Yep...i have it. I feel relieved to know that i'm just not a nut job lol
I've been given Dexamphetamine 5mg tablets. My doctor has put me on a high dose..as follows...
15mg when waking
15mg around lunch
10mg in the afternoon
10mg at night
so a total of 50mg's per day....
I know this medication can be addictive, but i'm not heading down that path. I have been prescribed this medication for a reason, and hopefully it'll do the trick! both the specialist i saw and my doctor highly recommend this treatment for ADHD and find it quite successful.
I'm a little concerned they have gluten in them...every internet search i'm doing says they contain wheat starch, but very minimal amounts of gluten. (I'm gluten intolerant). But i guess i'll just have to start my dose tomorrow and see how i go!
I welcome any comments, criticisms, concerns....anything you guys have to say, because i value the opinions and knowledge of each and every one of you :)
