Dexedrine addiction is most common among students in either high school or college due to its “Upper” effects. In recent years as schools have become increasingly more competitive, it has become more common for students to take the medication illegally so that they are able to stay up later studying to get ahead. Dexedrine is often prescribed for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) but when it is taken by someone who doesn’t have ADHD it has the opposite effect, it allows the user to feel alert, euphoric and able to do more than they would be able to without it. Middle class women are also a demographic of the users that have increased in previous years. The amount of energy that the drug gives you can be incredibly addicting when you are trying to do everything and you feel like you have no time to get it done.
How do I know if I or my child has a problem?
Mood changes are often the first sign that a drug such as Dexedrine is being abused. A person abusing Dexedrine may also be more energetic, nervous or anxious than they previously were. Sometimes a Dexedrine addiction will start as a one or two time thing and gradually increases without the user noticing. If you can catch the problem early enough, a minimal amount of intervention may be necessary.
