I take Dexadrine 40mg/day
> First of all - do you have any heart problems from the usage? (murmurs,tachycardia,fast beat,irregular beat,pain,etc.)
I had some symptoms, like I felt like my heart was beating harder or faster, but I wore a 24 hour heart monitior and the printout showed that everything was normal. I think I was just worried about having the symptoms and noticing my heartbeat more. My BP is also the same as it was before.
> Second of all - how do you deal with appetite suppresion? Are you able to normally eat at least 3 meals/day?
I have no appetite suppression from 40mg/day of Dexadrine. Sometimes I think it increased my appetite.
> Third of all - how do you deal with "comedown"/"crash"/when the amphetamines stop working in the evening?
For me Dexadrine has very little comedown/crash.
Ritalin was horrific and I felt very emotionally and physically sour when it wore off.
Adderall had less wearoff than Ritalin, but it had much worse physical symptoms like rapid heartbeat, dry mouth, sweaty palms, nervousness, etc.
