On the medication I can work 60 hour weeks and still have plenty of energy. I'm afraid
of how my life will change if I discontinue its use but I know it is impossible to continue on in this pattern. Dexedrine has also helped control my appetite and stay at a desirable weight. Are there any others out there who share my problem?
