Comment from: 45-54 Female on Treatment for 10+ years (Patient) Published: October 06

I have been taking Dexedrine Spansules for over ten years along with Prozac and Wellbutrin to treat chronic depression and adult Attention Deficit Disorder. That combination has worked very well for me. On two occasions my psychiatrist and I have tried taking the Dexedrine out of the mix, and both times we have seen my ADD symptoms reappear within a week and my depression worsen after about three weeks.

Adult ADD. No Hyperactivity. I was being treated for Anxiety and depression. Tried 8-10 different medications. Finally, was diagnosed with ADD. Tried Concerta. Bad side effects. Now on Dexedrine Spansules. So, far it is helping a lot.

This Medication has been a God sent! I remember that when ever I have been actually able to recieving this medication I was a more productive individual in 90% of my daily activities. Compared to the normal 20-35% Every time I have my medication I know that my head is finally back on my shoulders and I am able to finally focus and accomplish the tasks I am expected to!!! This is very helpful with my diabetes control and I am thankful that I still have no secondary complications to Diabetes after 25yrs.

I have chronic kidney failure and am using peritoneal dialysis. I quickly became depressed and was given Wellbutrin in combination with Paxil and Clonazapam. I found I would not remember to keep my dialysis log book consistent and would forget to even do the dialysis some days not taking medicines. This was leading to even more failing health until I was finally diagnosed with ADD. Within a short amount of time and some trial and error I was given Dexedrine. I began to do much better with my dialysis and my mind was paying attention to what I was doing. I have moderate to high blood pressure but the Dexedrine made very little change to my blood pressure. Dexedrine was the missing drug in my therapy and now with the right combinations of Dexedrine and my other medications my Kidney problems are much better controlled by increased attention and the will to take better care of my possible life threating condition. I am very grateful for this medication.
