A central nervous system stimulant used to treat conditions like narcolepsy and ADHD, dextroamphetamine is often prescribed under the brand name Dexedrine. Although chemically similar to illicit stimulants, it’s generally safe when used correctly. Dextroamphetamine abuse is another story, however. 

When a person uses dextroamphetamine recreationally, or takes higher doses than they’re prescribed, they can experience euphoric feelings due to the way the drug affects our nervous system. However, these feelings decrease with repeated abuse. A person has to take larger amounts of dextroamphetamine to feel the same sensations. These repetitive behaviors quickly turn into addiction. 

Dextroamphetamine addiction is treatable. Treatment for dextroamphetamine abuse should start with a professional detox provider.
