A trade name for methamphetamine hydrochloride, Desoxyn is a medication used to treat ADHD, obesity, and other conditions. As a prescription, it’s safe. As a drug of abuse, Desoxyn is anything but. 

Desoxyn can create feelings of intense energy and euphoria when abused. This causes the body to release massive amounts of the neurotransmitter dopamine, used in our reward system. The rush of dopamine reinforces drug-taking behaviors. Also, it’s easy to build up a tolerance to Desoxyn, meaning larger amounts of the drug have to be taken for the same effects. 

It's possible to overdose on Desoxyn, and side effects include heart attack and stroke. Detoxing from Desoxyn addiction is best done in a clinical detox setting for best results.
