Dexedrine (generic name Dextroamphetamine) is a psycho-stimulant drug that is sometimes prescribed to treat Attention Deficit Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, extreme cases of obesity, treatment-resistant depression, and various sleep disorders. However, Dexedrine is frequently abused, and its users develop increasingly negative side effects over time.

The abuse of Dexedrine results in physical effects comparable to other stimulants such as Ritalin, cocaine, or methamphetamines. Common side effects of Dexedrine abuse are irregular heart rhythms, rapid heart rate, extreme anxiety, agitation, aggression, weight loss, insomnia, suicidal ideations, erratic behaviors, tremors, paranoia, depression, and painful withdrawals. When taken by young people, particularly teenagers and pre-teens, Dexedrine can cause stunted growth or psychosis. When Dexedrine is abused in higher and higher doses, the severity of these side effects increases exponentially.
