You’ve probably heard of the drug Dexedrine, but do you know what it’s used for? It is most commonly prescribed to people with ADHD and narcolepsy, but it also has an unexpected side effect — reducing anger. As a result, many people use Dexedrine as a substitute for anti-anxiety medication or to calm themselves before bed. Of course, that’s where the problem arises.
Dexedrine is just like any other drug. Gratitude Lodge is here to tell you about Dexedrine Abuse and Anger Anxiety so that you can make an informed decision regarding your actions.
The side effects of any drug will vary from person to person. Some people may suffer from headaches or migraines. Others may feel lethargic and experience severe abdominal pain or break out in a rash. Moreover, some people have reported having suicidal thoughts or acting on them. Some of the side effects are as follows:
1. Increased blood pressure and pulse.
2. Nausea, dizziness, unsteady walking, or
3. Severe mood changes or psychosis (a severe loss of touch with reality) after taking medication with Dexedrine.
4. Extreme weight loss or weight gain.
5. Drowsiness, fatigue, depression, and insomnia.
6. Muscle tension, back pain, and muscle aches/soreness.
7. Weakness or numbness in the hands and feet.
8. Slow heart rate or low blood pressure (leading to fainting).
9. Impulsive behaviour with poor judgment (such as spending sprees).
10. Psychotic behaviour and paranoia
Be sure to use your brain as much as you can. You don’t want to blame yourself or others in a drug-induced episode, so you must have a support system when using any drug, especially when you can’t be yourself. When you do use Dexedrine, be sure to keep close track of your daily usage and maintain very strict limits.
Try to eat a balanced diet and exercise often. That can help your body get used to the drug and keep you healthy overall. Also, try to develop good study habits so that you don’t even need medication to concentrate.
