Adderall vs. Dexedrine- ADHD- major HD!!

Posted by MissyMissy on May 29, 2001, at 14:40:31

Adderall has definitely helped me study. It's improved my patience a little too. I'm taking 20mg 2x day. I've been reading more about Dexedrine and it's ability to attack impulsiveness and the "short-fuse." I still have issues with the damn short-fuse and talking a million miles an hour. Any opinions regarding one over the other??? Thanks!

"Studies have shown that methylphenidate, dextroamphetamine, and pemoline are equally effective in reducing hyperactivity, inattentiveness, and impulsivity in children with ADHD (or its diagnostic precursors)."

"Olvera et al. (1996) [78] performed a 5-week open trial of venlafaxine in fourteen 8- to 17-year-old subjects and found statistically significant reductions in parent ratings of Impulsivity and Hyperactivity on the Conners Parent rating scales."
