Dex Spansules

It's been several years since I took Dexedrine, I went off them for personal reasons. I recently started back up again, the experience now is completely different. I am clenching my teeth, sweating and feeling overheated, neck and shoulders are tight and uncomfortable, a bit of anxiety and pounding heart.

I had none of these symptoms when I took it before. Is this usual?

I took spansules for about 7 years before switching to adderall. It seemed like all of a sudden one day they stopped working and gave me side effects.

I had the same side effects when my dose was a bit too high. Iím just guessing but it seems like your body is still getting adjusted to Dex or your dose may be too much. Discussing these issues with your Dr. is the best bet.

Re: Dex Spansules

ok, I'm only on 10 mgs a day at the moment, I used to be on 40mg. Maybe it is just about getting used to it but I don't think I can continue, i'll bring it up with my Doc. Thanks for responding. 00+
