Ending a Long-Term Drug Treatment

“I’ve been taking Dexedrine since being diagnosed with ADHD nine years ago. Will I be harmed if I stop the drug?”

If you’ve been taking the drug that long, you should taper off slowly by decreasing the dose over time. If you were to stop abruptly, you might feel agitated for several days. Discuss your decision to stop taking Dexedrine – and the logistics of decreasing the dose – with the physician who prescribed it.
