is Desoxyn usually prescribe as "Desoxyn" or its generic name?

My new Dr. doesn't seem to know what Desoxyn is, but if I mention it's methamphetamine, I'm sure he'll freak out as I'm sure the people at the pharmacy as well. So to anyone here who have gotten prescribed Desoxyn, is it usually "Desoxyn" written on the prescription or another name?

Your doctor and/or your pharmacist are more educated (even if they don't know this name brand) on medications than the average Joe who will just think of a meth head. It's a pharmaceutical for a reason, and if it's right for you, they will handle it just like any other medication without any freak out.

It’s always going to go by the generic/pharmacological name, “methamphetamine”. Even if filling an Rx for the Brand Desoxyn, it will still also be listed by pharmacological name on the Rx bottle too. At least mine is and has been for both generic and name brand.

My Dr. seem to have come out of the Adderall era. He seemed eager to put me on it. I bet he's never heard of Evekeo, either. You'll be surprised how many of these doctors I've seen are under the rock.

most newbie pharmacist assistant types always gave me a strange look even with a "dextroamphetamine" prescription.
