This is a personal  medication review, not everyone will react to medication the same, so if you have any concerns about the current medication you are taking please talk to you prescriber.

Dexamfetamine is a medication that belongs to the class of central nervous system stimulants. It is similar in structure and effects to dextroamphetamine, and is also used primarily to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) Dexamfetamine works by increasing the levels of certain neurotransmitters in the brain, such as dopamine and norepinephrine, which help to regulate attention and other ADHD symptoms.
