It's why I dislike ADHD medications like Dexedrine. It's highly controlled and regulated...and the reason I don't feel 100% taking it even it it helps tremendously and take it as directed. I feel like I'm doing something wrong or illegal.

So your GP would have to prescribe it off label. I got one of my previous GPs to prescribe it for me. It was okay, but I developed a rash on it, so I stopped it.
