This page will give you general information about dexamfetamine. It is not medical advice.
Always talk to your doctor about your situation and whether this medication is for you.
Dexamfetamine is a 'controlled drug'
This is because it might be sold as a street drug.
This means that the pharmacy must take special care of the tablets by locking them in a cupboard. The doctor must also write extra things on the prescription, like the total amount needed in words and figures to make it very clear.
A prescription for dexamfetamine must be dispensed by the pharmacy within 28 days of the prescription being written (you can keep most other prescriptions for six months).
You cannot get an emergency supply of dexamfetamine without a prescription and if you must take it to school, it might have to be locked in a safe place or special arrangements put in place.
