> 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?

100 mg seem way too high of a dose for add. Im not a Doctor but i wouldnt go any higher with your dose.I am a 31 year old male with add. I have been taking Dexedrine for 2 weeks. It has really helped me with day to day tasks.I think there is a lot of positive things if it is used at a safe dose. I take 30mg a day and it is working fine for me . Even if my body adjusts to that level i wont take the mg any higher. As a part business owner over 25 employees I also work long hours but i find time 5 days a week to get to the gym for 1 hour and 15 minutes. I work hard at keeping fit at 5-10 180lb. I dont rely on dexedrine to maintain my weight. Please take time to get on a exercise program and nutritious diet.
This will help you feel a lot better mentally and
