About Dexedrine Addiction
Dexedrine is a stimulant sold under the brand name Dextrostat and prescribed for the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. Like all stimulant drugs, Dexedrine works within the central nervous system to induce calmness and increased focus for those needing it. When used for the treatment of narcolepsy, it induces wakefulness, allowing individuals to re-engage in activities abandoned. Dexedrine is a powerful drug, and it does carry with it the very real risk of addiction. Dexedrine Addiction can occur when people take the drug in higher doses than prescribed or use the drug to treat health issues the drug wasn’t developed to treat.
When Dexedrine has been abused, even for a short period of time, the likelihood of an individual’s brain is negatively affected is quite high. Often the first sign of a problem is the complete dependence on Dexedrine to function throughout during the day. Should an individual find himself or herself unable to start their day without the Dexedrine, the chances that a dangerous drug dependency has developed is a reality. Basic brain rewiring takes place when Dexedrine has become a constant in a patient’s daily routine. While it is true that some can juggle casual use of this addictive stimulant, others will quickly fall prey to its allure and develop full-blown Dexedrine addiction.
